- Nice and sweet with loads of banana. Islay is present too. Feels rather young.
- the water can / should be left out
he needs devinit time> = 25 minutes
I miss the barrel; the influence is very small
not my malt, expected more barrel influence
but distinctly smoke (becomes less with time), sweetness, tropical fruit, light fruit, orange / tangerine, spearmint kaugimmi, slightly cheese becomes more
later: beer, dark malt, the smoke disappears, banana
with water: molasses ?, more cheese, menthol
soft and oily on the palate
minimal smoke, sweet, vanilla, dark sugar, tobacco comes, ham
later sweet fruits like pineapple, mango
with water: more smoke, something weird comes from the rum, then cabbage or leek :-(
medium to long
bitter, sticking to the tongue, slightly ash, slightly ham,
with water: banana, spicy
- St. Bim Bam almost cries out from Islay. Although many consider him too cheap, I would classify him as Bruichladdich. But that's just a feeling, it reminds me a little bit of the Port Charlotte Scottish Barley and I would guess that this then got a finish in the Rum Cask. But ultimately that does not matter. The guys from the Brühler whisky house have conjured up again a great whisky, which incidentally also with its 50 euros is not too expensive.
Smoke from swirling oak wood, just before the stove runs out and the rest crumbles to ash, very intense. Citrus fruits that are sprinkled with sugar, as well as the decorative edge with a cocktail. Nettle flower in the background.
Fresh and light, but was already to be guessed by the viscosity, but not too stormy despite the cask strength. The smoke, on the other hand, is very strong, a little towards richly toasted white bread. Now comes the lemon that overlays a little the chocolate notes. The Brenneselblüte is swallowing briefly on the tongue, together with brown cane sugar.
Smoky and medium-lasting oak notes, but mild and sweet, little to very little bitterness. After a while, the brown cane sugar comes through again.
- Uncomplicated and delicious. 82 points.
Ashy smoke. Sweet. Boiling sugar water, some cotton candy. Lime, mint.
Tingling, smoky and sweet. Bitterness sets in. More like a lemon than a lime I have now. Ash remains.
Medium long, subtle ash. Sweet.
- The holy Bim Bam is the third part of the "Godfather of Peat" series. Even though the quality of the first two parts already made it clear that I was going to bunker about it, I took the chance to test it at the Brühler Whiskyhaus booth at the Whisky Fair Festival in Limburg. Tasting notes follow the days, only so much in advance: class whisky.
