The Glenlivet Nàdurra Peated Whisky Cask is a unique expression from the brand. The latest edition in the Nàdurra lineup, which means natural, it has been finished in casks which previously held heavily-peated whisky. It's NAS, non-chill filtered, produced in small batches and bottled at cask strength. Batch PW0715 made it into the bottle at 61.5% ABV.

Tasting Notes

"The nose is intriguing, blending notes of honey, citrus and green apple, with light smoke and peat, along with spice. The high proof makes its presence felt on your first sip, but it's still smooth on the palate, with toffee, caramel and peaty smoke. The peat really comes through though on a tingly, spicy finish, along with dry oak. Open it up with a touch of water and find a more fruit dominant nose, along with earthier notes of grass and hay. Here, the palate is richer, creamier and sweeter, with dark brown sugar leading into a finish with toffee, cinnamon and ginger."
