Bimber Cask #250 / 1 Oloroso Finish English Whisky Review

Here we go! Bimber Whisky #3 that we reviewed during one of our epic recording sessions…

This Bimber expression is a USA exclusive release that was limited to 330 bottles. It clocks in at 58.2% (Yowza! Almost whisky with a 6!) and was hand picked by our friends at Glass Revolution Imports.

Here are few words about this whisky taken directly from the Glass Revolution website:

Initially matured in ex-bourbon barrel before being finished in an outstanding single oloroso cask.

The journey begins at our single farm, where 100% of our barley is grown. It is then traditionally floor malted, hand-mashed and fermented slowly for seven days in our wooden washbacks that were hand-made at our own cooperage. We use direct fire to heat our small copper pot stills, and mature our spirit in hand-selected casks. Finally, we bottle our whisky onsite at our distillery.

It sounds like a great deal of love and care goes into a Bimber release. Given our experiences with the first two expressions that we tried, it definitely comes through in the whisky. To find out if the third is as good, or even better, than the first two (a trifecta of Bimber whiskies perhaps?!?), click play on the following video:
