About The Glenlivet Nàdurra Peated Cask Finish
The Glenlivet Nàdurra Peated Whisky Cask Finish is the first peat influenced expression from the distillery in over a century. Created with respect for traditional methods this whisky is produced in small batches and bottled at natural cask strength without chill-filtration. Finished in casks that have previously held heavily peated Scotch, The Glenlivet’s classic, smooth and fruity house style has been enriched with gentle, aromatic smoky notes.
As a result, The Glenlivet Nàdurra Peated Whisky Cask Finish, has a nose of soft red apples mixed with citrus zest and aromatic smoke. The palate consists of a rich tangy marmalade followed by creamy vanilla toffee and a distinct toasted smokiness. The finish is long and complex with spicy notes layered by subtler smoky notes.
“Nàdurra, for me, perfectly captures the original passion behind the distillery and our commitment to crafting unique flavors. It’s a wonderfully warm whisky, with swirls of vanilla cream and subtle traces of tangy smoke which is definitely a new territory for The Glenlivet and one I hope Caskers Members will enjoy!” Alan Winchester, Master Distiller of The Glenlivet

About The Glenlivet
During the early 19th century, illegal distilleries were commonplace throughout the Speyside region of Scotland. In 1823, however, Alexander Gordon pushed the Excise Act of 1823 through Parliament. The Excise Act allowed illegal distillers throughout Scotland to apply for and obtain licenses to legally distill spirits. In 1824, a businessman named George Smith applied for one of the first licenses in the Speyside region of Scotland and opened the doors to The Glenlivet Distillery. For nearly two centuries, The Glenlivet Distillery has been producing the “single malt whisky that started it all.”
Scotch is the most popular whisky in the world and is considered the king of them all! There are five whisky regions in Scotland (six if you count the not officially recognized Islands), and each of them produces spirits with unique properties and distinct tasting notes. (The type of grain used determents the type of the scotch.)
Malt whisky is made of malted barley, and grain whisky uses other grains like corn or wheat. Most of the time, a whisky is blended from different distilleries hence the name blended scotch, but if a malt whisky is produced in a single distillery, we get something extraordinary called a single malt.
