The Glenlivet Nadurra First Fill Selection

Nadurra, named after the Gaelic word for 'natural', is the purest expression of The Glenlivet. Traditionally crafted in small batches using 19th century methods, it is non-chill filtered, delivering a distinctively creamy texture and mouth-feel. Nadurra First Fill Selection is drawn from casks of American white oak, which have never before been used to mature Scotch whisky. The technique of using virgin casks has been in favour with distillers at The Glenlivet since the early 1900s, and the untouched oak imparts hints of creamy vanilla and sweet pears to this wonderfully rich single malt. Capturing the original passion behind George Smith's distillery, Nadurra First Fill Selection continues the intricate and highly skillful traditions of single malt whisky making, bringing the taste of tradition together with a unique flavour distinctly its own. And now to whet your appetite, the tasting notes. The Nadurra First Fill Selection is a light gold in colour. An abundant bouquet of soft, sweet pears and creamy vanilla fudge will engulf the senses. On the palate there is a deliciously sweet mix of tropical pineapple and ripe banana, coupled with a delightful citrus sparkle. A medium and refreshing finish makes this a smooth yet lively dram.
