This was my first taste of Nadurra, and it was a pre-dinner cocktail.
A nice warm light golden color of hay/straw. Great palate for a warm summer evening's dram.
On the nose, one is immediately overwhelmed with honey sweetness. Whoa! Setting it down for just a minute, I took another scent. Banana, vanilla, butterscotch and some almond are there. The scents are truly mouthwatering. And they open up a bit more after letting it sit for a couple minutes.
With the first sip, the honey is plainly evident, as it completely fills the mouth. I was a bit surprised at the alcohol burn, but that's not unexpected with a cask strength whisky.
The second sip is where the underlying flavors come through. It's like having a hard candy in your mouth that slowly melts. Banana, custard, toffee and some slight floral notes cover the palate.
Flavors that continue to develop as you sip Nadurra are stronger than one would expect, simply from the powerful initial honey scent.
This is truly a special whisky, and one that I will go back to. I can see it as being a perfect after dinner companion with coffee/cappuccino, or just a nice sipper with a small cube of ice on a warm evening.
