Folks,

Remeber Nadurra is a batch product so in the same as A'bunadh will change slightly in strength from batch to batch. Its great news to hear(read) how many of you are enjoying Nadurra, the response not just here but in all the markets you get it in have been very positive.

Di Blasi,

Delighted that you enjoyed the samples, any questions please let me know.

Ian - re the Nadurra, I read on Serge's whiskyfun site today his review of this. (incidentally, I'd give the 18 quite a few points higher myself :thumbsup: )

I concur with his thoughts in it being akin to a good Lowlander such as Rosebank or Bladnoch - the phrase 'lemon sherbet' sums it up for me.

Anyway, the question I have is - is this 'lowlander' profile something the Nadurra is aiming for?

Ian

Thanks for your insights on this thread.

Is the only difference between the Nadurra Duty Free 48% and the Nadurra Cask Strength, the addition of water?

Cheers

Leither,

Its an interesting comment with regard to a goo lowlander but is something have never considered. The fact that we are using 100% first fill American lets the classic Glenlivet fruitness come through better than it would have with European.
The "lemon sherbet" is spot on as far as I am concerned especially on the finish for me, a lovely gentle fizziness on the back of the tongue. Lemon Sherbet gives the fruitiness of Glenlivet and the vanillin induced sweetmess of american wood.

Woodhill.
You are correct, the wood policy etc is exactly the same for both, just cut to 48% for Travel Retail.

Thank you again for your interest.
