The Glenlivet

Special thanks to The Glenlivet for extending this event invitation.

This very evening, The Glenlivet introduces a new bottle of whisky to its Penang clientele: The Glenlivet Founder's Reserve. Held under the posh setting of Thirty Two At The Mansion, there could not have been a better setting for The Glenlivet to launch this latest addition to its fine range of Scotch whiskies.
Whisky is an alcoholic beverage which is fermented from spirit, which in turn is distilled from malted barley. In essence, whisky is solely derived from natural ingredients: barley, yeast and water. Spirit is aged in wooden casks for at least 3 years, but in practice it takes 5 years or longer to produce exquisite whiskies. Older whiskies tend to fetch higher prices, not necessarily because they are "better", but primarily due to their relative rarity.
By law, Scotch whisky must be distilled, aged and bottled in Scotland. This is what The Glenlivet is renowned for. Founded in 1824, The Glenlivet Distillery in Banffshire has earned great prestige for bottling the finest Scotch whiskies of the land. The Glenlivet only produces single malt whiskies, which means every drop in the bottle comes from a single distillery. Aged in first-fill American oak barrels, The Glenlivet has become the benchmark for all Scotch whiskies in the market today.
Each bottle of Scotch whisky, sometimes just called Scotch, is often associated with a guaranteed age. This age statement refers to the youngest drop of whisky in the bottle. Paying tribute to the founder's vision nearly 200 years ago, The Glenlivet Founder's Reserve has been bottled with no age statement. No age statement affords the Master Distiller more degrees of freedom in blending older whiskies with younger ones.
The Glenlivet Founder's Reserve is golden in color and has sweet floral aroma reminiscent of citrus fruits. The combination of balanced flavor and creamy mouthfeel make this whisky quite agreeable even among casual drinkers. Although hardcore Scotch drinkers may prefer their whiskies to be served neat, the 40% alcohol content may be overpowering for others. By adding some water, The Glenlivet Founder's Reserve is able to express its flavors in a multifaceted fashion. The recommended proportion is 3 parts whisky to 1 part water, but the ideal mixture actually varies from person to person.
Other whisky products that people have enjoyed over the ages are The Glenlivet 12 Years Of Age, The Glenlivet 15 Years Of Age, The Glenlivet 18 Years Of Age, and The Glenlivet XXV. There is no absolute consensus on the best age statement; it is understood that each person has his/her own preferred cup of tea.
