CHIVAS REGAL 25YO 40% 700ML
Enticingly fruity, Chivas 25 is a smooth, rounded and luxuriously long blend.
Chivas 25 was the world’s first luxury whisky, reaching American shores in 1909 as the first whisky to be aged for at least 25 years. After taking New York by storm, World War 1 and the prohibition meant that Chivas 25 disappeared and became a highly coveted collector’s item. It wasn’t until 1950 that Chivas returned as a 12-year-old whisky. In 2007, Chivas' fifth Master Blender Colin Scott, who inspired by the original recipe, re- created Chivas Regal 25 to celebrate where the story began.
Nose: Rich, nutty and thick with notes of malt and berry fruits, hints of liquorice, raspberries and sweet porridge oats.
Palate: Soft and gentle but it builds with an elegant toffee-like character. Hints of boiled sweets, aniseed and custard.
Finish: Abrupt, but earthy, with butterscotch on the tail.
