The Glenlivet Caribbean Reserve brings a tropical twist to your favourite dram

A cocktail stands before a bottle of The Glenlivet Caribbean Reserve

Scotch whisky with a Caribbean twist? That’s the idea behind The Glenlivet Caribbean Reserve, and we reckon the combo is irresistible.  

To create a whisky with a delicious tropical twist, the distillery finished a portion of the smooth liquid in barrels that previously held Caribbean rum. The result is a unique dark amber whisky that offers rich caramel toffee notes on the palate, sweet notes of pears and apples, and a silky finish that hints at pineapple.

We’re always up for breaking with tradition, and The Glenlivet Caribbean Reserve Caribbean Reserve makes a delightfully unconventional accompaniment to any BBQ or summer soiree, whether you like a straight-up dram over ice or a refreshing long tipple.
