  2. thijs100 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Probably my favourite Bimber so far. The balance between cask and spirit seems to be spot on. A very mature whisky.
    • Nose
      Much lighter in color than its sibling, I get bright notes of lemon zest, sandalwood and resin. It opens up on some fresh fruits like apricots and red apple parts, but there's also a touch of sweethearts (the candy). Finally just a whiff of heather honey.
    • Taste
      An oily and thick mouthfeel, as I've grown accustomed to with Bimber. What follows is almost Pulteney-esque in terms of chalk, pepper and lemon. No salinity though and more oak. Also green grapes and maybe even a quick hit of pink grapefruit.
    • Finish
      Lingering notes of galia melon and citrus fruits. A whisper of menthol. Long.
