The Glenlivet Nàdurra PWC Bottling Note

Matured in first-fill ex-bourbon casks before a finishing period in casks that previously held heavily peated (Speyside peat, as we understand it) Scotch whisky. This third no age statement Nàdurra release addresses the fact that if you're setting out to create a whisky that George Smith would recognise, you do have to appreciate that peat was used at the distillery in his day. Read more over on the blog.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Tangy and 'fizzy', old fashioned lemonade and hints of Orangina or Buck's Fizz even. There's gooseberry and a touch of coconut and foam banana. Raspberry and rhubarb develop. The peat comes through as nutty malted barley.

Palate: Tasting this alongside Ian Logan, he explained how his favourite tasting notes are the ones that get right to the point, so here you go: Peat & Pear Drops!

Finish: Creaminess and earthy peat combine for a chocolatey finish, both pleasantly bitter cocoa and creamy Cadbury's hot chocolate with hints of fruitiness still.

Overall: Fruity Glenlivet combining very well with considered use of peated casks.

Glenlivet Nàdurra Peated Whisky Cask Finish Reviews

Great Whiskey, smooth and a little peaty

I am in love with the 16 Year Old Nadurra and thought I would never meet another whiskey that pleases me evenly. I was wrong, generally I am not a fan of a smokey whiskey but I absolutely love the smooth soft but smokey finish of the peated Nadurra. Simply stunning, complex, full, just awesome.

Refreshingly light peaty fruitiness

Wow what can i say apart from I'm not a whisk/e/y expert but so far in my efforts lately to try to have a go at "what makes a likeable drinkable whisk/e/y" as opposed 'to a drink that smells & tastes like one' I have come across a few that i would buy again & believe me thats not many on my list of repeat buys.. Let me put this into context, i have a shelf of whiskies still waiting to be finished off , problem is if its not good they stay there & only the good ones get shared. I bought this whisky as i do like a peat finish like Caol Ila & i do like a refreshing taste like the Japanese Suntory Hakushu or Hibiki reserve in the mouth after it has gone down sooo according to the tasters notes above i bought it & so far this beauty hit my whisky top 5. Now i gotta buy another bottle :)

A very pleasant surprise!

Delicious whisky with the peat taking a surprisingly supportive role as opposed to an in-your-face position. Fruity, sweet, and smooth. Great finish.

A very different whisky to what I usually drink, but wow!

Yes it is fruity and still absolutely amazing and unique. The is a whisky that some might frown at but it is so good that people do things that are completely different. This is excellent quality and a real pleasure to drink.

Excellent in my opinion.

I found it to be an excellent choice on my part. The Nut and fruit taste is very different for me in a single malt scotch however, truly delightful to the palate. Thank you Gentleman for educating me on the Peat Process that I new nothing about . While I have been in your beautiful country Many years ago, It tempts me to make a second visit and take a tour of your process for such a fine product.

Citrus and peat

At 62%, this is bottled at a higher abv than I would like, but with a little water, a feast of flavours come through. Citrus dominates with peat in the background. Very distinctive. I still prefer the oloroso, but this is also a very interesting expression.

Smooth

Had the Nadurra with one ice cube to cool it down. The taste on first sip was divinely sweet and smooth, taste like toffee. Further detected a faint smokiness in the background. The finish was a little citrus. Great to drink with roasts.

Not so peaty. Just perfect Bourbon cask.

Absolutely gorgeous. Ridiculously complex. Had been a big fan of the old 16, enjoyed the new Oloroso cask (not quite as good as A'Bunadh), & have not tried new Bourbon, largely cos i can't get past this. I barely taste the peat: it's more like a really tasty Bourbon cask with the smoke off in the next room. Divine.
Maybe someone should take down the review by the fool who drank a 61.5% whisky neat?
Just a theory.

Any other peated whisky would be better. ANY. OTHER.

Harsh. Simply too damn harsh. If I have to water it just so I can swallow it there's entirely too much alcohol to taste anything else here. After 15% distilled water added; it smells like a household cleaner with hints of lemon, a lot of oak and vanilla, dried flowers, earthy grass, honey, and missing terribly is a good peaty smoky smell. Taste: Like chewing on a plank of charred wood that someone has dropped a bit of nature's sweetness on plus some rubbing alcohol. Seriously disappointed in this.

Unfamiliar Scotch that I received for Christmas. Very smooth whisky that is becoming a personal favourite

One Great Whisky!

Full of flavour and very complex! This is one of my favorite whisky's, it's surprisingly smooth for a 61% cask strength whisky when drinking it straight. When adding two drops of water it opens up different flavours it changes both the nose and the taste. Compared to your average Islay Whisky the peat is light, but gives it some nice earthy tones, a nice change from your general Speyside Whisky.
One of the best, especially in its price range!
