1995 Imperial 17 Year Old K&L Exclusive Signatory Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky (750ml)

SKU #1142680

This may be a first (and hopefully not a last!), but we've got a lovely Imperial from a great supplier that's even CHEAPER than the last cask of Imperial we purchased. I'm not going to read too much into this, but single malt prices seem to have come down for the first time in my nearly 10 years of doing this. Maybe we just got lucky, or maybe we're making better friends, but this is just a screaming deal. We purchased an octave from Duncan Taylor in the 2011 campaign and sold it readily for $100. Now we're looking at an equivalently aged cask for far less! We're talking about a closed distillery that's rather well regarded. It's just shocking. What's even more unusual is the quality of this cask. This lovely whisky shows all the complexity expected from this high quality facility. On the nose: a freshness that alternates between grassy fields and forest floor. The wood does not hinder the spirit in the slightest and a lovely, comforting grainy quality is evident, alongside the fresh foliage and subtle grass. Sweet herbs (maybe dill or mint), navel orange pith, and a textural richness that's surprising considering the lighter aromas. Long, lengthy, rich, even borderline-syrupy. This is sure to be a classic and maybe even collectable at this price! (David Othenin-Girard)
