I have updated the mark on the “Glenlivet 16 Nadurra” to an A-. Ralfy was right in saying that when he left the bottle open overnight, it bettered the whisky. I’ve had a half-full bottle sitting here for over a month, and that air really opens up the whisky. This 53% cask-strengther is one of the few that goes well without water when the bottle sits (probably because you lose some of the alcohol). The bonus there is that instead of watering down the flavour, all you’ve lost is the heat.
In other news, I will attempt to keep this blog running with a minimum of one new whisky review each month. I’d like to do more, but of course, whisky is expensive, and we don’t get many 20cl bottles around here.
