Here is something different, a whisky inspired by the unique character of its namesake, Captain William, which will take you on a journey from the misty glens of Scottish Speyside to the heart of the Cognac region in France - with every sip.
The Captain, as everybody loved to call him, was an ambitious and determined man who was fighting in France during WW1 when he inherited The Glenlivet distillery. A good reason why Captain's Reserve is finished in Cognac casks, uniting its raisin-rich honey and spicy notes with the smooth citrus flavours of this distillery's distinctive Speyside style.
Nose - Sweet and fruity aromas of honey and apricot jam, with notes of cinnamon bread and a subtle sensation of spicy liquorice.
Palate - Succulent flavours of mandarins in syrup, ripe poached pears and chocolate dipped raisins.
Finish - Smooth and luscious.
