Glenlivet has unveiled a second new permanent expression to it’s Nàdurra range.
The Glenlivet Nàdurra First Fill Selection is drawn from casks made from American White Oak that have never before been used to mature Scotch whisky.
These casks have always been a popular choice of distillers at The Glenlivet since the early 1900s, imparting hints of creamy vanilla to the malt whisky.
The release follows the initial launch of The Glenlivet Nàdurra Oloroso earlier this year and is supported by a new cask strength edition of this expression – The Glenlivet Nàdurra Oloroso Cask Strength.
Celebrating the highly skilful traditions of whisky making at The Glenlivet, all expressions in the Nàdurra range (Gaelic for natural) are bottled without chill-filtration, offering the additional complexity, body and texture of a whisky that has just been drawn from the cask.
The 19th Century production methods, combined with maturation in first-fill American Oak casks, imparts The Glenlivet Nàdurra First Fill Selection with an inviting aroma of soft vanilla, fudge and sweet, ripe pears, developing into a tropical mix of pineapple, banana and citrus on the palate and leading to a refreshing finish.
Nikki Burgess, Global Brand Director for The Glenlivet said, “Whisky enthusiasts have admired The Glenlivet for its signature smooth and fruity flavour profile for nearly 200 years so, with our Nàdurra range, we want to highlight the skill and craftsmanship behind The Glenlivet.
The Glenlivet Nàdurra has long held an extra special place in the hearts of single malt whisky connoisseurs and we are confident that our new Nàdurra innovations will satisfy their increasing appetite for excellence in single malt whisky craftsmanship.”
