A classic example of the understated, elegant approach of the old Chivas blends.
Aged 21 Years
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Understated and takes time to open. Almond skin, dried peels, honeycomb, light smoke, bruised apple, nut bowl, wax. Mature.
Palate: Lemon, lime, then marzipan, coconut, hay, nutmeg deepening into honey, cooked raspberry.
Finish: Anise/basil. Expansive and complex.
Comment: A classic example of the understated, elegant approach of the old Chivas blends.
Nose: Distinguished. Intense. Old library. Pot pourri. Dundee cake. Orange flan. Pepper. Fresh almond.
Palate: Smooth and silky. Dried apricot. Raisins in rum. Walnut and date biscuit.
Finish: Everlasting. Spicy. Ginger. Slowly vanishing on a luscious praline note.
Comment: Antique shop aromas. Oak and fruit locked in a sensual embrace.
