Nàdurra means natural, The Glenlivet’s range of small batch expressions made to 19th century techniques. First Fill is drawn from casks of American white oak, which impart creamy vanilla to the wonderfully rich Single Malt, complemented by sweet pear, pineapple and ripe banana. First Fill is a cask strength Malt, non-chill filtered and richly textured. A perfectly balanced display of fruity and floral characters, oak is present but in the distance. A warm experience of the fresh and fragrant air that breathes freely around Speyside.
It was in November 1824 that George Smith was granted a Distiller's Licence for the remote parish of Glenlivet. Within a few months the first legally produced Glenlivet whisky began to flow at the small distillery at Upper Drumin. History and the single Malt that started it all was in the making. Success did not come easily for George Smith. There were battles to be fought with Whisky smugglers and a hostile climate to withstand. But with immense courage and fortitude, against almost insurmountable odds, George Smith and his precious Malt Whisky prevailed.
Bright gold. Sensuous, exotic fruit, candied pineapple and lilac, honeyed blossom and acacia, creamier and richer notes, stewed greengage and ripe apricots, vanilla crème anglaise, a hint of marshmallow. Oak tenderly enhances that enticing bouquet with more vanilla notes and nutty hints. An echo of toasted oats. Soft spices. Green cardamom, touch of caraway seeds. The single Malt to match fruit pudding.
