Bimber Oloroso Finish USA Edition, 58.2%

Price: $165 Issue: Summer 2022 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

The nose is nutty, with marzipan, crystalized sugar, floral notes, dry spices, fallen leaves, malt, potpourri, and fresh oak. It's thick, syrupy, and sweet on the palate, with strawberry, golden syrup, baked apricot, almond, clove, pepper, and flambéed banana, with buttery toffee and Quaker oats developing later. This whisky is all about the mouthfeel, with the oloroso finish adding sherry-kissed finesse to an otherwise impressive distillery character. (342 bottles)
