- http://www.weinkenner.de/2015/glenlivet-founders-reserve-im-vergleich-zum-12-jaehrigen-vorgaenger-36862/ Color: light gold
Nose: Green, sweet nose with apple aromas, lots of sugar candy and fresh green barley. There are also hints of gooseberry and slightly spicy-salty flavors. Now switch to limes, water and honey melons, cream and butter toast.
Taste: First thin with lime juice, salty lemon extract, fresh grass and juicy herbs, accompanied by green notes of peppermint, eucalyptus and a hint of vanilla.
Finish: Medium long - a little tart and fading, with lemon juice diluted with water, soft butter, some wood and bitter, fresh herbs.
78 points (nose: 77 / taste: 80 / finish: 78)
