Strongest of the Glenlivet's Selection
A fine dram!
I say my title based on my experience with the 12, 15, 16 (Nadurra), and 18 year old aged scotches. I have yet to try the 21 and will probably never be able to afford the 25 year old as a teacher. However, the 16 is a great one! The 15 has been my favorite as I have been going up in years since starting the Glenlivet selection in August when I was 21 in the USA (legal drinking age). The 16 reminds me a lot of the 12 but MUCH stronger with subtle differences in the nose, palette, and finish. the nose is much stronger, I would not recommend to beginners as it does have a slight burn to it. The palette is also stronger and honestly harder to distinguish as far as flavors. Upon my first dram, I had trouble evaluating the tastes I had. However, the finish is soooo much longer than the 12 or the 15. It lasts a long time which I personally enjoy as I am more a drink and feel the finish of alcohol type person. I would recommend this scotch to anyone who enjoys a strong beverage. Overall, I feel like this is a decently priced scotch that is very well aged (mine at the VA ABC store was from 2010)
Enjoy your dram,

If you've ever tasted a green grape with a slightly browned stem still attached, or even detached but you still imagine that slightly stemmy (not woody) flavour, maybe from the brownish skin right up where the stem attaches, this is exactly what the Nadurra tastes like. Probably sounds horrible to the average bloke but really it's quite beautiful and natural compared to a lot of others I've tried. Thumbs up from me.

Compared to the 18yo, this is a bit harsher (or peppier?), even watered down, but only a *bit*. The basic flavors are the same, maybe *slightly* less wood than the 18, but very unmistakably Glenlivet. And I'm on the fence as to whether the wood is a good thing or not. However, fact is, it tastes great at cask strength OR diluted, unlike the few other CS whiskies I've had. And at least in Michigan it's a good 25% cheaper than the 18. So, more flexible, cask-strength, non-chill-filtered (not a big deal to me but sounds hip), and cheaper, with the difference in taste being minimal, and arguably better (if you prefer less wood and a peppier experience, again just marginal difference though), I'll definitely prefer this over the 18 going forward.
