    One has to constantly remind oneself while drinking that this is a blended scotch. So voluminous and balanced, masterfully composed. If you like sweet fruits and honey, you will get their money's worth. The barely 40% alcohol content matches this exuberant tropical fireworks. Nevertheless, a slightly higher alcohol content could possibly have contributed an interesting contrast point.

    Conclusion: Those who have always wanted to be like the gods and to sip nectar and ambrosia should resort to the Royal Salute Hundred Cask. It's hard to get much closer. A more than successful creation by Chivas, which more than lives up to its pompous appearance and royal honors. But you really have to want that one-dimensional sweetie. Friends of smoky, peaty, edgy and spicy whiskeys should avoid him.
    • Nose
      Color: amber, almost bronze.
      Overripe, tropical fruits, apricot, papaya, honeydew melon. A touch of cinnamon. Despite the tropical association but not warm, but frosted as for a beguiling cocktail.
    • Taste
      The fruity sweetness continues. Is reinforced by sugar candy, honey printen, Christmas spices. Prunes come after, some cocoa, vanilla, malt. Then clear oak tones, just in time, before it gets too cheesy. Secretly one waits for the sharpness, on the Graineinfluß, these are noticeable, but well concealed.
    • Finish
      Warm and extremely long. Syrup-like, like caramel sweets and liquid, heated honey. Orange peels and a hint of sage and anise can be guessed.
