Its aged in first fill American oak casks for an intensely smooth, creamy finish.The Glenlivet Founders Reserve is a tribute to George Smiths original vision to craft the definitive, smooth Speyside malt whisky. Crafted by current master distiller Alan Winchester, the whisky has been aged predominantly in first-fill American oak ex-bourbon casks.As a result, The Glenlivet Founders Reserve has a pale gold color with bright notes of blood orange and burnt sugar on the nose. The palate transitions to flavors of pear, rock candy and caramel apples before finishing with notes of toffee, peanuts and honey. Easygoing yet full of flavor, The Glenlivet Founders Reserve is sure to be equally delicious for both connoisseurs and those just discovering whisky.During the early 19th century, illegal distilleries were commonplace throughout the Speyside region of Scotland. In 1823, however, Alexander Gordon pushed the Excise Act of 1823 through Parliament. The Excise Act allowed illegal distillers throughout Scotland to apply for and obtain licenses to legally distill spirits. In 1824, a businessman named George Smith applied for one of the first licenses in the Speyside region of Scotland and opened the doors to The Glenlivet Distillery. For nearly two centuries, The Glenlivet Distillery has been producing the "single malt whisky that started it all."
