What a Bargain……

It pays to have a regular look in the the whisky aisle of your local supermarket; I walk down this aisle in Tesco and Asda every visit!

It paid off recently when I saw this beauty reduced to half price!!

Would you believe it, a Glenlivet Nadurra in a bourbon cask, just what I like, and two of them left at half price. Well, I took both of course and opened the first one tonight.

At 55.7% you would expect it to be a touch too much, but it could be drunk at this strength. The nose was wonderful with fruit and flowers and the taste was superb with tropical fruit, sweetness and plenty (of my beloved) vanilla.

I added what I thought was just enough water but it was too much and the nose and palate was gone. OK, it needed a wee bit water and I will be more careful next time, or maybe just drink it neat.

A wonderful whisky, so glad I managed to get two!
