Glenlivet Founder’s Reserve, NAS, 40 %
Not a whole lot of information is known of the Glenlivet Founder’s Reserve other than that it has been matured in a selection of the aged oak casks and American first-fill oak casks. There is no age statement for this whisky.
Nose: Mild and approachable. Vanilla, orchard fruits with a twist of citrus. Butterscotch.
Taste: Medium body and sweetness. Still fruity but more towards oranges now. Dark-ish chocolate.
Finish: Medium to short finish. Quite light now. Almost watery as it tapers off.
Comments: Even Steven. Quite OK for an entry level whisky.
