The Glenlivet Founder's Reserve was first launched at the end of 2014 in honor of the founder of the distillery, George Smith. That year, The Glenlivet Distillery succeeded in realizing its long-desired plan and sold one million casks worldwide, becoming the number one distillery in sale of Single Malt Scotch whisky. At the first encounter, on the nose, you will feel typical fruity notes, with the aroma of sweets and caramel in the background. They are accompanied by aromas of orange, cinnamon and grapes. After the first sip, the palate is dominated by a wonderful, sweet and smooth, almost creamy taste of caramel, apple and pear. After that, aromas of fruit, orange and citrus come to the fore, with a touch of banana and traces of vanilla in the background. The finish is impressive, with a smooth, sweet and creamy taste and aroma of caramel, with some warmth from the oak and malted barley. So soft and sophisticated that it's hard to resist.
Very sweet, but also somehow bitter, a little strange. Good beginner whisky, very accessible due to its thin and sweet fruity nature. For me its not offensive, but its also not evoke a superior experience either!
