Whisky Reviews for Glenlivet Nàdurra

10 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.46 points

  1. Gloin scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    The smell is almost archetypal for a firstfill bourbon ripening and miraculously shows that no sherry casks are needed for intense aromas. This impression continues in the mouth and finish, supplemented by strong oak. A wonderful whisky, which shows what is possible even without Weinreifung. I love him for that. The whisky is good for a few drops of water.
    • Nose
      green and yellow apple, lots of vanilla, sweet and sour, lemon, cut grass, white wine cream, lemon ice cream
    • Taste
      Sharp start, the alcohol is noticeable, the notes from the nose are repeated, sweet and sour fruit and vanilla, but now comes neat spicy oak
    • Finish
      In the finish, the oak becomes even more powerful, the sweet fruits have to give way to the soft, only a light acid can prevail against the oak and mix with the bitter bitter notes from the wood.

  2. dRambo scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Nose: slight note of glue, vanilla, tart oak spiciness with delicate tart notes, butter, toffee, caramel, apples, all very clean and clear Taste: without water gentle alcohol, no burning, strong fresh pleasant oak, sweet and sour, oily mouth feeling increasingly dry, then spreads vanilla, warm spicy intense, concentrated, white pepper, finish is long and complex Conclusion: delicious - just after 16 years from the fresh barrel brought and not dirty, no color, no water, no filters ..

    Compared to the 0814D, this one might be a little less fresh because I detect no green fruits. Quite as good, though.
    • Nose
      Banana, just like the 0814D, then strong vanilla and butterscotch. Bourbon maturation if ever there was one. Honey, hay, some mint, hints of ripe red fruit and cinnamon
    • Taste
      Honey-dipped banana, vanilla, butterscotch, red fruit and some spiciness.
    • Finish
      Medium long and somewhat drying. The banana, pineapple, melon and other yellow fruit slowly die on your tongue, hints of red fruit and cinnamon die along with it. Some maltiness comes up and faints. Eventually the vanilla comes peeking and slowly distance itself again. Brilliant!

  6. Tobi2100 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Does not need water for me. The alcohol binds perfectly. I like very much very complex complex. PLV (80 €, 2017/06) is fine.
    • Nose
      sweet intense pear, coconut, vanilla, caramel
    • Taste
      sweet, fruity, pepper
    • Finish
      medium, milk chocolate, sweetness, caramel, wood without being bitter

    Not nearly as complex as some of the early batches, but the quality of each note is excellent! Clover honey, and cinnamon are highlighted here on the entry...powdered cocoa on the finish, fruits and florals in the middle...succulent, sweet, spicy, juicy, Earthy...basic, but delightful nonetheless. Recommended!

    A solid 80 points
