  1. whiskydramo scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    It was a lot worse when I first tasted it and the whisky was clearly not ready.

      Smoked plums, Chinese bayberries, grape jam, wood polish, hard candies and a hint of coconut fibre. Then cloves, pencil shavings, soda and balsamic vinegar. It's a bit pungent and the aromas were not easily observable at first, but got better after two weeks with tangerines.

      Grapes and raspberries, both were diluted. My mouth was quickly filled with spicy white pepper powder, hay and pencil shavings. Cough syrup and nutmeg formed the even worse finishing part of the tasting. Hami melon rind and orange pith were added in the second tasting.

      Tangerines again in a nice way. Still getting pencil shavings with minerals and woody bitterness, both improved in the second tasting. Finally turned into wafers, charcoal and some cough syrup.

    Typical Bimber in a good way. Tropical fruits, pineapples. A touch of fresh cut grass. All refreshing and exciting.

    Whiskyfun:
    Bimber 3 yo 2017/2020 (57.9%, Thompson Bros., England, 1st fill barrel, cask #171, 250 bottles) Four stars and a half
    We’ll keep this short. Neither Dornoch nor Bimber need no further buzz. Colour: deep gold. Nose: Spanish melon and orange liqueurs. Perhaps a little ripe guava too. With water: manzana liqueur and guava indeed. Apricots and mirabelles. Apricots and mirabelles always work, just ask Balvenie. Mouth (neat): insane delicately spiced-up fruit mix. Slices of dried apples, coconut, pineapples, with a touch of liquorice wood. Immaculate combination and more proof that bourbon wood works best (perhaps just not with bourbon, ha-ha). With water: immaculate quince jelly and very soft and very fresh ginger cookies. Finish: rather long, a tad spicier, that is to say more on, well, ginger cookies. Pepper. Peach and apricot compote. Comments: the Kavalan of the West, except that Bimber no do large-batch very average whiskies in addition to their brilliant single casks or small batches, do they? Excellent Bimber once again.
    SGP:651 - 89 points.
