NOSE : Opens up with subtle blooming violets, Provence lavender fields and honeysuckle. A slightly tart, fruity note follows – pineapple and pink grapefruit peel.
PALATE : Madeira cake with caramel icing laid on a beeswax-polished oak table. With a drop of water, there’s more refined wood notes, walnuts and a jar of Mirabelle plums soaked in Calvados.
FINISH : Mint drops, camphor, dry hay and cups of genmaicha green tea, sweetened with a drop of heather honey.
This single malt was distilled at Imperial distillery in 1989 and aged for over three decades in an ex-bourbon barrel. Since Imperial closed its doors in 1998, its whiskies have become increasingly rare; this is a fine example of its refined, floral style. Only 172 bottles produced, exclusively for the USA.
