The Glenlivet Founder's Reserve boasts a creamy and fruity character bolstered by the use of first-fill American oak. With a pale gold colour, it offers aromas of citrus fruit, particularly sweet orange, with notes of toffee, struck match and chocolate raisins. On the palate it is fruity and slightly sweet with flavours of zesty oranges and pears with a hint of toffee apples, before a long and creamy finish completes the experience.
