The Glenlivet Founders Reserve Scotch Whisky

2 items left

To truly capture the essence of George Smith’s vision, The Glenlivet Founder’s 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 air, The Glenlivet Founder’s Reserve is as smooth and fruity as the whisky that first ran from the original copper pot stills. These unique, lantern-shaped copper stills, designed by the man himself, are not the only important tools in our distilling legacy. The traditional oak casks in which we mature the whisky give each expression its own distinct characteristics. When George Smith began distilling, The Glenlivet had no age statements and he selected whisky from casks of a range of ages. We have replicated this freedom with The Glenlivet Founder’s Reserve, selecting whisky from a variety of traditional aged oak casks. Then, to lend a modern twist to the flavour of the expression, Master Distiller Alan Winchester marries together a selection of the aged oak casks and American first-fill oak casks. American first-fill oak casks are those that have never before been used to mature whisky. Selective use of these casks provides a smooth, creamy sweetness that mingles harmoniously with the delicate flavours and complex fruity tones already present in the whisky.

WoodFord Reserve

Great price, service was great. Shipping cost was higher than expected for the 3 bottles I bought.

Fast shipping

Great bourbon and great service

Old Reliable

Wonderful every day Bourbon. A great example of what BT as a whole is all about. Very rich and smooth, considering the proof and price point you can’t go wrong with this one!

Favorite

I was bummed when Elijah Craig 12 Year disappeared and they dropped the age statement and relabeled it as Small Batch. That is still a fine bourbon, but this single barrel ticks far more boxes for me personally. Great full bodied bourbon with a punch, while still finishing smooth with no harshness or the excessive burn. I try to keep 2-3 batches of this one on hand in the bar when possible.
