    Rated in a blind tasting (ProefOlympics # CL2 - April 2020)

  2. Casketje scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Yes, undiluted it's strong, alcoholic and very concentrated. Takes water quite well (1.5 to 2 teaspoons easily) and needs some time in the glass as well. Leave it for about 10-15 mins and it will surprise you. If you like A'bunadh (and I do) you will love this - it's even a bit sweeter than the A'bunadhs I've had so far. I bought this bottle for €39.99 and for that price you'll be hard pressed to find better quality.

    Whisky rather successful, a little young but well done. a dry sherry, a little meaty nose, and more fruity in the mouth.
    • Nose
      Nose quite lively, wild, on alcohol, pretty animal, leather, traces of plum. A little charcoal. not an easy sherry.
    • Taste
      Mouth more interesting, on dried fruits currants, plum, alcohol rather well integrated. Pretty sweet, fluid texture, little fat. Vegetable tip.
    • Finish
      Currants, plum, a little marc. Pretty nice.

    Today an older bottling of a Glenlivet Nàdurra is up for tasting. The whisky was bottled on June 11, 2014 with 60.7% vol. The color is similar to chestnuts and Oloroso sherry, which is not surprising, because the whisky was stored in Oloroso sherry casks. Amazingly, the windows in the glass remain relatively narrow.
    Overall, a very exciting and multi-layered Glenlivet that will certainly not suit everyone's taste. The bottle takes time, air and water, but then you have a great whisky with rough edges that you can spend a lot of time dealing with. Interesting malt!

      Very fruity when you first smell it, but also with a slightly pungent alcohol. The next sniff is much more pleasant and a broad bouquet of ripe fruits flows out of the glass. Apricots, ripe papaya, bananas, honeydew melon, sea buckthorn. The sweetness is mainly focused on the fruit and nothing is sticky or sticky. There are slight hints of marzipan and milk chocolate as well as a fine spice. Sandalwood, young suede, moist apple tobacco harmonize great with the sherry notes. Great and multi-layered when undiluted.
      After adding water, the sherry comes to the fore and the fruits become darker overall. The pungent alcohol is no longer to be found and the glass smells warm and seductive. Simply great!

      60.7% vol. Was simply too much of a good thing on the palate, and so the dram was reduced to 48% vol.
      The Glenlivet is full-bodied and oily on the palate, with a nice sherry sweetness and plenty of dark fruits. Plums, raisins, marzipan, honey, baked bananas, then a gripping spiciness of black pepper and menthol, before the salivation sets in and turns into a pleasant chocolate note with peanuts. The wood notes have a slightly astringent effect, but do not interfere too much.
      Overall, a very broad spectrum of flavors, even if it cannot meet the expectations aroused in the nose on the palate. It is advisable to experiment with water.
    • Finish

      With a medium to long finish, the Glenlivet says goodbye. Dark fruits followed by oak spices with a slight bitter note of dark chocolate remain on the palate without being unpleasant. Menthol freshness is added and a slight spiciness at the beginning has an invigorating effect afterwards. Dryness spreads to the palate for a short time, but gradually returns to the play of aromas.
