New from the Glenlivet, comes a unique single malt created from a single-source grain Triumph Barley. Distilled non-chilled filtered and then aged 18 years in Speyside, this is the Glenlivet’s first ever single-varietal scotch.
The Glenlivet Nàdurra Triumph 1991 single malt has a light golden hue. Its nose is extremely smooth with a slight fruitiness and tones of butterscotch.
Aged 18 years, the Glenlivet Nàdurra Triumph 1991 is like velvet on the tongue. It has wonderful initial warmth with bursts of fruit followed by nothing but a mellow oak finish. The non-chilled filtering causes the whisky to retain a bit more of the woody flavors from the cask.
This is special occasion scotch, yet reasonable at ~$85. I did find it at K&L for $70. I recommend treating yourself.
