Whisky Review #120 Glenlivet ‘Nadurra’ 16yo 48%

pdt__glenlivet_nadurra_16yo__1_litre_738_1Allright, so this is the travel retail version of Nadurra(‘Natural’ in gaelic) from Glenlivet distillery. The only difference between this one and the original one is that this one is not bottled at cask strength.

Bottled: +/-2013

On the nose: Honey, beeswax/scented candles and vanilla. Loads of bourbon notes here! Very sweet, but with a crisp, green zing to it. Gooseberries maybe.. Water brings out fresh lemon juice.

On the palate: Sweet and juicy, crisp mouthfeel. Honey, tropical fruits and floral notes, very ‘summery’! More grass with water and more balance in general. Sweet honey in the finish with a hint of green apples.

This one improves massively with water and time, it’s crazy. It starts off as a honey and vodka cocktail, but given time, it grows into a sweet symphony of green summer fruits and zezty, citric honey.

87/100 points
