Launched in 2016 as the third expression in Glenlivet's Nàdurra range, this has been finished in casks which used to hold peated whisky. Inspired by the original whisky from the distillery in the 19th century, which was peated, this has notes of vanilla, cream, and subtle smoke.Tasting Notes (1)
- Black Pepper
Tasting Notes by Stuart P
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.
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.
The clean fruits linger well with the soft smoke.
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.

Love this. Very well done Glenlivet. Neat, not to my liking, have to be honest at 61.8 (my bottling strength) it doesn't have the age to battle the alcohol strength, your missing out sipping this without water. You get a nice pinch, a touch of smoke and some custard vanilla, that's it. So, I poured another generous dram and added 3/4 teaspoons of water, popped a lid on it and came back in an hour. Wow, what a difference that peated finishing makes when you give it time to sing. Medicinal cured meats, sea spray, brine along with the textbook green fruit and soft honey. I have seen a lot of reviews of this and I bet my last dram that many are based on little to no water. Experiment, take risks with this and you will be rewarded. It's a sleeping giant and it's calling for a good load of water. Wonderful stuff.
Thoroughly enjoyed, I found that mixing half and half with water completely changed the taste, much more to my liking. Looking forward to adding the others to my collection.
Nose is pretty characteristic of a Glenlivet whisky, light floral/fruity notes. But the taste, wow what a shock! It's peat! In a glenlivet! The taste is pretty mild, which might disappoint fans of peaty scotch but it's a surprisingly good bottle for drinkers who prefer the floral/fruity end of Scotch, basically a nice bottle for a Glenlivet fan who wants some smoke.
