Imperial 1990/2002, G&M – Distillery Label, 40%

Review #772
Gordon & MacPhail have made a series of licensed bottlings from Imperial – “Distillery Label”. This is the 1990 vintage. So gentle on the nose. White fruits, slightly floral and marzipan.

Still white fruits in the taste, but some grassy and vegetal notes appears. Also some burned oak and apples. Sweet burned caramel in the finish joins the white fruits. Medium to long finish, which is quite impressive with the low ABV.

This is just a good classic Scotch whisky. It lacks a little due to the low ABV (yes – I would love it at 43-46%), but it´s still a fine straightforward whisky, with a touch of an old school style. I will give this 83/100 (20/21/21/21).
