Inspired by Captain Bill Grant Smith, great grandson of Glenlivet Founder George Smith, The Glenlivet Captain’s Reserve will make you wander through the misty glens of Scottish Speyside to the rolling vineyards of French Cognac at every sip.
The luscious liquid finds its unique honey and spicy notes through its journey from bourbon and sherry casks to a selective finish in high quality Cognac casks, for at least 6 months. The art is in mastering the balance between the influence of the finish and The Glenlivet’s signature style.
Bursting in sweet and fruity aromas, The Glenlivet Captain’s Reserve shines as a proud celebration of Speyside craft, taking you on a golden adventure that begins with the finish.
The rich and intense flavour unites the raisin-rich, honey and spicy notes of cognac with the smooth citrus profile of The Glenlivet’s distinctive Speyside style.
Colour: Rich Gold
Nose: Bursting with sweet and fruity aromas. Rich in honey and apricot jam, with notes of sweet cinnamon bread and a subtle sensation of spicy liquorice.
Palate: Succulent flavours of mandarins in syrup, ripe poached pears and chocolate-dipped raisins.
Finish: Incredibly smooth and luscious.
A new taste exploration by The Glenlivet makes it THE Whisky.
