Stats – 46% alcohol, aged in sauternes casks from Chateau D’Yquem (Cuvée E)
Price – $80
Color – Golden
Nose – Sweet baked apples, white grapes, and a little grassy.
Palate – Part of Bruichladdich’s “First Growth” series of experimenting with wine cask aging, Cuvée E casks come from the French sauternes estate Chateau D’Yquem. Sweet and rich with just a hint of spice. Almost no sense of iodine or peat, belying its Islay heritage. Some citrus tang maybe a bit waxy. Floral without being to light or airy, like a richer Dalwhinnie.
