Glenlivet Nadurra Oloroso Cask
Single Malt Scotch
Glenlivet is typically the whisky you get on an airplane if you ask for a scotch. The Glenlivet is a distillery based on Ballindalloch in Moray, Scotland about 100 km from Aberdeen and has been in business since 1824 with their whisky expressions having won numerous international awards. Nàdurra is Gaelic for ‘natural’ and indicates that no chill filtration or colour has been added. Each expression in The Glenlivet Nàdurra range is crafted in small batches using traditional production methods and is matured exclusively in a different cask-type, showcasing the versatility and flawless quality of The Glenlivet spirit. The whisky is aged for at least 16 years in first fill, Olorosso Sherry barrels from Jerez, Spain and then bottled at cask strength. The batch you are drinking was bottled at 60% ABV in Jun
2015 (hence the Batch 615). If you’re looking for a good Speyside whisky without the heavy wine or sherry finish, the Nadurra is the one to go for. It’s also great as a gentle introduction to cask-strength whiskies –
being a lot easier to handle for those new to cask strength than something like the Aberlour A’bunadh.
The colour is a bright gold with dried fruit aromas of raisins and apricots complemented with gentle notes of cinnamon and liquorice.
On the palate hints of rich dark chocolate and spicy orange marmalade add depth to its smooth creaminess.
A long, slightly dry, spicy finish. Some sweet maltiness remains.
