Awards: Silver Medal – San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2020. Gold Medal – International Wine & Spirits 2016
The Glenlivet Founder’s Reserve is a Scotch whisky from the Speyside region of Scotland. Using a method by founder George Smith, the whisky is matured in a selection of traditional and American first-fill oak casks. It is then combined with American first-fill oak barrels, which have never been used to mature whisky before. Selective use of these casks gives this single malt a well-balanced sweet and smooth taste. Its flavour is sprinkled with citrus fruity tones, complementing its pale gold colour. This made it winner of the 2019 International Wine & Spirits Competition (IWSC) Gold award. This classic whisky is a perfect gift offer for special occasions or to treat yourself as an everyday dram. It comes in a 70 cl (700 ml) bottle at 40% ABV. Enjoy with ice or use to make cocktails such as Hot Toddy, Carnivale and The Last King.

There’s orange zest, toffee, hints of struck match and chocolate raisins, but before this starts to sound ‘Sherried’ there’s also pear drops, a dusting of sweet cinnamon, honeysuckle and sweet pea.
Palate: Fruity, then sweet, more toffee, a touch of anise, then into milk chocolate Flakes, banoffee pie and apple turnovers.

Overall: Perhaps a little sweet, but it would work well with ice where the sweetness would be slightly suppressed – and before you shudder with disgust, Alan Winchester said that he liked his with a little ice sometimes too. And if it’s good enough for the Master Distiller…
