Imperial 9 yo (1998/2007), DT Battlehill, 43%

Review #750
This young Imperial is from the Duncan Taylor series Battlehill. Not much else is known, except that it should be natural colour and unchill filtered. It´s pleasant, but not much comes through in the smell. Some white fruits and a little baked apple pie.

Some more flavour and a little alcohol burn in the taste. White fruits and just a hint of oak spices – mostly a mix of oak and cinnamon. Some smoother honey notes comes forward in the finish, and leaves the expression a bit sweeter than what the overall impression showed.

It might be a bit young, but not in the way that you get loads of citrusy and grainy notes. In my opinion, when you have something like this, you should leave it longer in the casks or bottle it at a higher strength to preserve some of the flavours. I will give this 81/100 (20/20/21/20).
