Glenlivet Nadurra is a "natural" dram, so simple, straight forward and refreshing that you just want to hug the Whisky master who came up with the idea.

George Smith was running an illegal still on the estate of the Duke of Gordon in the wee early 1800’s. The good old Duke ... ahem ... may or may not have been aware of the illicit operation in exchange for a personal supply. When the Duke helped sponsor legislation in 1823 that made Whisky distilling legal in the UK, it just so happens that George Smith was the first one granted a license. Now legal and above board, he naturally named his “new” business after the local parish—Glenlivet. Today Glenlivet is one of the "Big Three" single malt producers, being #1 in the United States and #2 worldwide. Their Whiskies are officially "Speyside," meaning that they are Highland malts produced along the river Spey, and the water for the Whisky mash comes somewhat famously from "Josie’s Well." Glenlivet produces Whiskies in a variety of ages and wood-matured combinations, and the remaining spirit not bottle as part of their Glenlivet lineup is considered an indispensable component in some of the most famous blends.
 
In Gaelic, Nadurra means "natural," but NOT in a new-age hippy-dippy politically-correct organic free-range kind of way. Some wonderful whisky master at Glelivet said, "Hey, why don’t we just make a nicely aged, clean, pure Whisky without fancy used casks or flavoring." Whoever that guy was, I want to shake his hand. 

The Glenlivet Nàdurra First Fill Selection is drawn from never before been used casks of American White Oak. Bottled at cask strength this beauty gets a great combination of flavours because of this technique which was used by Glenlivet back in the 1900's. This is one of the purest Glenlivet's available today!

Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
Bottles from 1970s and 1980s having the Glenlivet name on them, are not always from The Glenlivet Distillery, it could possibly only be referring to the area.
In Holland, The Glenlivet has adopted the slogan 'Discover the single malt that started it all'.
Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
