Royal Salute was created in 1953 to mark the coronation of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. To celebrate the 60th anniversary of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation, Royal Salute is proud to present the Diamond Tribute. The Diamond Tribute takes its name from the most precious of gems and is in-keeping with the Royal Salute tradition of expertly blending only the most precious aged whiskies.
The rarest of these have been selected from the locked Royal Salute vault at Strathisla - the oldest working distillery in the Highlands - where these casks rest under careful guard and watch until they have reached a minimum of 21 years of age. The Diamond Tribute combines age and craftsmanship to create a Scotch whisky of finesse and rich complexity.
Nose: Concentrated rich fruit aromas of peaches and sweet poached pears, complimented by a sensation of sherry and a wonderful spicy liquorice tang.
Taste: Full and exceptionally sweet echoing the taste. Rich creamy toffee flavours intermingled with juicy moist raisins.
Finish: Very long sweet with a luscious warmth.
