Tasting Notes – The Glenlivet Nàdurra Oloroso ( 48% )
Nose: Gorgeous gold colour. Nose of fruit, hints of cinnamon and toffee caramel.
Palate: Smooth, fruity and sweet. Lovely creamy toffee caramel and slightly peppery.
Finish: Short, sweet finish that makes way to a long warming spice hit that goes on and on!
Overall: A sweet sherried dram nicely mixing spices and fruit sweetness. A great addition to the Glenlivet range!
The Glenlivet is expanding its celebrated Nàdurra brand into a range featuring different cask experiences as it aims to build on its strong development in the growing single malt whisky market.
Nikki Burgess, Global Brand Director for The Glenlivet at Chivas Brothers, said: “The Glenlivet Nàdurra is the purest expression of The Glenlivet that captures the original passion and production methods of George Smith’s distillery.”
Each expression in The Glenlivet Nàdurra range will be crafted in small batches using traditional production methods and matured exclusively in a different cask-type. They will then be bottled without chill-filtration.
The Glenlivet Nàdurra Oloroso is the first new permanent expression in the range, and is the first major The Glenlivet bottling in living memory to be matured solely in ex-sherry casks.
“The Glenlivet Nàdurra Oloroso presents a rare opportunity to taste The Glenlivet aged exclusively in ex-Oloroso casks, which we anticipate to be extremely popular with whisky fans and an enticing purchase for travellers in Travel Retail when it launches”, added Nikki.
The Glenlivet Nàdurra Oloroso is available now from travel retail.
