    A proper second album from Bimber Distillery that's not all about the cask.
    • Nose
      86 86
      An initial sweet, tinned pineapple note with vanilla custard, candy hearts and a whisper of mocha tart and cinnamon. It has a buttery quality to it, but also nice notes of red apples and pear skin.
    • Taste
      86 86
      The palate's signature is much more oak-y than the nose suggests, which does a good job at 'hiding' the high char level, although it never completely goes over the edge. Love the oiliness of the spirit. The pineapple makes an encore and is accompanied by fudge, caramel and even a hint of lime juice, but there's also lots of cloves and a touch of pepper and ginger, skewing the balance somewhat.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Lingering spices with a hint of thyme and mint, somewhat cough syrup-y. Pretty dry.

    • Nose
      Chocolate mocha and cinnamon upfront. Vanilla sugar and caramel. Also some stone fruits , ripe mangoes and melons. A touch of orange and very floral. A lovely delicate nose.
    • Taste
      Lovely creamy mouthfeel. Vanilla and honey. Burnt sugar. More mango and melon notes. Some bitter orange peels. Cinnamon and some white pepper. Almond extract and milk chocolate.
    • Finish
      More mocha notes here. Some drying tannins from the oak. More of that white pepper spice.

    herbaceous, spicy, but also fresh on the palate, a little pastry with vanilla and tart apple
    on the palate, sweet sensation, herbaceous, mentholated, still cereals and fruits in return (compote a little overcooked by the fire!), a little sweet, a little brandy, a little caramelized, the fruit draws on the candied pineapple, dark chocolate too.
    the finish on sweet sherry, woody, spicy, vegetal again and this freshness that stays on the herbs.

    For a toddler of 3 years this is a decent dram - easy to drink until it suddenly hits you - the floor that is as you'll be as pissed as a pudding.

    Well worth a try.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Quite light on the nose, fruits (perhaps citrus), some wood.
    • Taste
      85 85
      A pleasant sweetness such as the syrup from tinned pineapple, but with a touch of gentle spice.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Surprisingly gentle, it lingers like love's first kiss.

  5. larswehmeier scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    For a still very young malt of a new distillery, this is already quite promising.
    • Nose
      First impression very sweet and light fruity. Then becomes malty over time. Reminiscent of molasses.
    • Taste
      Spicy on the tongue than on the nose. Quite a lot of pressure. You can feel the somewhat impetuous youth. A lot of vanilla.
    • Finish
      Very short finish. A little spicy.

  6. AgentMunky scored this whisky 80 points Expert Junior

    • Nose
      65 65
      6.5 // 6

      Heavy malt, heavy alcohol. Rustic.
    • Taste
      85 85
      8.5 // 8

      Wildly fruity, with a bizarre-but-intriguing burnt-flower, vanilla-heavy flavor. // More subtle and delicate with a splash of water, but the vanilla/floral elements are maintained. Really cool stuff.
    • Finish
      90 90
      9 // 7

      Heavily aromatic, really heavy mouthfeel. Joyous. // Mellows out with water.

  7. topos did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    • Nose
      dried apricot, olive oil, a little grilled pineapple, dry roasting chilli flakes
    • Taste
      tinned pineapple, banana, a slight savory herbal side, quite palate coating, long finish

  8. Whiskylifestyle scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    This is a pretty nice release. The wood note is prominent at some points, but it can have it. Very oily and nice mouthfeel for a 3 year old. Quite pleasant!
    • Nose
      Vanilla, a hint of coconut, it’s a bit woody too. Pineapple. A buttery note. Honey, apples and then toffee.
    • Taste
      Lovely oily mouthfeel. A herbal note, lingering eucalyptus. There is some vanilla again. Then it goes towards spices such as cinnamon, cloves and black pepper. Caramel. The wood is here prominent as well. A light coconut note.
    • Finish
      The finish is long with mostly mint.

  9. thijs100 scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Very rich, thick sherry influence with mushrooms, chocolate and an abundance of dark, syrupy fruitiness — mainly cherries, some strawberries. Not too dry, which is sometimes the case with these heavily sherry-influenced whiskies. Finally a touch of toasted oak and tobacco leaves.
    • Taste
      Oily stuff. Modern sherried whisky with a pronounced but agreeable spiciness. A touch of almond paste, rum-soaked raisins and poached pears, but also milk chocolate. A whiff of burnt caramel.
    • Finish
      bit tannic but mostly more of the above.

  10. JimJaws scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior
