    In many whiskys, the mash is frightening, but in Nadura it is a very important and well-woven component, this smell and spirit that envelops the entire distillery from the doorway, it is inherent only in Glenlivet and is unique in its own way!
    • Nose
      Bright, bready, green apple core, apple compote, light cognac-sherry tones, dried fruits
    • Taste
      Dried fruits, dates, sweetness 7/10, light and pleasant brewiness, stupidity, very pleasant tones of prunes and dried apricots, enveloping the astringency of grape seed
    • Finish
      bitterness and woodiness

    Out of the sherried Whiskies ive come across this one is the youngest ive tried, but man is it one of the all time most sherried and most instense. 60.2% is quite a high number especialy for the faint of heart, tasting it neat however, for me at least, boy does it deliver a fruity and sweat puch like few sherry whiskies i've tried ever did. As a matter of fact this one became one of my all time sherry favourites despite it is an NAS. From smell to tasting this young whisky does not dissapoint, spare my favouritism on sherry, this dram has some quite intense flavour delivery especialy on your 3rd sip forward. A whisky that shows stronger character and takes you to an unexpected but pleasant trip the more you sip it can't go wrong.

      The Aroma due to the alcohol levels is quite pinchy but full of dried and if i may say fully fruity notes as if ripe -ready to fall of the tree- fruits were mixed in this dram, sweet sweet vanilla coming of your second smelling, tofee, caramel, sun dried fruits, burnt sugar like the one i used to smell on mornings passing by patisseries on my way to school...

      This whisky, despite its age, brings forth some major sherry experience. Sipping it raw will bring you mostly tastes of vanilla, caramel, even some chocolatey notes. Sherry shines through and never dulls your senses, these got to be fresh sherry wine casks, first fill no dought. But where i fell in love with this dram is the following... after 2 or 3 sips this young one becomes better and better, intsense as they come, get ready for a sherry experience you've never had before. Despite the alcoholic burn this whisky might leave you, after some drinking, it gets all the better the more you let it slide down your palllete and tasting buds. Carefull not to overdo it and let it burn you tongue, but finding the right amount of time you can circle it in your mouth delivers some of the greatest and in-depth sherry notes one has ever experienced. This is one is an exceptional dram.

      As expected, a whisky as strong as this will leave some alcoholic burn down your throat, but its sherry influence is dominant enough that the burn is overshadowed of the sherry fruitness and sweetness leaving the taster feeling no youngness or sharpness whatsoever. Ive had a lot of whiskies with longer after taste but let's be real here... this dram is destined to be tasted for its blast of smell and taste rather than its long after taste. Even so, for an NAS, it delivers quite the finish, though i personally believe it is the strength of its alcohol content plus some fresh, first fill sherry casks that leave the heavy rememberance of a tasteful and in depth sherry experience.

      Bottom line, This one is for the sherry lovers, if you can handle your alcohol levels, try it neat. If 60.2 (which objectivly speaking is realtively high) is too much for your tastes, try adding water and see what transformation this dram takes. For me this is a must taste if you consider yourself an adventurer of single malts.

    I compared it to batch OL0317. They're really really similar.
    • Nose
      Cherry, rhubarb, blueberry and caramel.
    • Taste
      Sour cherry, rhubarb, caramel and schnappsy fig. Water takes off that schnappsy edge and adds hazelnut paste.
    • Finish
      Cherry, caramel, rhubarb, chocolate and a little banana.

    One of the most interesting NAS releases. Here everything is good with him, boldly take it and you will not go wrong. It is easy to calm the barrel strength with a drop of water - we get another aroma.
    • Nose

      Apples, fresh fruits. Honeycomb. A little sherry and cognac. Caramel.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Barrel strength: powerful peppers, apples, lemons, citrus in the second dram, caramel
      A drop of water: fruits to the fore, citrus fruits, caramel leaves

    Nice, though very sweet. I love the rich texture, rich spice, and long finish. It really is candy-sweet though, almost getting cloying on the finish. Given how sweet and cinnamon-y it is, it’s maybe not as much to my taste as drier sherried whiskies. Still, it exceeded my expectations and was very nice to sip on a Muskoka chair in the evening sun.

    Nose: Sweet sherry. Candied red fruit, red licorice (Nibs), various fruit preserves, berry syrup, Grenadine, and raisin challah. Red Delicious apples. Thick honey, milk chocolate, and cinnamon spice.

    Palate: Medium-thick texture. Arrives with more of those sweet red apples and honey-soaked raisin challah, as well as chocolate-covered cherries and some mild sulfur. Rich caramel, cinnamon buns, and toasted walnuts in the middle. Dried strawberries, brown banana, and orange.

    Finish: Medium-long and very sweet. Big candy apples (the ones with the hard red coating), honeycomb, chili-spiced chocolate, cinnamon hearts, and raspberry sherbet. Plenty of spicy gingersnaps, some nectarine, and slivered almonds. Maybe the sesame-seed-covered crust of that raisin challah.

    The nadurra is great. This also applies to this olorosso version. One of my favorite
