The second-ever single malt whisky released by west London's Bimber distillery has been matured in re-charred American oak casks. The barrels were hand charred by Bimber's own cooper in London, and laid down in 2016, creating a sweet, rich whisky with aromas of orchard fruits, roasted pineapple, honey, nougat and oak, as well as hints of cinnamon and pepper. The palate offers notes of red apples, juicy pears, banana bread, pineapple juice, caramel, butterscotch and vanilla pods, on top of a layer of pepper, ginger and charred oak.Tasting Notes (1)

Creamy porridge with milk chocolate shavings, sultanas and brown sugar – the breakfast I wanted as a kid but was never allowed. Pine and freshly sawn oak notes build, with dry cinnamon spiciness following. Sweet candied peel and mint choc chips hide at the back.
Caramel, toffee and spicy cinnamon lead into a milk-chocolate sauce centre. Creamy sweetness builds along with the oaky spice and apple notes develop – first skin and then toffee-tinged tarte tatin – with sultanas and raisins following. Creamy coffee notes fill in the gaps – Starbucks caramel macchiato, light on the caramel.
Spicy stewed apple with a handful of sultanas, slowly fading to leave caramel sauce, oaky spice and cocoa.
Quite a different dram to the first release, but still with a solid vein of fruit running through the centre. This time, the grain is up front, creating a creamy and chocolatey character that complements the gentle fruit and oaky spice.
Wow, only 3 years old. This is a seriously good whisky, in my opinion. I’m getting savoury and sweet, some umami and the thick treacle is a pleasure. None of the ‘rawness’ you get in some young whiskies, considering the high ABV. Absolutely drinkable as it comes. I’ll be stocking up with these! Highly Recommended
Really good. Fresh and fruity - am finding it quite comparable with Glen Grant 10. Already thinking about getting a second bottle. Can't wait to try their next release.
A floral explosion of epic proportions!! I’m a scotch die hard but I’m down to mid label on the 3 week old London labor of love. I bought another bottle for the “me only no sharing” cabinet. It’s that good!!
Incredibly good single malt whisky from new London distillery. So fruity and smooth! I am looking forward to next release.
Trigger finger at the ready and only 5000 bottles, I really fancy a Bimber, from all I've heard about them they seem to be doing things the right way (ncf no e150, cask strength) and I was about to buy one of these till I saw your flavour profile. I'm sure it will be quite lovely but £65 is a bit steep for a three year old offering typically young whisky flavours, flavours that abound in whisky world at the moment and not particularly my bag. Thank you very much whisky exchange for the transparency. I will save my sheks for a different Bimber with my favourite flavours in due course. Good work all round. Cheers.
