Limit 1 Per Customer! Our 4th exclusive single cask of Imperial from Elixir Distillers... how lucky are we! The last one sold out it in a week, this one likely won't last much longer... there is only 191 bottles. Distilled October 2, 1998, it was matured 22 years in an ex-Bourbon Barrel, before bottling on June 24, 2021, at 54.1%. It has taken exactly a full year to reach us!

700ml ml Low Stock
Region: Scotland > Speyside
Vintage: 1998

Andrew's Tasting Note

Nose: fruity, waxy, decadent, and floral right off the hop; Juicy Fruit gum, beeswax candles, and Wine Gums; silky oak tones, Manuka honey, and pillowy marshmallow; baking spices, brown sugar and fruits galore: orange, grapefruit, mango, papaya, kiwi... I could go on. 

Palate: big, rich, decadent, and oozing with fruit; creme caramel, agave nectar, and more Manuka honey; more baking spices, brown sugar, and toasted marshmallow; loads of tropical fruits with everything found on the nose and more; it gets a touch darker, moving towards dark chocolate; still waxy in an old school kind of way.

Finish: rich, decadent, waxy, and coating, with toasted oak and baking spices; the fruits pop up now and then alternating with honey and other delights. 

Comment: these twenty-something Imperials from Elixir never seem to disappoint, and this one is no exception; this is an old-school whisky of the sort we don't see too much of anymore, but if we're lucky, maybe history will repeat itself and will see something like this from one of the many new distilleries in 15-20 years!
