The first new expression, available now, is The Glenlivet Nadurra Oloroso. Matured solely in ex-sherry casks, the Oloroso boasts notes of cinnamon and licorice along with warm spices and dried-fruit aromas.
Available next spring, The Glenlivet Nadurra First Fill Selection is drawn from American White Oak casks and offers hints of vanilla.
The Nadurra range is crafted with a nod to traditional production methods (nadurra means ‘natural’ in Gaelic). The expressions are produced in small batches and bottled without chill-filtration. This process is designed to offer additonal complexity, body and texture.
“These two new expressions are indicitive of our commitment to producing the very best whisky in the world,” said Wayne Hartunian, Vice President, Scotch and Cognac, Pernod Ricard USA. “We are certain that our loyal customers will be pleased with these new offerings, as the Nadurra range has always been a favorite of whisky afficionados. We are confident that these two new expressions will follow suit.”
