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.
