This is my first Glenlivet apart from a 1971 Berry Bros I tried last year, which was outstanding. It's nice to find a light and fresh, non-sherried Speysider and the colour of the Nadurra is testament to new American oak casks, a lovely barley gold.

The nose is white pepper and honeycomb and I would say better with a cap of water. Without it's a bit sharp and closed. With water.. very smooth vanilla-oak arrival with a floral, truffle-oil development, light melon, lemon, pear and ginger tones then kicks into a delayed and long, slightly bitter white chocolate and chili tingling of the palate. Definitely better with a cap of water and worth spending time with.

The longer I leave it I'm finding mint, parchment, wasabi and tobacco...

I started off with a Bushmills Black Bush and this Nadurra is a perfect contrast lovely developmental dram.
