Description

Flavor Profile Breakdown

The Glenlivet Signature (Speyside Single Malt): This forms the base of the whisky and contributes:

  • Smoothness: Speyside malts are known for their smooth and easy-drinking character. 
  • Honeyed Notes: A signature characteristic of Speyside whiskies. These can range from subtle sweetness to a more prominent honey character.
  • Citrus: A hint of lemon or orange zest might be present, adding a touch of freshness and complexity.

Rum Cask Influence

The first-fill rum casks likely imparted:

  • Sweetness: Expect notes of molasses, a thick and syrupy sweetness reminiscent of dark brown sugar.
  • Tropical Fruits: Hints of pineapple, mango, banana, or even coconut could be present, depending on the rum used.
  • Vanilla: Traces of vanilla might come from the rum or interact with the other cask influences.

Bourbon Cask Influence

The first-fill bourbon barrels likely contributed:

  • Spice: Warming notes of cinnamon, clove, and maybe even a touch of peppery spice from the rye grain often used in bourbon.
  • Vanilla: Bourbon casks are known for imparting significant vanilla character. Expect a richer, more prominent vanilla presence compared to the potential hint from the rum.
  • Caramel: Notes of caramel can also emerge from the interaction of the bourbon with the charred oak barrels.
