Glenlivet "Nadurra" 16 year old, Non-Chill Filtered Single Malt Whisky 750ml

SKU #1026584 92 points Wine Enthusiast

 Light and versatile, although at over 100 proof 'natural cask strength,' this golden spirit could stand some dilution, whether via a dose of ice water or mixing into a cocktail. Perfumy floral-honey nose, with flavors of vanilla lemon, oak, and a hint of smoke on the finish.  (12/ 2011)

90 points Whisky Advocate

 Aged exclusively in first-fill bourbon casks and bottled unfiltered and at natural cask strength. This takes the usually subtle Glenlivet and makes it more vibrant, amplifying its flavors while accentuating the bourbon oak. Tight notes of honeyed malt, vanilla bean, toasted oak, bright fruit, and nuts, are peppered with more subtle floral and spice notes. Dry, spicy finish. A Glenlivet with pizzazz. (Vol. 15, #4)

Wine Spectator

 A flavor safari from nose to finish. Opens up with honey, sour apple and cream, then brings on apple, orange Creamsicle, maple, toast and brown sugar in the mouth. The neverending finish is the crowd-pleaser here, with anise and candy notes and a remarkable ethereal quality. Cries out for water at this strength. Non-chill filtered. 54.2 ABV.  (2/ 2011)

At over 100 proof, this is a whisky that definitely needs some taming. A splash of water and a sliver of ice make this whisky much more approachable, though it will still pack a punch even after dilution. Elements of smoke and a hint of honey vanilla round out the finish, though I still think it lacks the smoothness of some other offerings in its age bracket. The perfect choice to warm from within on a cool evening!
