Maybe if it's quiet Friday night...
Glenlivet 12y: the nose initially makes me think of nice fresh juicy white wine, fairly full-bodied. Then the malt sneaks in from the back. The slight alchohol hints on the nose again remind me of a juicy white wine, nice.
Very nice round smooth in the mouth, fresh and refreshing, and not nearly as sweet as I remember. This is one of those whiskies to have stocked in the house to easily enjoy frequently.
A bit less of the brilliant yellow color from the previous 12 and 15 years. The 18y goes towards a brilliant copper. Malty and well toasted wheat bread on the nose. Similar to the previous two. My congestion and sickness I've been fighting the past week isn't allowing me to get the small nuances out of these unfortunately, but I am truly enjoying them all, good drinking whiskies! Wow, this 18y is good! A slight slight spicy tingle on the finish, not peppery at all like Talisker is, but still a little spicy. Nadurra up next!!
Let's go back to the nose. Wow, nice stuff! Finally, I can taste what so many are raving about.
Isn't it great?
I just got a botttle of the Cask Strength as well - -WOW
Remeber Nadurra is a batch product so in the same as A'bunadh will change slightly in strength from batch to batch. Its great news to hear(read) how many of you are enjoying Nadurra, the response not just here but in all the markets you get it in have been very positive.
Delighted that you enjoyed the samples, any questions please let me know.
I concur with his thoughts in it being akin to a good Lowlander such as Rosebank or Bladnoch - the phrase 'lemon sherbet' sums it up for me.
Anyway, the question I have is - is this 'lowlander' profile something the Nadurra is aiming for?
Thanks for your insights on this thread.
Is the only difference between the Nadurra Duty Free 48% and the Nadurra Cask Strength, the addition of water?
Its an interesting comment with regard to a goo lowlander but is something have never considered. The fact that we are using 100% first fill American lets the classic Glenlivet fruitness come through better than it would have with European.
The "lemon sherbet" is spot on as far as I am concerned especially on the finish for me, a lovely gentle fizziness on the back of the tongue. Lemon Sherbet gives the fruitiness of Glenlivet and the vanillin induced sweetmess of american wood.
You are correct, the wood policy etc is exactly the same for both, just cut to 48% for Travel Retail.
Thank you again for your interest.
