Wine Enthusiast 96 points - Delicate and complex, this newly released Scotch boasts scents of maple sugar and spice, and unfurls on the palate with a distinctly floral start that evolves into creamy vanilla, honey, sarsaparilla and baking spice. Light and silky, it almost feels effervescent on the tongue, finishing with a perky herbal note reminiscent of hops..Kara Newman, December/2015
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 97 points - Stone fruit, lemon zest and honeysuckle get a savory aromatic counterpart from smoked hay on the nose. Light on the tongue with elegant flavors of honeyed barley and hard toffee. A gentle spice balances the silken texture..April/2016
To truly capture the essence of George Smithâs vision, The Glenlivet Founderâs Reserve has been created using the time-honoured distillation methods that he introduced so long ago. Made with water from the same crystal-clear mountain streams, in the same cold, pure airs of Glenlivet, The Glenlivet Founderâs Reserve is as smooth and fruity as the whisky that first ran from the original copper pot stills back in 1824.
