The Glenlivet Captain's Reserve
70cl / 40% abv
This single malt comes from The Glenlivet distillery in the heart of Speyside. Part of the Founders range, this expression honours Captain William Smith Grant, the great-grandson of Glenlivet's founder, and is selectively finished in cognac casks imbuing the smooth and fruity Glenlivet style with raisins and spices for a rich and intense dram.
Nose: sweet and fruity, with honey, apricots, cinnamon and subtle liquorice.
Palate: mandarins in syrup, poached pears and chocolate coated raisins.
Finish: incredibly smooth.
