Glenlivet Nàdurra 0813Y
The Nadurra series is Glenlivet's range of 16 year old single malt Scotch whiskies, which have been matured in ex-bourbon casks and then bottled at cask strength with no chill-filtration. A fantastic small batch expression. This edition comes from batch 0813Y, bottled in 2013.

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,
