    A stunning example of what Bimber can do with Sherry. This is a sherry cask finish, and it works perfectly. Highly drinkable without water at this abv. Bimber work those high abvs so well on nearly all their releases. I'm not usually a go-to sherried whisky guy, but Bimber are producing interesting, different and delicious sherried whisky again and again. This is my second visit to a released Bimber that has px cask in the mix (the 1st being my first), and in my opinion Bimber works so well with PX done in the right way. This bottle is the perfect choice for the first KLUB release - special, and different to the many recent releases. Great work Bimber.

    Bimber Klub Release No.1 - Pedro Ximenez Finish

    The spirit was initially matured 1st fill American oak ex-bourbon casks, and then expertly married and finished in Pedro Ximenez sherry butts.

    Pedro Ximenez (aka PX) is produced from overripened grapes of the same name. The grapes are slowly sundried to produce an exceptionally high concentration of natural sugars. The wine is then aged exclusively via oxidation, producing a viscous and rich sherry packed full of notes of dried fruits, raisins, figs and dates supporting darker flavours such as roasted coffee, chocolate and liquorice. An opulent partner to our light, fruit-forward spirit.

    The price of the bottle is £67.50

    Nose: rosehips, floral, spirited, ground almonds, barbecue rub
    Palate: syrupy, clove studded orange, bergamot and jasmine
    Finish: cardamom, allspice and date syrup. fruity

    With water more perfumed- jasmine and mandarin

    Feels far more accomplished than Bimber The First or Bimber Selfridges

    Tasted as part of The Dusties Bimber tasting with Matt McKay

    I normally prefer the bourbon finishes, but the sherry adds a nice complexity to this. Well worth a try.
    • Nose
      85 85
      The sherry notes come through clearly, muting the bourbon notes.
    • Taste
      86 86
      The sherry notes are very prominent in this one - the fruit gives ways to a slightly dry, herby palate.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Medium length - nice lingering spice.
