Glenlivet Founders Reserve
Named in honour of the distillery's founder, George Smith the Founders Reserve is a wonderfully smooth and creamy dram which has been aged in First Fill American Oak Casks, which retains a balance with the zesty flavours. There is no age statement on these bottles, just like the very earliest bottles of The Glenlivet. The lack of age statement allowed Smith to draw from different cask ages, and that freedom has been replicated to take advantage of the distinctive pre-aging character created by the unique lantern shaped stills used at the distillery.
Nose: Delicate aromas of citrus fruit, notably sweet orange.
Palate: Sweet, fruit notes of zesty oranges and pears, with a hint od candy, toffee apples, well balanced and exceptionally smooth.
Finish: Long lasting and smooth.
