Proof66 Notes

The Glenlivet Founder's Reserve was first released in 2015 and added to the Glenlivet "classic" range of scotch. It considers itself a delicate scotch, likely owing to the relatively low bottling proof of 80 (most single malt scotch is bottled at 86). It is aged in American oak (likely ex-bourbon casks) for an unspecified period of time.

The Glenlivet Distillery (note the use of the indefinite article "the" allowed by court decree in 1884) is the top-selling single malt scotch in the world. It is often considered the classic Speyside, producing unpeated (that is, non-smoky) scotch whisky. The name translates as "valley of the smooth flowing one." They are proud of their mineral rich water from "Josie's well" and their tall copper stills, producing lighter vapors for smoother, more buoyant whisky. The brand is owned by French-based Pernod-Ricard.
