Bimber Distillery Tasting Notes

Posted: May 31, 2016 in English, Vodka, White Spirits

Bimber Oak Aged Vodka 42%

Wheat based spirit. Quadruple distilled.

Tasted: Apr 2016

The nose is quite oily with dried fruit and taught vanilla. Gently spiced with toffee and a light herbal graininess.

The palate is soft and oily. Quite spicy with a touch of botanicals and toffee’d oak. Very flavourful and well balanced with an almost grain whisky character. Long, spicy and vanilla’d with camphor and cardamom notes and a slightlky smoky after-taste. It comes across as a sort of grain whisky/ oak aged gin hybrid!

Bimber Blackberry Vodka 40%

Tasted: Apr 2016

A nose of herbal spirit, straw and earthy, relatively subtle, natural blackberry. Hints of clove and spice (added?).

Slightly syrup coated blackcurrant on the palate with a touch of spice. More fruit focused with straw and earth. Quite a mentholated, herbal finish and a dry, spicy after-taste.

Bimber Summer Fruit Vodka 40%

Strawberry, Blackberry, Blueberry, Redcurrant, Raspberry

Tasted: Apr 2016

All the summer fruit aromas are there along with s alight syrup coating. Hints of vanilla, straw and earth follow.

The palate is pure and fruity. Quite sweet with a light syrup coating. There’s not much spirit character as the fruit dominates although a touch of earth and straw comes through. Spicy finish.

Bimber Blackcurrant Vodka 40%

Tasted: Apr 2016

Pure, intense aromas of blackcurrant. Lightly smoked with a touch of syrup, straw and earth.

The palate is sweet-ish with blackcurrant, smoke, earth and some drying tannins. Intensely dry and slightly bitter finish, but the syrup attempts to balance. Again very natural.
