The bridge between tradition and innovation.

Everybody knows Glenlivet. It’s one of the biggest single malt producers in the entire world. Since 1824, when George Smith became the first distiller in Highlands to obtain a license for distillation, they’ve been the trailblazers of the malt-making business. Their Whiskies are officially Speyside, meaning that they are Highland malts produced along the river Spey. Their range includes a colourful rainbow of ages and cask combinations. One thing they don’t produce, though, is peated Whisky.

Until now that is. You’ve guessed it. The Glenlivet Nàdurra Peated Whisky Cask Finish is smoky, yes sir. Nonetheless, they've gone about it a bit differently. Nadurra means “natural” in Gaelic. They’re trying to recreate the classic cask strength expressions in the traditional style of time long gone. This means two things. With this one Glenlivet went back to basics, but at the same time out of their comfort zone. It sounds like nonsense, doesn’t it? Just indulge us for a sec.

Of course, it draws its inspiration from historic Glenlivet malt-making traditions, but this is also the first smoky Glenlivet in over a hundred years! Rather than starting with peatier malt before fermentation, they are adding it at the end - it rests in barrels previously occupied by peated Whisky. Subtle, easy going and harmonious. With just a touch of smoke. A whole lot of Spey and a bit of Islay too, perhaps? To evolve and create, but stay true to the taste and spirit of a classical Glenlivet - that’s what George Smith would’ve wanted. Consider us smitten as well.

Nicholas,
This was OK - too smokey.
 
Philip
Philip,
Wow.... The Glenlivet hasn't produced a smoky in over a hundred years? After this, I find that hard to believe, as it is amazing. The vanilla and tobacco sweet aroma to this beauty hides its strength of character. Opens up with a couple of drops of water and then bites the back of the tongue slightly enough to show a bit of citric acidity. Then it finishes quickly and smoky. Did I mention it's surprisingly sweetness combined with its strength? This Speyside Scotch is worth every penny....and at its strength, it will hit your head nicely. I'd bet this would pair nicely with a good cigar! Sláinte agad-sa!!!

Burt,
Deliciously smoky and fruity. A great combination of tastes. Presented at cask strength - what's not to like?

Matthew,
Got some serious kick to it. Not too smoky, fairly smooth once you get past the cask strength.

Great balance of woody taste. Great value

Scott,
Very enjoyable especially the wee bit of smoke on the back end. At 61.5% I need to work with how much water I want to add so I don't water down the other favors.

With the hint of peat, it reminds me of home in Ireland, and fireplaces slowly burning.

Unreal if you can handle the peat
 
Robert
Robert,
I feel that this is not what you would call a sipping scotch. Has a strong peated smoke with a bit of a nutty hint. Good scotch for those long tough days, when you need something that will bite back and not just nibble at the edges.

Way too much peat. Hits you in the face before anything.
