Exploring the world of Single Malt Scotches

Glenlivet Caribbean Reserve

Glenlivet Caribbean Reserve-  Many of us are in dire need of warm breezes and/or some quality beach time.  If the weather has you housebound, try this sunshine in a bottle.  The distillers in the Livet valley are famous for their good but unremarkable single malt and that is about to change. This malt has been aged in rum barrels and the infusion is quite remarkable.  I found the nose to be ultra sweet with notes of pears and ripe bananas.  The flavors are tropical with toffee and a wee bit of kale.  The finish is medium in length and actually tastes stronger than the 80 proof as noted.  Ice and/or water are not a good idea as this whisky is plenty mellow and silky as bottled.  The amber color is sunset perfection so get ready to transport yourself to your favorite summer location.  I rate this non-age statement trendsetter a surprising 7 on the snob scale, oh…and the kale was just to see if you were paying attention.   Cheers!

    Geez, who wouldn’t want to give this a try after that float down tasty lane?
    Especially when I just heard it’s gonna be -8 tomorrow!!!
    Would you be available to rewrite my resume?
    Hope I get a chance to give it a try with the SSMS before long but I’m probably going to head out and put one in stock
