Replacing the much loved Glenlivet 12 Year Old, The Glenlivet Founder's Reserve is the newest whisky from the world famous Glenlivet distillery.

The Glenlivet Founder's Reserve has been created in honour of their pioneering founder George Smith, who envisaged a whisky with fruit sweetness and smooth characteristics way back in 1824.

The whisky has caused a bit of controversy among the whisky community as it replaces the distillery core expression, The Glenlivet 12 Year Old. The choice to make Founder's Reserve a No-Age-Statement whisky has been met with differing opinions.

Having tasted the whisky for ourselves though, we feel that the Founder's Reserve is a suitable replacement for the 12 year old and an adventurous step forward for the distillery in an ever changing industry.
