One of history’s greatest Single Malts finished in Caribbean Rum casks.

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 Whisky 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 is the go-to Single Malt in quality bars worldwide. Every bottle is always jolly-good stuff. But what happens if you take your signature Single Malt and finish some of it is ex-Rum casks from the Caribbean?

Glenlivet Caribbean Reserve IS that dram. And what you get is a floral, fruit-forward Highlander with exotic notes percolating to the top of the palate in creamy tones of banana, melon, and mandarins. You might just have found the summertime dram of the year.

Ben
Ben,
I found this to be an excellent scotch for the price. Typical Glenlivet taste combined with a more floral overtone made for this a very enjoyable dram.
 
Evan
Evan,
Great for the money. Just the right amount of influence from the rum barrel and a not too sweet, smooth finish.
 
guest
guest,
Smooth, spicy and sweet. Just great
 
Laura
Laura,
Very drinkable, decent value. I was hoping for a cheap version of balvenie Caribbean cask. Its not quite there though.
 
Colin
Colin,
Was not my most favorite scotch. But was very nice neat over just one ice cube. I think it was a good value for the money spent.

Tyson
Tyson,
Smooth and slightly sweet. Maybe my taste is still learning but it has a Smokey/spice to it that is not my fave but is nice in small doses
 
Dale
Dale,
Really nice finish, slightly sweet flavor
 
Emily
Emily,
Great for the price point. Very sweet, light, and floral. It makes for a nice summer scotch.
 
Mitch
Mitch,
Nice that there's an affordable rum cask finish scotch on the market now but it definitely drinks like a $40 bottle...makes you really appreciate what you get when you shell out for the Balvenie 14 or even better the Glenfiddich 21!
 
Brett
Brett,
This has become my go-to, always in the bar scotch. The price is almost absurdly cheap for what you get, which is a perfect every-day sipper. My bar is never without this one.

Bob,
Did not like it at all. For the first time i had to use a scotch as a mixer in drinks. Does work good in their version of a Mai tai though

Sheldon
Sheldon,
Nice bottle for the price. It is on the sweeter side for a whiskey but not to sweet and surprisingly smooth. Tasted of Citrus and vanilla and I’m not mad about that. Will be buying another bottle once this bastards kicked.
