Customer Rating

Inspired by Captain Bill Grant Smith, great grandson of Glenlivet's founder, Captain's Reserve is finished in casks that previously held Cognac – a process that creates distinctive notes of raisin and honey within this creamy, citrusy single malt.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting notes from the producer

    Nose: Sweet and fruity aromas of 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.

    Harsh on the palate but smooths out with a drop or two of water. Fruity with hints of chocolate.
