Review by Bimber

Nose

Orchard fruits and spit-roasted pineapple chunks are sweetened with honey, nougat and cookie dough. Oak smoke and wood char float across the nose, whilst cinnamon and pepper spicing offers an enlivening intensity.

Palate

Red apples and ripe pears sit alongside banana bread and pineapple juice. Caramel, butterscotch sauce and split vanilla pods combine with layered pepper and ginger spicing and a characterful note of charred oak.

Finish

Enduring wood smoke supports beautifully fading fruits and perfectly balanced oaky dryness.

Note

Following our inaugural release Bimber The First were proud to announce the launch of our second single malt whisky Re-charred Oak Casks.

This new small batch release is limited to 5,000 individually numbered bottles and has been crafted from a vatting of our heavily charred American oak casks laid down in 2016.

The selection of American Oak casks were hand charred by Bimbers on-site coopers to level #4 char also known as Alligator char. The deep charring process caramelised the wood sugars, adds a layer of filtering carbon to the surface of the barrel and influences the whisky by imparting distinctively sweet, rich smooth and fruity flavours into the maturing spirit.
