The Glenlivet Captain's Bottling Note

An intriguing release from The Glenlivet, been finished in ex-Cognac casks for a ‘raisin-rich’ intensity, along with citrus notes and a creamy smoothness. Whisky finished in Cognac casks is not a common thing, so we're particularly interested in this expression. The name comes from Captain William Smith Grant, great-grandson of George Smith, Glenlivet’s founder.

Tasting Note by The Producer

Nose: Bursting with sweet and fruity aromas. Rich in 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.

Reviews for The Glenlivet Captain's Reserve
Not your usual
Pretty impressive. Not your usual Scotch but I doubt they made it to be usual. Love the sweet notes with the Cognac.

Whisky, Brandy, or not quite either ?
If you like whisky tinged ( tainted ?) with brandy this might be for you.

I did not much like it, I will stick with the 12 & 18 thanks

Excellence
What a smooth flawless whisky .very subtle flavours no burn. It's the 14 year repackaged . Better than the 12 but I love that too.

Something a bit different
Tasting notes are actually pretty accurate, even the chocolate. Something a bit different.

Decent purchase for around £30.

Some of reserves need to be fenced to stop these bottles getting out.
Nose: Sherried, but somewhat putrid. Reminiscent of Balvenie. Light butterscotch.

Palate: Cherry. Hard boiled candies. Hint of cloves.

After: Balanced dark cherry flavor.

Ultimately disappointing for the money.
Not what I was hoping for having been a long time enthusiast of the Glenlivet distillery. It’s quite thin, tastes like a fairly young bottling (8-10 years?) reasonably smooth but lacks depth and has a short and quite dry finish. I was hoping for more body and an oily finish but on the plus side there is plenty of flavour to identify although nothing has much dominance. I won’t buy another bottle, I’ll be sticking to the excellent Glenlivet 15 the future.

Wishy washy disappointment
Glad I only paid £25. Would not repurchase. Big rum and raisin ice-cream nose. Thin, weak, watery to the mouth. Unrounded, no depth, little finish. Easy drinking, inoffensive and pleasant for those who know nothing of good whisky.

Sweet and Smooth
Lovely easy to drink malt. Had a nip in a bar once and couldn't order anything else for the rest of the night, it is THAT good! Beautiful nose and wonderful finish. Highly recommend anyone (especially those that prefer the smoother whiskys) to give this a try

One of the best
I bought 6 bottles over the months and l need to re-stock. I'm left with under 2 bottles. One of the best acquired taste among the Glenlivet range.
