Glenlivet 16 Year Old Nàdurra Batch 0813Y Reviews

This is top shelf single malt whisky in every way.

I’m a fan of Glenlivet. They have mastered the art of making hard liquor that gives the drinker a peppy buzz with next to no chance of a hangover, while still hitting some great Speyside notes in taste, nose, and finish. The craziest part is that the above statement still applies to this fine cask strength Nadurra 16 at 56% ABV and NCF (as well as the stronger 60%+ batches I’ve tried). Cask Strength bottles (and most NCFs) have a wicked tendency to punish me the morning after I drink a couple drams, especially the older and peatier varieties. For example, Ardbeg Uigeadail is certainly excellent in nose, taste, and finish, but it gives me horrible headaches the next day and I mean horrible. The unique Nadurra 16s do not give me even the slightest hangover the morning after and the buzz is just as peppy as the 12 year as well.

I would categorize the N16 as a true champagne and vanilla bomb. It has all of the pleasant Speyside champagne, fruit, and vanilla flavors and smells of the 12 year on steroids, as well as having the wine, tea, and vanilla/oak spice of the 15 year. The vanilla, especially, goes supernova in this fine whisky and it combines seemlessly with the other attributes, as well as the black/white pepper splash, burnt sugar, butter, and baked fruit pie aspects that are absent from the younger Glenlivet bottles. This is a slight step above the 18 and very close to the 21 and 25 as well for a much better price. Hopefully, someone talks some sense into the bureaucrats at PR, so they start making this absolute gem again. Until then, I’m going to stock up.

Do not let any one tell you that age is not important!
I am sure, that in more humid climes, you can age a Whisky twice to almost three times as quickly, also ,the quality of the barrel/s has a huge bearing. Maturation ( In the Northern Hemisphere ) ideally, should be a minimum of 16 years if you want a premium product that is less astringent and impure. PS: The Whisky is and will become a classic.

"Who needs Sherry Casks"?

At 56.1% and 16 years old - "What is there not to love"?
The ONLY reason I have given this a 9 out of 10 is because - it has been DISCONTINUED!
Luckily, I have 17 bottles of various batches in my cupboard - although being 50, I don't think it will last into my dotage! - alas, what about the poor saps that will NEVER get the opportunity of enjoying a mere nip!

I was lucky enough to get a bottle of the 16YO Nadurra as a gift a few weeks back. I loudly proclaimed it to be one of the best drams I've tasted - and it was! They were listening - I got two bottles for my 70th today.

Strongest of the Glenlivet's Selection

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,

Grape stem

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.

Great value

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.
