Bruichladdich16BH-200One of six in a 2008 release by Bruichladdich of "First Growth" inspired whiskies, Cuvee D is matured in Bourbon barrels with "Additional Cask Evolution (ACE)" in Chateaux Haut-Brion barriques.  These luxury Bordeauxs are a mix of predominately Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon wines, lending a superb aroma and elegance to this scotch.

SUGGESTED CHOCOLATE PAIRING

Chuao - Framboise, Miel (Nut & Honeylicious) & Melao (Salt Butter Caramel)

The complex flavors of this dram make it supremely easy to match to the Chuao bonbons.  Framboise hits the berry fruit flavors dead on and introduces a wonderful new texture to the pairing with its raspberry fruite de pate.  Miel's notes of honey nuttiness seem to bring out the otherwise understated  maltiness of this whisky.  Melao with its butter salt caramel, plays off the clear bourbon influence of this scotch.  We'll leave the decision to you. Click here to purchase chocolates.

 

SUGGESTED CIGAR PAIRING

La Aurora Serie 107 Anniversario

An elegant malt for an elegant cigar. The La Aurora is a medium strength, complex cigar. What's really noticeable about this combination is the creamy honey/molasses flavors in both malt and leaf. Click here to purchase.
