Re: Showdown of the cask strength Glens!
I am going to answer this the only way I know how. Taste off. Glenmo Astar vs 2 Nadurras.
Lots of vanilla. honey, malt, and some floral notes (carnations?). Feels a little lab created. Must like vanilla to enjoy this. 82 points. Nice but simple.
Nadurra Batch 0606A
Ginger and grass. Slight vanilla, and a green apple. Slight oak and some white pepper. 85 points. More complex.
Nadurra Batch 1206B (thanks for the sample Jobi)
Malt, slightly unripe apples and apple skins. Slight cardboard. Water helps. Brings out ginger, oatcakes, and some yeastiness. 72 without water. 78 with water.
hmm. Tough decision. I will choose........
Nadurra. Just seems to be more complex, though if you like vanilla the Astar would be an excellent choice.
