    • Nose
      Super fruity! A whiff of grapefruit at first, which is quickly followed by a hint of melon, tinned apricots and pears. A drop of honey too. Then red apples and a pinch of ginger in the background. Later I also get a faint floral note.
    • Taste
      Red apples. Honey. Again some tropical fruits such as pineapple and melon. Milk chocolate and vanilla. A hint of ginger, cinnamon and black pepper.

    Color: beautiful gold, golden reflections.

    Nose: a well integrated alcohol, a fruity nose, exotic fruit. Spice, a little cinnamon. This is a delicious and pleasant nose.

    Palate: we are of course on the exotic fruit, melon, mango. Pepper.

    Overall: long, on cereals, wet grass and exoticism, a touch of chocolate.

    Comments: for a young whisky, it is quite honorable.

    Fruity, rich and full of flavour, Bimber again shows why it is leading the new wave of craft whisky distilleries.
    • Nose
      Somewhat floral and pretty fruity with some green beans as well. Apple sauce comes to mind, as well as apricots, passion fruit and some sweet, dark honey notes. Light perfume-y touches also. Not extremely expressive.
    • Taste
      An oily, thick mouthfeel. Fantastic fruity arrival with plenty of citrus, tinned pineapple and mangoes, but also chalk and white pepper. There's some definite similarities with the cask that was bottled for the Netherlands by Bresser & Timmer. Water bring out some mustier notes, as well as melon.
    • Finish
      Lingering orchard fruits, cinnamon and some pepper as well. A touch of galia melon again.

    Festival tasting format (06.06.2021):
    Pine, chamomile, pectin, mulberry. It tastes like a pile of oak, strong, sour compote.
