  • Intro:

    Distilled by Bruichladdich on Islay and aged for 21 years, this Cuvee is the third of a set. Alongside a Bordeaux Sauternes and a Cognac cask finished release, this particular bottling - the 407 - is matured in PX casks.

  • Nose:

    Rich dark cherry, blackberry, sherry and currant. Supple and elegant on the nose with all of the delicious notes we'd expect an unpeated malt and PX sherry to arrive with.

  • Taste:

    Dark and brooding, extremely syrupy. Faint ash. The masterclass of sherry. Rich mouthfeel, sweet and fruity but not too sweet and fruity. Lots going on here with a slight influence from the Islay aging that brings balance to the malt, sweet wine and faint ash.

  • Finish:

    Long finish that takes forever to dissipate. More malt than wine on the finish, with blackberry, currant, stewed fruits and toffee supporting the show.

  • Overall:

    An amazing bottling that easily stands as my favorite of the trio of Laddie Cuvee's. This is a sherry master class.

  • Score:

    9
