Glenlivet Nadurra 16 year old

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).

Glenlivet Nadurra 16 year old, 55.5% A+


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.
