Whisky is often mistaken as a man’s drink. Not just any regular man, mind you, but an alpha male that’s suited up in business finery with a pour of Scotch at the ready. But with The Glenlivet’s range, whisky is made approachable. It’s not just for the Harvey Specters of the world – it’s a quality drink that can be enjoyed by anyone.  

There’s no need to feel intimidated since you can try their single malts for free at Changi Duty Free. If you like what you’re sipping, you can even pick up a personalised bottle.

The Glenlivet’s latest whisky range, the Triple Cask Matured Series, includes 3 bottles, featuring different oak casks: Distiller’s Reserve, White Oak Reserve, and Rare Cask. The series is an interplay of whiskies matured in 3 different casks: Tradition Oak Casks, American White Oak Casks, Ex-Sherry Oak Casks. 

Upon uncorking any of the 3, you’ll be getting a whiff of complex flavours – nothing like the sugary-sweet cocktails or potent tequila shots of post-hangover regrets.


Distiller’s Reserve

Those looking for an affordable staple will enjoy the Distiller’s Reserve. It’s been equally influenced by the three different casks, and you’ll get a tinge of earthiness coming through.

If you’re looking for a pour that’s representative of The Glenlivet, then this will please with its well-balanced flavours. Fruity notes are at the forefront with hint of sweet pear and soft fudge. Roll it around your mouth for flavours of spicy orange marmalade.


White Oak Reserve

The White Oak Reserve is certainly sweet, having been aged in American Oak Casks. You’ll get an almost velvety texture with mild hints of honeyed caramel. When breathing in, you’re bound to smell ripe fruits – think juicy pears – the finish is balanced and has an overall finesse that’ll keep you wanting more. 


Rare Cask

For those longing for a subtle sweetness, the Rare Cask takes the cake. Thanks to the proportion of ex-sherry casks it’s been aged in, it almost smells like peaches in syrup with an additional tinge of spicy ginger. There’s also a long finish to this, with hints of spiciness lingering on your tongue.
