Another excellent bottling in Glenlivet’s super popular Nàdurra range, batch number FF00117.
Nàdurra translates from the Scots Gaelic as “Natural” – as the bottlings in this series are presented at cask strength and without chill filtration.
This whisky has been matured in first fill American oak casks, imparting oodles of toasty vanilla and Bourbon-like notes to the dram.
The final product serves up notes of rich, peppery spice (cinnamon, pepper and slight chilli), orange peel, thick vanilla, citrus juice sweetness, caramel, toasted almond and coconut, bananas, cedarwood, apples, pears, hay and crunchy malt sweetness. Well-balanced and invigorating.
The dram is presented at a robust cask strength of 59.1% ABV, and has a light and youthful body.
