The Glenlivet Founder’s Reserve 1824

Country: Scotland
Region: Speyside
Type: Single Malt
Bottler: Distiller
ABV: 55.4%
Score: 94 points

Only 1,824 bottles were produced to mark the distillery’s expansion in 2010. Officially, it carries no age statement, but is a 21-year-old malt with a predominance of sherry casks. The nose is creme brulee, vanilla, pears, and peaches, while the taste has a great mouthfeel. Soft spices work well with a hint of caramel, figs, and dark chocolate. Water opens up subtle citrus notes, especially lemon zest. The finish is spicy, nutty, and lingering with a touch of cinnamon.
