Glenlivet French Oak Reserve 15 Year Old Single Malt

Glenlivet is a name synonmous with excellence in Single Malt Scotch production and this 15 Year old gem aka, the smooth flowing one, is a true delight to experience.

Producer’s Notes: “This complex whisky is as rich as you would expect on the nose, but also filled with aromas of orange peel and candied grapefruit. The palate is very round, smooth and slightly sweet, with fruity and nutty flavours underlined with the subtle spice of cinnamon. This gives way to lingering hint of toasted almonds and hazelnuts.”


COLOR

Rich and golden.

AROMA

Oaky on the nose with a bit of smoke, almond and spice.

TASTE

Very smooth and mature.  Long and lingering.

THE BOTTOM LINE

What can you say about a Glenlivet Single Malt that has not already been said.  An excellent bottle to sit back and enjoy with good company and a few cigars.  Highly recommend!

El Dorado Special Reserve 15 Year Old Rum

Where I’m from on the planet, this Special Reserve Rum is legendary and arguablly better than some bottles 10 years older.

A 4-time consecutive winner of the Wray & Nephew Trophy for Best Rum in the World, this beauty is not easy to find locally, so whenever you do find one, I strongly recommend you pick it up before I get there!


COLOR

Golden brown

AROMA

Full nose, packed with coffee, dark chocolate, pepper and rich vanilla.

TASTE

Incredibly smooth and silky, reminiscent of cognac

THE BOTTOM LINE

Crafted from 15 to 25 year old rums that are then blended and married together in bourbon oak casks, this now legendary rum is the king of  smoothness.  Drink it neat like fine cognac
