700ml // 46.0% ABV
This is one of a trio of superb 21 Year Old single malts from Bruichladdich – the Cuvee range. Cuvee 382 “La Berenice” was matured in American oak casks before a finish in sweet Barsac and Sauternes casks. Very good indeed.
Nose: Rich, fruity nose with notes of guava and overripe grape. Hints of cantaloupe, pear juice and boiled sweets. Hints of peppermint and honey.
Palate: Honeyed palate entry with notes of biscuity malt, toffee apples, allspice and toasted oak. Lovely fruit at the core, with dessert wine. Oily.
Finish: Rich, long finish, sweet and fruity.
