This non-aged-statement The Glenlivet launched in March 2015 replaces The Glenlivet 12 Year Old as the brand's entry level core expression. Predominantly drawn from ex-bourbon casks with selective use of first-fill American oak casks, Founder’s Reserve honours The Glenlivet’s founder George Smith.

Clear, golden amber.


Green apple, cereal, fruit cake, creamy orange and apricot with faint pear drops, sea salt and vanilla. Water reveals more orange zest.


Red apple, toffee apple, Barley sugar, pear and cleansing zesty citrus with vanilla, cracked black pepper and faint creamy chocolate ice-cream.


Barley sugar, red apple and black pepper with chocolate ice-cream and faint anise. More appley with water.


Glenlivet's entry level core expression is presented in attractive baby blue packaging, and it is a generally appealing malt with notes of apple, pear and chocolate ice-cream.
