BIMBER 2018 Ex-Pedro Ximenez Antipodes 57.8%
The young London distillery Bimber offers us a limited edition for the Antipodes series. First aged in an ex-bourbon cask then matured for nine months in ex-sherry cask, this single malt offers us notes of cocoa, tangerine, dried fruits and sweet spices (cinnamon, cumin).
Limited edition of 309 bottles.
Nose: Rich, concentrated. Delicately apricot and floral (pink, thought, geranium)
Mouth: Lively, ample. Malty, preciously oaky, roasted (coffee) and fruity (tangerine), the palate is also energized by medicinal notes (mustard seed, iodine) and camphor. Deliciously powdered (cocoa, curry), the middle of the mouth evokes a quince or apple jelly. At the end of the mouth, dried fruits in abundance (almond, cashew nuts, hazelnut) rub with sweet spices (cinnamon, cumin).
Finish: Long, silky. With a perfect sweet/salty balance, the beginning of the finish stretches on flavors of toast, honey all flowers and Corinth grapes. Covered by a thin layer of salted butter caramel, the aftertaste is also extremely peppery.
Based in the suburbs of London, already famous for its young age, this microbrewery has set itself the mission of producing high quality single malt whisky. With the use of malted barley from the oldest malting plant in Great Britain WARMISTER, fermentations that last a week, slow distillation, and a precise selection of aging barrels, make this single malt from Bimber a success.
