    Nose: Fruity.
    Pineapple, ripe banana and citrus.  Vanilla.
    Lemon peel.  Honey and butterscotch.
    Malty.  Lovely restrained oakiness. Expressive
    and lovely nose.

    Spicy and sweet. First the sweetnes is icing sugar crisp. Later more honey-like.
     Citrus bon-bon. Some toffee and honeyed sweetness. Well
    integrated wood spices.

    Medium to long. Citrus sweetness. Spicy. Slightly drying with a chocolaty bitterness.I was really pis…. when I bought this dram. I wanted to buy the famous Nadurra
    and thought I picked up a cask strength whisky. When home I was somewhat disappointed to
    see that it was only 48%. A travel
    retail trap.But I must admit that it still is a nice dram. I think it can match some of the
    Nadurra batches I have tasted after this.I have rated a sample I have saved for some years. Perhaps this one isn’t cask
    strength but it is still 16 years in first fill barrels. Things has
    turned to the worse for the present NAS Nadurra range. Ages does matter.

    I let him breathe for 10 minutes, it smells fruity, of sherry, but also of alcohol. Strong start, grape, marzipan ?, vanilla, all very nice, but something is not round ... I really like Glenlivet, but I do not have this anymore. Edit: had it recently and I liked it a lot better ...

    Beautiful whisky! One of my favorites.
    • Nose
      Excellent sweet fruit salad. Banana (banana sweets), red apple, peach and cherry liquor. Cinnamon, liquorice and a little bit of menthol or eucalyptus. Absolutely stunning nose!
    • Taste
      Very sweet arrival with a nice oaky development. It's fruity alright, but covered in a vanilla sauce. At the very end a sweet and sour note enters the mouth. Much like lemon candy ("Napoleon" sweets).
    • Finish
      Mildly bitter with a little bit of wood smoke (toasted wood). Not very long but certainly decent.

    Nadurra is very different depending on batches

    The 0808F (?) batch is very much better than earlier ones fx
