Review: Glayva (Scotch Whisky Liqueur)

Posted by Arctic Wolf on January 19, 2012

Glayva (a Scotch Whisky Liqueur) was created by Edinburgh whisky merchant Ronald Morrison in 1947, and (according to the Glayva website) the recipe has remained unchanged since the day it was first crafted. It is a blend of aged Scotch malt whiskies and a carefully selected range of spices which include Mediterranean tangerines, cinnamon, almonds and honey.

The folks at Authentic Wine and Spirits,  recently provided with two 350 ml sample bottles of Glayva to share with my Rum Chums during our tasting events tasting this past fall. I decided that a review on my website would be quite fun as well. Here is an excerpt from the review:

“…The aroma from the glass is honeyed. With the candied sweetness I also sense strong herbal scents and a firm citrus flair. I sense a little cinnamon in the breezes as well as a bit of mandarin orange. ..”

    The glayva site won’t accept comments

    • Hmmm!

      My Bottle was one of those Canadian Bottles and it opened just fine. Try running some hot water over the top to see if maybe some crystallized sugar is making it stubborn.

    Have you tried opening the Canadian bottles? Th liquor store employees could not do it.
