Whisky Reviews for Bruichladdich Cuvée 407

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

  1. 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.

  2. didi1893 scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    I like it very much. The nose, the mouth and the finish harmonize beautifully. An intense sherry's appetite for more power!
    • Nose
      Pleasant fruits, dates ?, sweetness with light chocolate. Subtle wood note with finely integrated alcohol.
    • Taste
      Dark fruits with strong wood influence. Dark chocolate with a touch of coffee. Amazing creamy in the mouth.
    • Finish
      Laaaanger, powerful and powerful finish with bitter but also sweetish woody taste. Again dark chocolate.

  3. 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.

  4. 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

  5. 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

  6. Xaver did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Very cool. The 46% fit perfectly!
    • Nose
      Colour:
      Dark amber

      Nose:
      A really fat leather note comes first. Followed by a flag pipe smoke. Has something of an old leather chair in a cigar lounge. Then comes some furniture polish and a thick, dark red wine gravy. This is followed by dried fruits. In the form of raisins, mixed wild berries and sour orange. Gingerbread spices and dark chocolate.
      With some time in the glass, it gets a little more acidic. And the berries are now going more in the fermented direction. The spices are now also stronger and slightly dirtier. Lovage comes to it. A crazy nose. Class…
    • Taste
      Spicy, dark onset. Slightly peppery with roasted aromas. Pickled cherries. Baked apple with cinnamon. Zimtzwetschgen. Oranges, leather, sour gummy bears. A thrust of ordinary bitterness. Espresso. Fermented lemon and dark chocolate.
    • Finish
      Long and spicy. Creamy fruit sweetness before it ends with neat bitterness.

  7. Mr.Wong scored this whisky 87 points Member Senior

    I expected a stronger PX taste as this whisky has been hyped a lot. It is delicious however it doesn’t give you the strong PX taste that you would expect.
    • Nose
      Winey sweet fruits, a hint of chocolate, citrus fruits like oranges, more wine and only slight PX notes
    • Taste
      Sweet PX but not strong, woody
    • Finish
      Slight dark chocolate

    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).
