The Glenlivet Captain’s Reserve has a rich and intense flavour coming from the raisin-sweet taste of Cognac and the signature creamy smoothness of the Glenlivet. After maturing in bourbon and sherry casks, the Glenlivet whisky is finished in ex-cognac casks for at least 6 months, creating a unique rich intense flavour. It is bursting with sweet and fruity aromas. Rich in honey and apricot jam, with notes of sweet cinnamon bread and subtle sensation of spicy liquorice. There are succulent flavours of mandarins in syrup, ripe poached pears and chocolate-dipped raisins.
