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

Acquired taste.

Don't like it. Strange on the nose and odd aftertaste. I'm not a rum fan but it's not rum I am tasting here (and I am tasting it right now as I type).
Not for me, but that does not mean not for you. I think I shall be putting the rest of this into coffee.

It really is worth trying especially at the price

Any reviewer giving less than 4 stars for this particular whisky knows little to nothing about Scottish whisky, just try it, I promise, you won’t be disappointed, truthfully you’ll thank me for it

A great session whisky

Clearly not a refined single malt, but then it's not claiming to be! Great alternative session whisky that you can enjoy in slightly larger quantities without waking up with a head like a sledgehammer!!

Pleasantly drinkable

Personally I quite liked this drink. I wouldn't say smooth was a bit harsh straight but I did enjoy the carribean aftertaste. Works well with a mixer I think. Maybe not one for the connesieurs though

Very smooth. Love the flavour

I really like this whisky. I'm not a massive fan of Glenlivet as I find the taste quite harsh. This, on the other hand, is lighter and doesn't have the alcohol taste. The nose is refreshing and the after taste is really nice. I used ice stones so it didn't water down and it really made a difference enhancing the taste. This is definitely going to be one of my favourites.

Dangerously good!

From the first taste this became my favourite whisky ever. There is only one problem, once I started pouring and sipping I kept pouring and sipping. Normally I would maybe have a couple of glasses very occasionally so going through more than 3 quarters of a bottle in one evening is a first.
Absolutely 5 stars from me.

Disappointing sharp taste!

May as well be drinking Jameson. Harsh taste. The people here calling it smooth must not have the palate or experience with a truly good quality single malt.

Ineresting, nice for a try!

Quite a nice drop, easy to drink and has an interesting combination of flavours. Smooth with a sweet after tase (but not too sweet).

If you want to try something different, it's good. Decent value for the money, IMHO. But not suitable for purists.

And there is no point in comparing this to a bottle that is twice the price (or more), as that's not what it is... compare it to something similar in value, and you'll be happy with this drop.

Avoid if your after a smooth/refined experience

Harsh taste, strong aroma of alcohol as in meths!
If your hoping for something akin to The Balvenie Caribbean Cask your going to be sorely disappointed!
