Chivas Regal, 12 Year Old, in Gift Box
Chivas. One of the most ubiquitous spirit brands on the planet, Chivas Regal Blended Scotch Whisky has seen both lean and prosperous times over the last century.
Regarded as the ‘original luxury Scotch’, the brand found its identity in a grocery and wine merchants rather than the traditional notable distillery. Beginning in 1801, John Forrest set up this emporium in Aberdeen which was then passed to a gentleman by the name of William Edwards and then finally James Chivas in 1838.
So what is in the blend? Well, as with pretty much all blended Scotch whisky, the blend recipes are proprietary. But with that being said, the Chivas home distillery of Strathisla makes up the core of the malt. Confirmation from the brand mentions the inclusion of the distilleries of Longmorn, Glenlivet, Braeval, Miltonduff and Allt-a-Bhaine.
Appearance: light, straw gold to amber resin, thin multiple legs when agitated
Nose: Heather honey, hay, butterscotch & light citrus undertones
