Each drop of the Chivas Regal 18 year Old Blended Scotch whisky has neem finished in Japanese Oak casks, a rarity even amongst Japanese whiskies.
These remarkable casks are made using delicate Japanese Mizunara Oak that are up to 200 years old. Making them not only difficult to source but also difficult to work with. Handcrafted by a team of talented and highly experienced master coopers, the oak imparts wonderfully well-balanced notes of sweet clementine, pears, vanilla and exotic spices.
Exclusively created for travellers.
Nose: A sweet opening with honey, pears, ripe apples. Following on are exotic spices of sandalwood, vanilla and a hint of cloves, balanced by citrus orange and lemon rinds. Impressive maturity develops around ripe banana, and a subtle nuttiness.
Taste: Sweet clementine, orange, nutmeg, almonds vanilla and homemade raspberry jam appear in a complex arrival, flowing into stewed apples, honey and a tantalising aromatic oak character.
Finish: Spices and a sensation of incense perfectly balanced with delicate fruitiness. An appetizing dryness provides complexity into the long finish.
