The Glenlivet Nadurra Peated Cask Finish Single Malt Scotch Whiskey is the latest expression in the Nadurra family that boldly draws its inspiration from The Glenlivet's historic whiskey-making traditions. In this tradition, peat smoke was used to dry the malted barley, lending a smoky flavor to the whiskey.
Nadurra is the Gaelic word for natural, a fitting title for this non-chill-filtered; cask strength whiskey crafted using very rares casks. Unlike its two siblings, the Nadurra Peated Whiskey is finished in casks that previously held heavily peated Scotch whiskey, giving a gently smoky twist to the classic, smooth and fruity house style that The Glenlivet is known for.
The Glenlivet Nadurra Peated Whiskey Cask Finish has been finished in heavily peated casks. It has an amber-gold color. It offers a fruity flavor with a gentle, aromatic smokiness. The nose provides red apples, citrus zest, and fragrant smoke. The palate has tangy marmalade, creamy vanilla toffee, and toasted smokiness. The finish is complex, lengthy, and spicy with layers of subtle smoke. It has bottled at 61.5% alcohol by volume and best to savor with fresh oysters. Enjoy!
