Glenlivet Nàdurra #0313W
Nadurra means natural in Gaelic, and that's just what the Nadurra range of The Glenlivet single malt Scotch whisky is all about. It's bottled at cask strength without chill-filtration, letting you taste the always excellent Glenlivet whisky in the most natural way possible. It is made in small batches that are matured in bourbon casks for 16 years.
Nose: Soft hints of marmalade, subtle spices and a floral breeze, with vanilla surrounding all of it.
Palate: More floral notes. Fruit and honey droplets, followed by some toasted oak.
Finish: The oak subtly continues on the long finish, supported by a fair amount of spice.
Overall: A bright and shiny dram.
The best I have tried yet

Picked up a bottle from this batch for £37.50 on offer at Tesco; there are bargains to be had if you do your homework!
Sharp at first, the intensity of the alcohol carrying mainly apple notes. One teaspoon of mineral water: still sharp but much less so, apples dying down, custard, gentle vanilla, subtle and growing oak influence. Citrus but not overtly. An almost apple cider like quality. Overall, a lovely, gentle (I know, it's cask strength!, friendly whisky with trademark Glenlivet class

About a year into malt Whisky, and I've tried Glenfiddich 12 and 15, Glenmorangie, Ardbeg 10, Dalwhinnie, Old Pulteney, Aberlour and several other cheaper ones. This is the best!
