Glenlivet Caribbean Bottling Note

A tropical expression from The Glenlivet, for Caribbean Reserve a portion of the whisky was finished in casks which previously held Caribbean rum. The distillery folks suggest adding a splash of coconut water, though we reckon a malty twist on a Mai Tai is on the cards!

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Honeyed orchard fruit, tinned pear and fried banana.

Palate: Ripe tropical fruit and brown sugar, along with cinnamon pastries.

Finish: Pineapple upside down cake.

Glenlivet Caribbean Reserve Reviews

Harsh

One of the worse malts I’ve tasted.

It's... okay...

I'll be honest, I've not been a fan of Glenlivet compare to what else is out there, but thought I'd give them another go with this rum cask finish. I get alot of honeydew melon and some other notes. But I'm still not overly impressed. It's a very easy, mellow drinking whisky. Breakfast whisky as some would say. I feel like this could have been so much more if the abv was a few % more, 43 or 46% to give the mellow notes a kick of spice.

Again, not my tipple, but I'll be sure to try whatever else they venture into in a few years time. You know, for curiosity...

Would have got 2 stars, but gave the extra half for being on offer. Marketed well. It fooled me.

The real crowd pleaser!

A real crowd pleaser! Don’t be put off by any mediocre reviews of this fine expression from The Glenlivet. Smooth, sweet on the nose and an easy light finish with the rum and caramel coming through.

Very enjoyable, light and uncomplicated.

Ok its not an expensive whisky, but I enjoyed every sip. Light & smooth, gentle sweetness conjuring honey and tropical papaya notes

Decent Old Fashioned Fodder

This is not a whisky to sip slowly and saviour. It’s one to enjoy in a cocktail or in a highball. Don’t worry about what it’s not, enjoy it for what it is.

Disregard the negative Nancy's below. Its Well Worth it!!

GLENLIVET Caribbean Reserve

Dont feed the trolls below... this Scotch is the best bang for your buck around. When im looking for a cheap dram this is spectacular.

The Look:  Copper
The Nose:  Honey, Toffee, Coffee, Sweet Berries, Plum
The Taste:  Plum Pudding, Sweet Berries, Cream, Cherry
The Finish:  Only about 10 seconds, not great on the Finish
The Bottle:  Classic Glenlivet look with a pop of orange color, which suits the flavor profile.

THE VERDICT: 87 PTS
One of the only Scotches under 35 bucks that I truly thoroughly enjoy.  The finish is completely lacking however and once you swallow you have about 10 seconds to savor.

First time tried nice smooth finish
Nice to drink at fireside on cold winter night

Did the Blender have a cold that day ?

Avoid this at all costs even at a supermarket 'reduction' price - was hoping it would be at least close to the Balvenie 14 Caribbean Cask - but if that conjured up images of the sunny tropics, this tastes like some industrial effluent from a factory in Lanarkshire - distillled on a dreich November morning. Another NAS; there's no Rum here that I can taste and a rough horrible finish that leaves an unpleasant after taste.

Nose: it's Whisky - cheap whisky - the sort of whisky your great gran used to keep for toothache.
Pallate: slightly sweet industrial swill
Finish: surprisingly long but not pleasant - a lingering generally aroma of cheapness throughout.

The first malt in 30 years of drams, I would ever think of putting a mixer in and not being ashamed.

Expected more

A nice dram but I think the rum finish would be better suited to a more aged malt.
Was expecting more intense flavour and softer mouth feel.

Similar to other Glenlivets

Tasted this expecting it to effectively be rum over a whiskey. My verdict is that it is definitely still a whisky; the rum influence isn't actually that strong and I found the product to be similar to other Glenlivets.

Nose: sweet toffee, apple, bear and banana on the nose.
Palatte: sticky toffee pudding with some rasin
Finish: medium with some pineapple and spice
