Glenlivet Nadurra Peated Whisky Cask Finish Reviews
Tasting Notes by Stuart P
Nose: Creamy, with sweet aromas of candied fruit, green banana and pink peppercorn. Freshness, too, in the form of green-apple skin and mango. Earthy peatiness and gentle smoke lurk in the background.
Palate: Packs a punch at full strength, with a blast of smoke and black pepper! With water, plenty of fresh green fruit (apple and pear), as well as a touch of spice from the cask. The peat then comes through, but it’s richer and riper than expected, with creamy, custardy notes joining in.
Finish: The clean fruits linger well with the soft smoke.
Comment: This would be an ideal ‘beginners’ peaty whisky. The peat isn’t raw or ragged; rather, it blends in with the fruit and spice and doesn’t dominate.
