Imperial 19 yo (1995/2014), G&M, 43 %

Review #169
This is from the series ”Distillery Label” from Gordon & MacPhail. It is very light with fruity flavors and lots of vanilla on the nose. The oak and barley is mellow and it is generally very soft.

There is a bit more power in the taste, still with the vanilla, but some darker notes like raisins also appears. It is only 43 % and that makes the finish die rather fast… At first! But then suddenly it reappears and the sweetness and oaky notes lies silent in the mouth.

It is a bit boring to honest (not to be confused with bad quality!), but the finish was something a bit different I really haven’t tried before. Water doesn’t seems to do much neither due to the low ABV. I will give this 86/100 (21/22/22/21).
