What they say:

The Nadurra series is Glenlivet’s range of 16 year old single malt Scotch whiskies, which have been matured in ex-bourbon casks and then bottled at cask strength with no chill-filtration. A fantastic small batch expression. This edition comes from batch 0813Y, bottled in 2013.

What I say:

The Glenlivet Nadurra, we first sampled this during our visit to The Glenlivet Distillery back in 2011 or 2012, subsequently this series has become a little bit of a hit amongst Glenlivet fans. This particular bottling carries the 16 year old age-statement, whilst many of the other batches have been NAS and focussed more on their cask maturation e.g. sherry or the latest incarnation – peated cask matured.

Warming, spiced toffee and gingerbread, Jamaican ginger cake, treacle toffee, oak wood, almost savoury and herbal, vanilla, marzipan, frangipane tart

Quite spicy but in a really good way. Reminded me of gingerbread and cake. In fact a multitude of sweets and desserts appear in my tasting notes as I chewed my way through the sweetness in this expression. The proof is obviously in the pudding with this whisky!

Score: 85/100
