Advent Calendar 17/24. Nadurra is another I’ve tried before and have given the same score to now. I’m a fan of Glenlivet and this is a good one, particularly in the nose (where all the action is anyway).
Nose – Complex, well balanced tropical, floral, candlewax and fresh wood. A little air freshener or anti-perspirant. Rich, cereal backing, dried figs, beautifully integrated malt. Beautiful, well made and rich.
Body – Dark, very spicy, deeply malted, rich and balanced. Hard to fault.
Finish – Continues, then develops into a less balanced, sweeter malt where the cereal dominates.
What's not good about it: Finish is a little short and sharp.
What’s good about it: Beautiful nose, rich spicy palate. Delicious and well structured.
