  1. Whiskylifestyle scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Green apples. Apricots. Crème brûlée. Followed by fresh lemons and gooseberries. A hint of marzipan and butter. A little bit of coconut too. Later also acacia honey and a floral note. Very nice!
    • Taste
      A lovely oily texture. Unripe pears. Vanilla, caramel fudge and a hint of toffee. But also those sweet banana candies. Then acacia honey. Pink grapefruit and lemons in the background Quickly followed by cappuccino and the tiniest touch of oak.
    • Finish
      Mid-long to long. Honey, vanilla and apricots again.

      Vanilla, mirabelle plums, smells like a fruit schnapps, a strange musty note
    • Taste
      75 75
      Feathered mirabelle plums, very delicate orange, a little vanilla, slightly metallic
    • Finish
      74 74
      Short and unspectacular

    I wasn’t sure. Didn’t know what to expect. But what a pleasant surprise. Very fine, complex whisky. Well matured and without any off notes. No sulphur. Absolutely flawless. With a few drops of water you can be hooked forever. A great drum. Bimber, well done! Bring some more?

    1581) Bimber, Small Batch 02/2020, Ex Bourbon Oak Casks

    Bimber - Moonshine in Polish.
    • Nose
      N- Another young distillery, crossed the border to the capitol London. Banana, peaches with floral, you get this gingery spicy heat derives consistently that teases you nasal with quintessential bourbon cask characteristic. Underlying dried dates, rum notes, before citrus lemon developed along with nutmeg and grassy honey. (88/22)
    • Taste
      P- A carpenter workshop? Oak-y, subtle sweetness with bold wood resin and doses of floral. Wood shaves with dusts of earthy spices and young fruits. Hint of coconut and stiff inevitably, but acceptable as this is indeed still young. (86/20)
    • Finish
      F- Long, slightly underwhelm palate follow by full finishing, finely concocted pickle brine. Solid, crisp with a touch of bitterness. (87/21)

      B/B- 87/21 At barely legal age, a very nice Single Malt that even bottled at this high strength, the distillates still appeared soft and velvet. And is unpeated.

      Weighted Rate- 84pt

  6. The_Osprey scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Bimber ex bourbon cask batch 2, 52.2%.

    Pale yellow.

    Aroma is estery fruits, lemon boiled sweets, lemon sherbets, pineapple cube sweets, shandy.

    Taste is very light indeed at the ABV, some shandy and more pineapple cube sweets. White pepper linger. Good whisky. Doesn't taste young at all. Good fruity estery fresh spirit. Very good. 3.5/84
