Crafted by John & Alexander Manson since 1797, this selection of Non Chill-Filtered Glen Garioch illustrates the distinct house character- honey sweetness, hints of heather and just a touch of spice.
The launch of the Founder's Reserve celebrates the distillery's long standing tradition of craftsmanship to produce the finest Highland single malts - taking the skills and experience cultured over the last 200 years to produce an outstanding whisky.
Nose - Sweet vanilla and butterscotch show the influence of North American Oak with fruitier green apple and grapefruit coming through at the rear.
Palate - At first the palate is sweet with hints of buttercream and vanilla. As this begins to ebb, the fruitiness of the green apple skin and citrus cleanliness leaves the palate refreshed
