Everything we love about Glenlivet with a rich palate and Cognac finish.

George Smith was running an illegal still on the estate of the Duke of Gordon in the wee early 1800’s — who he supplied with the occasional dram. The Duke sponsored legislation in 1823 that made whiskey distilling legal in the UK, it just so happens that George Smith was the first one granted a license.

Today Glenlivet is one of the "Big Three" Single Malt producers. Their Whiskies are Speyside and the water for the mash comes famously from "Josie’s Well" nearby. Glenlivet produces a wide variety of Single Malt agings and cask combinations, with the remaining Spirit an indispensable component in some of the most famous blends.

Glenlivet issues a few fourteen year-old special editions here and there. There are almost always very limited runs — special casks, limited joint ventures, pleasant Single Malt experiments… that kind of thing. When you see the "14" you can bet there’s a story behind it. The story behind The Glenlivet 14YO Cognac Cask Finish started as a limited edition in 2018 called "Captain’s Reserve" — aged fourteen years is ex-Bourbon and Sherry casks, before finishing in ex-Cognac casks made of Limousin oak. The flavor profile was exceptionally well-received, so it has been renewed with a few tweaks. Expect the classic notes you love in Glenlivet with additional notes of sultanas and mandarins.

Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most single malts are matured longer).

Incredible fruity rich flavor

John,
Good caramel color and nose is woody. The port barrels give it a very distinct taste and flavor. It is a little light on the finish but ultimately a good drinking whiskey .

Michael,
Wow, what a nice surprise. The cognac finish is superb. Easy drinking yet not boring at all. You’re going to want more and more. Solid value, at least in my locale.

Nicholas,
Creamy, smooth flavor. Heavy Pear syrupy flavor. Easy finish - especially for a single malt scotch

Bennie,
This was my first venture in Glenlivet and Scotch in general. Was tempted since it was in Cognac Cask so decided to give it a go. Glad I did. A nice break from my norm.

Christopher,
I usually hate glenlivet. but I enjoy cognac & had never seen a scotch aged in cognac barrels before, so I gambled on a bottle. Best decision I've made on an unknown bottle, Easily in my top 5.

Doug,
Already a fan of glen-12, so the 14 cognac was an easy choice. And it did not disappoint. Smoky, peat, smooth. Delicious! Finished my first dram and immediately ordered two more bottles. Cheers!

Daniel,
Deeelicious. I love the 18yr, and this comes close, but about half the price. A little more burn than I like on the finish, but that’s the only reason I didn’t give it a 10. Smells wonderful. Very smooth initial mouthfeel, and sweet oak on the palate with a long finish.. This will become a regular for me.

Don’t like the cognac finish. Unlikable taste I can’t place.

Stephen,
Still exploring Scotch but this was an instant favorite! Fruity aroma and slightly sweet on the palate with a pleasant finish. I found it better without water. Like this better than the 15-year offering.

Good nose definitive oak scent. Smooth and complex finish really enjoy
 
Aaron
Aaron,
I found this one somewhat lacking in flavor complexity. It’s not bad but it’s nothing to write home about. The 15 is much better.

This has become my favorite. Amazing.
 
Jacob
Jacob,
Was at a Glenlivet tasting and I greatly preferred this to the 15 and 18! The cognac finish was spectacular and something everyone should try! For a relatively young scotch this may be the best I've had
 
Michelle
Michelle,
A splash of water really opens up this very smooth and pleasant offering from The Glenlivet. Hints of vanilla on the tongue and then a great finish
 
Kent
Kent,
Really like this! Interesting and enjoyable nose, taste, and finish... All complex with something new each time I go back. Will be buying again.🥃
