The latest addition to the excellent Nàdurra range of natural cask strength, non chill-filtered whiskies is 'First Fill Selection', a sweet, vanilla-rich virgin American white oak matured version from The Glenlivet.
||Frosted Shreddies, coconut crème brulee and vanilla infused sugar. Sultanas moving into marmalade, a hint of blackcurrant. Baked apple slices in custard. With water it opens further with gummy bears, pear drops and a hint of fern, a subtle floral soapines

||Slightly smoky oak and almond goodness, with water revealing some citrus that, whilst I don't like to quote official tasting notes, is indeed "refreshing".
