Light and floral really doesn't describe Imperial, gumdrops is more like it. For Braes of Glenlivet on the other hand it's to the T, closer (IMHO) to Linkwood.
... mind you, it's a Gordon & McPhail 12 yo Imperial 1990 so it may very well be a fairly common item across the pond. Over here it's the only one I've ever seen, so I bought two bottles back in 2004.
The other reason is that I believe Braeval reopened last summer. This was the announcement I saw:

(..."only based on heresay" - I love it!)
I'll wait quietly with my lone Imperial for the tasting. ... the lair is under construction and I've got all the bottles strewn around on the floor- I'd best go look for my bottle this week.
