The Glenlivet announces the introduction of The Glenlivet Nadurra Triumph 1991 , a limited-edition expression of the Nadurra range. A unique approach to single malt, the new offering was created using a single-source of grain — Triumph barley — which is no longer used at The Glenlivet distillery, making this a truly special addition to The Glenlivet portfolio.
The Glenlivet Nadurra Triumph 1991 joins the range of ‘nadurra’ (Gaelic for ‘natural’) whiskies that is testament to the innovation and craftsmanship in distilling which continues to define malt whisky to the world. The new offering was distilled and casked in Speyside in 1991.
Aged a full two years longer than the first Nadurra incarnation, a 16-year-old cask strength, The Glenlivet Nadurra Triumph 1991 offers a greater flavor imparted from the wood. The additional resting time, a broader selection of casks and the use of Triumph barley provides a layer of complexity that is mildly sweeter and more fruit-forward than its counterpart. All of the elements of the offering are perfectly balanced, a trademark of the family of whiskies, and another example of why The Glenlivet’s portfolio is the benchmark by which other single malts are judged. Keeping in line with this range of whiskies, the Nadurra Triumph 1991 is non-chill filtered, which better retains its natural flavors, with additional richness and a creamy mouthfeel.
“The Nadurra 16-Year-Old Cask Strength expression has been one of the most well-received offerings in The Glenlivet’s portfolio since its debut in 2006,” says The Glenlivet U.S. Brand Director Ron Zussman. “We wanted to create something new, while still incorporating the core elements that make our Nadurra whisky so special. The result is our first ever single-varietal scotch, Nadurra Triumph 1991, one we expect will be appreciated by both the whisky enthusiast and the whisky collector.”
The Glenlivet Nadurra Triumph 1991 will join the award-winning portfolio of single malts including a 12-Year-Old, a 15-Year-Old French Oak Reserve, the Nadurra 16-Year-Old Cask Strength, an 18-Year-Old, the Archive 21-Year-Old, The Glenlivet XXV and the rare offerings of the Cellar Collection. The Glenlivet Nadurra Triumph 1991 will be available only in the United States beginning in November 2009, with a suggested retail price of $85.
