Glenlivet Nadurra Oloroso, 48%

Price: $84 Issue: Fall 2014 Reviewer: Dave Broom

I'm a fan of the original Nadurra's freshness, which maximizes Glenlivet's apple blossom and pineapple perfume. This pleasantly funky new brother has been matured wholly in oloroso, which adds (very) sweet sherry, nougat, blackcurrant, grilled pear, and malt. While the palate starts well, with mixed red and black fruits (and a little grapefruit), the sherry adds thickness from back palate on and the distillery slides away. Pleasant, but a tale of two halves. (Travel Retail exclusive)£50
