  1. wisekycourse scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    nose:
    vegetal, malty, dry sherry with cooked and candied fruits on tangerine
    woody, walnut shell
    mouth:
    quite peppery spices, return of the malt very present, the intense oak, a little varnish
    return of cooked fruit, a little macerated, on the cooked pear and orange, a little bitterness occurs at this time, the heat of the alcohol and the spices come back, it makes and smells young, glue and the varnished wood
    return to the end of cooked fruits, slightly sweet, apple, pear and tangerine syrup
    final:
    medium, on spices, cooked almonds, dry wood, cooked fruits, quite raw in fact.

    The spirit and wood work well - very pleasant dram.

      Well balanced dram where the spirit and wood match - some dry notes and spice. A cigar malt.

    This is a bottle I bought through the Bimber Klub, a bottle I haven’t gotten round to opening yet, so it’s handy and apt to be trying it at the distillery.

    N: Coppery vegetal,….. My notes have soon become scant.
    T: Aromatic curry flavours with a coppery fruity vegetal base.
    F: Short, sherry-led, but the cask influence is well considered.
    C: A candidly young Bimber base with a separate oloroso layer sitting on top. Swings & roundabouts compared to the straight ex-bourbon cask release.
