23 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.78 points

  1. Gloin scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    A liquid seduction that entices you to drink more and more. Soft and lovely, maybe too sweet for some. Not me, I like to be seduced.
    • Nose
      sweet sherry, raspberries and blackberries, in the background sawdust, caramel, very pleasing, no alcohol, little oak spice, a citrus note is also present, orange peel, sweet raisins, a pinch of cinnamon, the raspberries and blackberries from the beginning have disappeared and make plums room
    • Taste
      velvety soft and cool, it lays on the tongue, seductive sweet, sweet cherries, a little orange and milk chocolate, now oak, but hardly bitter
    • Finish
      again chocolate, but with a little higher cocoa content now, delicate bitterness, the memory of raisins, unfortunately not as long as I wish. It remains a pleasant tingling on the tongue.

  2. ASWhisky scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    I enjoy it only as afternoon whisky in late autumn and winter with stuffed gingerbread or hot summer evenings instead of dessert, yummy
    • Nose
      Spanish sherry, plum-musk homemade, cherries on the tree in sunshine, fat malt and wood
    • Taste
      more sherry than whisky, then more malt and whisky, spicy and sweet, plump, yellow cherries, hints of orange and chocolate
    • Finish
      Memory of Spanish sherry with arctic whisky notes, full and full, oak and sweet malt

  4. vredensever scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    The aroma is thick, spicy, sweet: treacle, gum, honey, obvious wine notes, berries, sweet sherry (where without it?), Mountains of spices, nuts, dried fruits in variety, sea and minerality (iodine, stones). The taste is sharp, sweet with bitter taste: spices, wine sherry notes, vegetable oil, dried fruits, berries, astringent oak. Aftertaste of average duration. Continuation of taste, but drier. Spices in abundance, sherry, dried fruits. In development, oil and astringent oak. Conclusion . A good sherry mole. The telly. A bright, dense fragrance precedes a simpler taste. Without enthusiasm, but overall, very good and tasty. Score 88 (n23t22f21b22).

  5. ErzWhisky scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      sweet, dark berries; a lot of sweet sherry and sherry barrel; full; oranges
    • Taste
      sweet sherry with a slightly sour note; red grapes
    • Finish
      sweet; some wood; nice heat; light spices; medium to long

  6. Koalafant scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Krasse's spectrum of flavors, which is always changing. The bitterness darkens the impression, but overall a first-class drop.
    90/100
    • Nose
      The Vvoll Sherry palette bombards the olfactory organ: orange peel, dates, figs and herbs. Character play between sweetness and dryness. Opens after some time and then reveals even subtle spice notes.
    • Taste
      Syrup-like sweetness of plums and raisins paired with thyme, cloves and cinnamon. In the second sip quite bitter.
    • Finish
      Long and interestingly rather dry.

  8. KjellRolandson scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    After this nice weekend I want to try a special whisky today.
    From my buddy I have received a sample of Cuvee.
    So off it into the glass. Already at the first smell I have orange and berries in my nose. In my mind a picture of sliced ​​oranges garnished with raspberries and honey dribbled over them.
    The warmer the whisky becomes, the stronger the cream note becomes. Again and again comes a surge of raspberry or blackberry. Over time, a slight touch of freshness develops. So let's try the, until now, really great stuff.
    It is soft in the mouth and lays soft on the tongue, like a piece of dark chocolate.
    Orange is back, with a slight touch of wood. In the finish I also have the taste of dark chocolate or cocoa in the mouth, followed by a subtle, bitter note. In the mouth and in the cheek he stays comfortable.
    In the area of ​​the Lippenbändchen it tingles really nice.
    I find the combination of fruit, chocolate, woodiness and tingling on the tongue fascinating.
    I really like the Cuvee. A very special Bruichladdich.
    I would immediately buy a bottle, unfortunately, the Bruichladdich Cuvee, or the Cuvee series, for the most part only to be found among collectors. The Bruichladdich Cuvee 407 gets from me 90 out of 100 points.

  9. JohannesB scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    In a word: wonderful. Strong sherry influence plays with the still existing Brennereicharakter and the bourbon notes from the first ripening. All facets are well coordinated and harmonize in perfection. By far the best among the three Cuvee's 382, ​​407 and 640.
    • Nose
      Strong and finely tuned sherry aromas rise immediately after pouring out of the glass. Dark cherries in chocolate, rum raisins, dates, caramel pudding and some dry wood dust. A delicate spiciness of cinnamon, cardamom and an association with distant wood smoke framed the Pedro Ximenez sherry.
    • Taste
      Very oily and soft - but spicy on the tongue at the same time. Very sweet with plums, raisins, cherries, dark chocolate and roasted hazelnuts. Far away, the bourbon barrel shimmers with caramel, vanilla and a touch of exoticism. Above all are pleasantly strong tannins from the oak, comparable to a medium Italian espresso.
    • Finish
      The medium-long finish is initially characterized by sweet grapes, cherries and cane sugar. However, bitter chocolate, burnt espresso and a little pepper quickly break through. The finish is clearly marked by European oak, but this is not too intrusive or too rash. Well rounded

  10. GlenSikkes did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Tasting Notes by Jim McEwan, head distiller;

    Character: Round and well balanced, it is tranquillity in a glass. The texture is warm and delectable, captivating the taste buds with the richness of its flavours. Paradisal.

    Colour: soleo sunshine

    Nose: Stunning opening on notes of sultanas dusted with dark chocolate powder and this develops further as the Spanish influence takes centre stage bringing sunshine & life to the party with a fruit tapas of prune, dates, dark raisins & black cherries dipped in marmelade. PX is performing like a Spanish dancer, full of pride and passion, confident as the rising aromatics dazzle the senses.

    Palate: Slowly the freshness of an Islay breeze arrives & mingles with the dark fruits creating air pockets that allow you to experience an incredible coming together of cultures. The citrus zestiness of Islay's storm lashed moorland character invites the Spanish party onto a new stage and it becomes an olfactory orchestration which opens the curtain for the softer green fruits of distillation. The coconut-vanilla toffee flavours of Kentucky plus the crisp sweetness of Scottisch barley together arouse the soul & calm the fears. Three nations given time together have provided a spirit that leaves no Single Malt desires unfulfilled.Finish: After twenty-one years in two different oaks the mellowness of the spirit is spectacular. It's a classic old style Bruichladdich: handmade,
    Islay matured and in a wonderful twist the Sherry emerges leaving you with that feeling of having experienced something unforgettable and rare.Mood: A whisky for when the air is redolent of old leather,
    Cuban tobacco and cedar wood.
