The Glenlivet Captains Reserve is a tribute to the former owner of the distillery, Captain Bill Smith Grant. Under his reign the foundation for today's success. This Glenlivet matures in the first instance in both bourbon as sherry barrels before the switch is made to ex-cognac vessels. Here the whiskey matures for at least six months after. Nose: sweet, fruity, honey and spices. Taste: sweet and packed with notes of mandarin, chocolate syrup and raisins. Finish: medium and soft.
