Founder’s Reserve,
Aged 10 Years

The Balvenie Founder’s Reserve is a classic 10 year old single malt Scotch whisky which was created by
The Balvenie Malt Master, David Stewart, from a marriage of
The Balvenie single malt matured in bourbon casks with that matured in sherry casks, or butts.

A member of The Balvenie range since the early 1980s, Founder’s Reserve has now retired. Although The Balvenie Distillery keeps alive all the traditional crafts of whisky making, introducing new tastes, ages and expressions is a long established tradition. This does mean we sometimes have to let old friends go.

On the nose, The Balvenie Founder’s Reserve is rich and complex with honey and orange notes and just a hint of peat. Its taste is full-bodied honeyed sweetness, with light spicy notes and a hint of sherry fruitiness. Its finish is long with a pleasant lingering richness.
