    Nice and sweet with loads of banana. Islay is present too. Feels rather young.

  3. ffmdino did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    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
    • Nose
      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
    • Taste
      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 :-(
    • Finish
      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.
    • Nose
      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.
    • Taste
      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.
    • Finish
      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.

  6. Lorion scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Uncomplicated and delicious. 82 points.
    • Nose
      Ashy smoke. Sweet. Boiling sugar water, some cotton candy. Lime, mint.
    • Taste
      Tingling, smoky and sweet. Bitterness sets in. More like a lemon than a lime I have now. Ash remains.
    • Finish
      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.
