Balvenie Founders Reserve Bottling Note
A very rare edition of Balvenie Founders Reserve. Packaged in a Cognac style bottle. The more recent edition of this has already become discontinued, this was even before that, that's how rare this is.
Found this in my father's collection ...
As a doctor he was given a lot of whisky but rarely drinks so I got to open this beautiful whisky with him at Christmas.
The smell is one of the finest things I've ever experienced, exactly as per the tasting notes: like warm old leather.
The first taste is very subtle, arrives fast and leaves as quick but then the aftertaste lingers just on the tongue almost unexpectedly.
Thanks Dad, what a dram to share

Very very nice, wish I knew how much it was worth before I undid it though
