Glenlivet

Posted 27 July 2017

At the end of 2010, Glenlivet launched the 'Founder's Reserve'. A 21 year old whisky, bottled at 55.6% ABV, with an outturn of just 1824 bottles (a reference to the year the distillery opened) and presented in a smart wooden box with clever magnetic clasps. It was really rather a good thing indeed. In 2015 Glenlivet released a new Founder's Reserve. Bottled at 40% it comes wrapped in paper not too dissimilar to a hobos’ brown-bagged takeout. It's a totally different thing, and unfortunately not a particularly good thing.

There’s only two overtly sherried numbers in this month’s out turn – this 10 year old Glenlivet is one of them. Drawn from a 1996 1st fill butt. Deep, Rich & Dried Fruits profile.

This Glenlivet was distilled in June of 1972 and then matured for 17 years (presumable in ex-bourbon) until being bottled in September of 1990.

Glenlivet was the first distillery to take out a licence after the 1823 Excise Act became law – a milestone which marks the official starting point for the modern whisky industry (and a move away from illicit distilling). The initial success of Glenlivet resulted in many other distilleries adopting the name ‘Glenlivet’ as a prefix to their own distillery name in an attempt to muscle in on the success of the brand. After much legal wrangling, a compromise was found – whilst other distilleries could still use the prefix, only Glenlivet could call itself ‘The Glenlivet’.

It’s time to commence the joy that is the annual Christmas calendar - and this year we’re going full Boutique-y for the next 24 days. The Dramble will be bringing you tasting notes of each and every dram in the lovely looking Boutique-y Whisky Company calendar, posting the following day – to give us time to sample and write our notes, and of course, to not spoil the surprise for those of you who open your doors a little later in the day. So, deep breath, let’s make a start…..innnnn one…..
