Serge from Whiskyfun says:
Chivas The Century of Malts (40%, OB) This one is a blend of 100 different malts that was launched quite a while ago, so it’s technically a Pure Malt – sorry, a Blended Malt Whisky. I'm curious because they are now selling the blended Chivas 18 yo at a higher price, which could be bad news for the 'Century' regarding their confidence in its quality. Colour: pure gold. Nose: fresh and rather clean, but curiously simple and undemanding. Vague hints of sherry and freshly cut apple, together with a bit of caramel and fresh cream, but not much else. Was it really worth the trouble – and the fuss? Mouth: rather bold attack but again, really un-definite. Notes of sherry and wood, together with some toffee and dried orange… That’s all. Of course it’s drinkable, but it isn’t any better than a simple Single Malt like, say Tamnavulin or Tamdhu. A perfect example of a 70 points malt.
