Review video: – Ralfy – Glen Garioch Founder’s Reserve – YouTube

Over 4 years since Ralfy’s review and the good news is that this Founder’s Reserve is still bottled at 48%. Unfortunately there remains no mention on the bottle of “natural colour”. Oh well, maybe one day! The Whisky Bible 2013 rating suggests that standards have remained much the same but it’s not always that Jim Murray and Ralfy agree. That’s the joy about whisky – one person’s jam is another person’s marmite. Actually, it’s a pain in the backside because no two sets of tastebuds are the same. So you can’t be certain you’ll like a whisky just because someone else says it’s delicious, such is the complexity of a whisky’s taste. Reviews can help as a guide but it’s up to everyone’s individual taste to discover what they like.
