The Glenlivet Master Distillers Reserve
The cornerstone of the range, the Master Distiller's Reserve showcases the approach perfectly: the traditional oak casks represent the classic style of The Glenlivet (ripe pear, gentle summery notes), while first-fill American oak provides depth and creaminess (coconut, soft fudge). Finally, ex-sherry oak brings complexity and richness (dried fruit, spice). Maturation in three types of oak makes for three times the character. This bright and lively gold expression has pear and fudge on the nose and fruit and spice on the palate. To finish, it dazzles with hints of marzipan and hazelnut. The Glenlivet legacy lives on in this incredibly sweet and smooth spirit. Cask: Triple cask matured in traditional, First Fill and ex-Sherry Oak. Flavor: Pear, fudge, spice, marzipan, hazelnut.
