The Nàdurra 2013 is one of the more interesting Glenlivet's out there. I really enjoy the higher ABV and the fact, that this one is more raw in your face, and not so rounded as the 12 and 18 years old.

Nose: Some grassy herbal notes. Followed by apple, peach and lemon.
 

Taste: Complex and oily. There is raspberries, vanilla, marzipan and white chocolate. The characteristic apple taste is somehow vanish into thin air.
 

Finish: Long and clean with sweet malt and bitter orange.
