  1. karloff scored this whisky 86 points Specialist

    I am marking this as new make quality and I find it interesting and tasty.
    Look forward to tasting some of their aged barrel stuff.
    My first Bimber and the sample was courtesy of Holborndrinker.
    • Nose
      85 85
      New make is new make so you can't expect a complex nose.
      This has something a little different, it has a sweetness about it and it's more like confectionery with a little floral.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Shit! This packs a punch but once you are over the initial shock and the palate gets used to it, the flavours come in.
      Just like the nose it's sweet, this time marshmallow and those edible flying saucers with the sherbet in.
    • Finish
      86 86
      The finish is surprisingly short but that is ok, there is no off notes, just clean.

    If your base spirit is horrid, no amount of wood interaction will rescue it - fortunately this is gorgeous, like an overproof rum. I could sup this like a new born drinks milk.
    • Nose
      82 82
      Not overpowers by the alcohol, but smells like a quality white rum.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Green fruit, sweet yet clean in the mouth.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Considering you could run your car on this, surprisingly delicate - as smooth as I was in my youth (or at least in my own imagination).
