Bruichladdich 21 years old, Cuvee 640, Eroica / 46% – In 2012 Bruichladdich Distillery released a trio of extraordinary bottlings under the Cuvee range. They were 21 years old expressions, finished in wine barrels. Cuvee 640 Eroica spent 21 years in white American oak casks then was transferred to French Limousin oak brandy casks. This expression is subtitled after a line from Nietzsche’s “Thus Spoke Zarathustra” – Oh Mensch! Gieb Acht! (written with a typo [Gib not Gieb]) what translates to “Oh man! Take heed!”. Eroica may also refer to Beethoven’s 3rd “Heroic” Symphony.
Nose: rich and fruity, peaches, apricots, mango, plums, apple pie and distant mineral note.
Palate: rich and smooth, creamy maltiness, apples, citrus, almonds, bitter chocolate and delicate oak tannins.
Finish: long and fruity with subtle herbal and spicy notes.
