Nàdurra loosely translates as “natural” according to the label, it’s apparently made using traditional methods and aged in first fill ex bourbon casks. Is that a contradiction in terms? Who cares if it tastes good, certainly not me.
Pours as quite a viscous gold liquor, a simple floral aroma greets the nose, vanilla, frangipane and honey suckle make for a sweet agreeable start.
There is plenty of body when you imbibe, almost a syrupy richness to the mouth feel. The flavours are somehow at odds to the weight, mainly light floral and fruity. Vanilla as you’d expect from the bourbon casks, apple, satsuma and fresh apricot. There is also a pleasing biscuit flavour and a touch of spice to complete the profile of this malt, the flavour development is near perfection. The symphony of flavours continues into the long finish which is spicier and dryer.
Overall a pleasing combination of quite light flavours with a heavy weight texture. It would probably score considerably less at 40% ABV, so not one to dilute.
