- Whisky Tasting: Bruichladdich Cuvee A https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pq2xGMinCbc
- As so often, the Laddie spirit harmonizes well with the Weinfasslagerung, but it lacks something of complexity and character
Mild and weinarting with notes of orange marmalade and slightly acidic touch. A hint of smoke. Later raspberries and redcurrants.
Sauerer fruit compote with a slight sharpness. Little complex ... The sweetness fights against the acid
Long and dry
- Nose big vanilla, oak, caramel. Attack on a slight tip of chemical strawberry that fades quickly. Too much alcohol, a little sugar and lots of tannin. Final quite short on alcohol. Ok, well, bad q / p.
- Extremely strange. Unique, certainly, but not especially a whisky.
My first whisky aged in wine casks. I am a bit worried...
The nose is quite classic, on wood, vanilla, caramel. A little nuts and herbs. Alcohol is a little dissociated.
Hulà ... what-what-it ... Hyper weird, strange, indescribable. After long hesitations: chewing gum, chemical flavors (strawberry), lots of wood, sugar and acidity.
Still a lot of wood and a set that dries the palate slightly.
Sensations of butterscotch, vanilla.
In the mouth feel is full, orange marmalade, dark chocolate, cherry liqueur.
Ending with a sharp astringency that gives structure accompanied by a mix of red pepper, cocoa and wood.
- It is a series of six assorted variations on a theme?: Namely Bruichladdich 16 years, aged in Bourbon barrels that have contained, and then evolved? in woods that have previously hosted the largest Chateau Bordeaux (Pomerol, Sauternes, Paulliac, Margaux, Lafleur, Lafite Rothschild). Each refinement in a subtly different way influence the distillate.
