Bimber Distillery has released “Apogee XII” – a 12-year-old, premium “pure malt” whisky created as a celebration of the fine art of blending, that has been elevated through an additional maturation in ex-Bimber casks. Created as a celebration of the fine art of blending.
Apogee XII whisky offers flawless balance with additional layers of flavour and complexity derived from the vivid, fruit and spice-forward character of the ex-Bimber casks.
Bimber sourced some of the finest single malt whiskies from both the Highlands and Speyside. These whiskies were matured for a minimum of 12 years before being enhanced further through skilful, meticulous blending and an additional maturation in ex-bourbon casks that were previously used to age Bimber’s award-winning London single malt whisky.
Bottled at 46.3% ABV with no colouring or chill-filtration, Apogee is presented in a striking, custom glass bottle – which features a tactile, hammered glass that has been fashioned to imitate the surfaces of Bimber’s small copper pot stills.
NOSE: Spiced pears and oven-baked apricot flans are sweetened by candy necklaces and scented with rosewater, nutmeg and powdered ginger
PALATE: Syrupy orchard and stone fruits provide a bright and fresh mouthfeel supported by lightly charred oak, gentle white pepper and cooling mint
FINISH: Lingering ripe and sweet fruits alongside sympathetic, aromatic oak
