GLENLIVET FOUNDER'S RESERVE

70cl / 40%

The opening salvo of the Glenlivet range, named in honour of the distillery's founder, George Smith. It's classic Glenlivet, with a creamy and fruity character bolstered by the use of first-fill American oak to mature some of the whisky.

NoseA typically fruity Glenlivet note is the strongest first impression, but sweet aromas of candy and toffee surface to create a very pleasant combination.


Palate: Follows neatly from the nose, again wonderfully sweet and smooth; almost creamy. Comforting tastes such as toffee apple and pear drops invoke a pleasant sensation. This is followed by a burst of fruit; orange and other bold citrus fruits fight for centre stage.

Finish: Impressively sustained finish which lingers on those sweet, smooth tastes and welcoming aromas.

Overall, this is an appealingly accessible new release which should offer a nice alternative for fans of the popular Glenlivet 12 year old. The smoothness of the finish and the linear evolution from nose to taste, without sacrificing complexity, makes an excellent dram which is suitable for every occasion.
