Glenlivet - Nadurra 16 Year OldSpeyside Malt Whisky
Nadurra is the Gaelic word for natural. Revisiting 19th century practises, and unlike most modern whiskies, this single malt is not chill filtered, giving the mouth feel more body and a richer texture. A bold innovation in single malt.
After 16 years in first-fill American Oak casks, Nadurra is bottled at natural cask strength to deliver a rich and rewarding taste
