Interesting fact… Bruichladdich First Growth Cuvée E: Sauternes (Chateau D'Yquem) 16 Year Old whisky spells its name whisky as it originates in Scotland. Had it been produced in America its name would be Bruichladdich First Growth Cuvée E: Sauternes (Chateau D'Yquem) 16 Year Old whiskey, instead of whisky.
Nose: Fresh and sweet. Estery fruit, plum jam, sugary. Grapey.
Palate: Rich, lovely sweetness, tropical fruit, supple spice, grapes stricken with the botrytis.
Finish: Long, slightly dry, oaked.
This is the mitological nectar of the gods. Just sip it savouring every aroma you can.
I expected some sweet or deep flavor notes given the aging barrels, but all I found was a bitter grappa-esque sourness that came and went quick. A terrible dram.
as i started nosing it, i slowly moved my nose away and for a split second all i could smell was sauternes!, it smells so sweet, fresh, honeysuckle, ripe summer fruits, the sauternes really stands out, especially if your a sauternes lover like me,
it tastes amazing, i love bruichladdich and here they have really made something special, the sauternes again stands out, especially on the finish, you get the almost dryness from sauternes on the back of your tongue and it last a long time, taste of fresh fruit, tropical fruit, english plums in season, nice ripe and sweet,
wonderful stuff and ill be buying another bottle!,
