Bimber Re-Charred Oak Casks
Bimber // England
Bimber Re-charred Oak Casks is the second single malt from this London-based small craft producer. Released in November 2019, this whisky is limited to 5,000 bottles. It has matured in heavily charred American oak casks laid down in 2016. These casks were hand-charred by Bimber's onsite coopers to a level #4 char — also known as 'alligator char'.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.

"An initial sweet, tinned pineapple note with vanilla custard, candy hearts and a whisper of mocha tart and cinnamon. It has a buttery quality to it. The palate’s signature is much more oak-y than the nose suggests. Love the oiliness of the spirit. The pineapple makes an encore and is accompanied by fudge, caramel and even a hint of lime juice. A proper second album from Bimber Distillery."
