Chivas Regal 18 Year

Chivas Regal 18.jpg

Please take into account that these are my personal tasting notes and personal experience, as such you may interpret this whisky very differently from me.

Colour:

Golden amber.

Nose:

Fruity, sweet, creamy, vanilla and caramel.

Palate:

Slightly bitter at first but quickly turning sweet and fruity with a citrus edge and a touch of oak a hint of smoke.

Finish:

Long and drying with more oak and some spice coming through, surprisingly nutty.

Overall:

Very enjoyable and one I’d love to try a bigger sample of. I tried this at a Whisky Lounge Blending Workshop and so didn’t get to pour as large a dram as I’m used to! From what I did try though it seemed to have a lot of depth and I imagine it has more to it with the addition of water.

 

Notes:

Taken from the Chivas Website:

 

Nose: Rich, indulgent, multi-layered aromas with hints of dried fruits, buttery toffee and dark chocolate.

Taste: A velvety, dark chocolate palate yields to elegant floral notes and a wisp of sweet, mellow smokiness.

Finish: Extremely warm, long finish.
