Comment: The first NAS Chivas Regal, and with a greater emphasis on sherry wood than usual. A valuable addition to the line-up.

Palate: Lots of Christmas pudding flavours to savour: rich stewed fruits, and sweet sherry spice.
Finish: Long and rich, with a hint of spice at the end.
Comment: Rich and sweet: a great after-dinner dram.
