    The colouring on this is mental, given it’s 2 y/o I can only say kudos to the makers. The nose doesn’t show the off / sour note that I feared. It’s actually surprisingly subtle on the nose and isn’t showing the off notes that I’d feared. There is a shoe leather note to it.

    The palate – wow! My god this is unbelievable, must have been aged in a really small cask as this can’t be normal. It’s well balanced and huge sherry, note super deep given age and the finish is a little sour and sweet (but not in a good way). Still this is a 2 year old whisky and really drinkable, it’s like a heavier sherried version of the Cotswold’s young malt.

    Interestingly i've subsequently found out that it was a 250l cask so i'm blown away they've been able to produce this quality of spirit

    Tried on my eye opening visit to Bimber, a hidden gem in a a London industrial estate. At 2.5 years old this already has a thick red colour. This is like nosing Xmas cake, incredible. Amazing complexity and richness on the palate for a whisky so young. Bravo. Seems to have flown a bit under the radar vs other young distilleries yet to release their first whisky. That won't last long!
