Water Of Life Society Tasting 15/9
Tickets for this tasting were pre-sold and are now sold out.
If you have a ticket for this tasting, prepare yourself to be amazed by our very own Thomas McEntee of Benromach/Benriach fame. Thomas will be presenting 6 whiskies from the long gone Imperial Distillery.
Thomas started with 2 1995 distilled expressions matured for 16 or 18 years by Signatory vintage in matching ex-bourbon hogsheads
Next was this Sherry matured 1993-2011 expression from Gordon & MacPhail
The oldest Imperial expression sampled was provided by Wm Cadenhead’s with this 35 year old 1977 vintage single ex-bourbon cask
A 10 year old cask strength bottled by Duncan Taylor & Co Ltd. for Whisky Magazine in 2009 followed
And finally my favourite of the evening another Sherry butt matured Imperial, aged for 23 years and bottled at cask strength by Hunter Laing & Co. Ltd.
Many thanks to Thomas for putting together a varied and interesting selection of Imperial whiskies, rapidly becoming more and more scarce to obtain at sensible prices. This tasting was an absolute delight to experience the character of this, sadly now demolished, Speyside distillery.
