Imperial 1995/2014, Signatory, 46%

Review #773
This is from the series ”The Un-Chillfiltered Collection” and comes from a hogshead with the cask number 50162. It is bottled for Vinmonopolet in Denmark, and only 334 bottles were made. Baked apples and vanilla in the smell, with a little dash of raisins.

White fruits, but in the baked kind of way, in the taste. A little dried fruits as well. The finish is warm and full of flavours. The dried fruits comes even more forward, and is accompanied by some oak. The vanilla is there, but very subtle in the background.

The years in the oak have really done a fine job with this Imperial spirit! I love when the white fruit flavours goes from “fresh to baked”, due to the maturation, and that’s certainly the case here! I will give this 88/100 (21/22/23/22).
