The Glenlivet Founder's Reserve has been created using the time-honored distillation methods that he introduced so long ago. Made with water from the same crystal-clear mountain streams, in the same cold, pure air, The Glenlivet Founder's Reserve captures the distinct, smooth, fruity taste that he first envisioned in 1824 and for which we are still renowned today. And because we remain as dedicated to innovation as our founder ever was, we've given this classic single malt a contemporary twist.
Selective use of the aged oak casks and American first-fill oak casks provides a smooth, creamy sweetness that mingles harmoniously with the delicate flavors and complex fruity tones already present in the whisky.
The result is an exceptionally well-balanced and smooth single malt. On the nose, there are delicate aromas of citrus fruit, while the palate is sweet, with notes of oranges and pears, and hints of toffee apples and candy. The long, creamy, smooth finish makes this a deliciously satisfying expression. (from The Glenlivet)
