The Glenlivet Nadurra Peated Whisky Cask Finish Review

The Glenlivet Nadurra Peated Whisky Cask Review

The Glenlivet Nadurra Peated Whisky Cask Finish as you will probably guess from the new expressions title has been finished in casks which has previously held peated whisky, to be more precise American oak casks that have previously held heavily-peated Scotch whisky.

Those of you that have had the pleasure of non-peated whisky which has matured in casks which previously held peated whisky will know that it doesn't impart a great deal of peaty character to the whisky but if done right with a good cask selection the whisky can take on a very subtle peaty dimension.

The Glenlivet Nadurra Peated Whisky Cask Finish ReviewWilliam Morrison's Tasting Notes:

Bottled at a cask strength of 61.5% ABV

Nose: Creamy vanilla fudge, pear, coconut and just a very delicate hint of smoke in the background

Taste: Delicious zesty pear and lemon dances with the mouth coating oak spice which is all kept in check by the creamy vanilla fudge. Just the gentlest hint of sweet smoke.

Finish: Very long, oak, lots of vibrant spice, zesty pear and a lingering very gentle smoke.

Comment: Another outstanding addition to the Nadurra family. The smoke was never going to be in your face, just a lovely subtle added dimension, the smoke comes more to the fore on the finish, the oak and spice is very lively which just adds to the fun. Another very enjoyable addition to the Nadurra family.

SMW Score 92/100
