The Real Glenlivet

The nose is luscious, intensely sweet, and creamy. There are also notes of tropical fruit - tangerine, pineapple, and guanabana. The overall effect of the nose is similar to Glenmorangie, but "thicker" and more intense. On the tongue, this scotch really isn't fooling around. It has substantial body, almost an oiliness to it, and a spicy sting. This is a "sledgehammer" version of Glenlivet that makes the Glenlivet 12 seem limp and pale by comparison. In this case, extra strength and extra age have paid off considerably. There is a strong tropicality on the tongue as well as a big honey-sweetness that lingers and leaves behind an alcoholic sting. This should be a real pleasure to those who like the marriage of complexity and power found only in cask-strength bottles.

@SimeonSanchez, thanks for your review.
It is pretty easy to like a fresh bottle of Nadurra. I think that you have to be careful with it giving it air time, though.
I am also a big fan of Glenlivet 21 yo Archive. That one is pretty pricey, though.

Thanks, Victor. How a scotch holds up in the bottle is one of those issues I'm still learning about. The one scotch where I've really noticed the issue is Glenmorangie 10. Man, does it fade fast! It goes flat and turns into something a bit like window cleaner.
