  • N: Husky hessian oily malt with a mineral sweetness. Time reveals more [bourbon) malty sweetness. I pick up creamy smoke just before sipping.
  • T: Almost hollow inner yet with a firmer oily savoury-bitter outer layer.
  • F: Husky, waxy-dry malt. Long waxy malty mouthfeel finish with dry cream latterly.
  • C: Really good sipper as it goes. And who said blends are only for drinkers?

Nose

Etwas Sherry, Roggen, Gummibärchen und irgendwie muffig.

Taste

Hier finden sich die Gummibärchen und der Roggen wieder. Auch die Muffigkeit bleibt.

Finish

Kurz und trockener werdend.

Comments

Für mich eine Enttäuschung. Für diesen Preis kann man auch einen besseren Single Malt kaufen.

Color
Jonquiripe corn
Nose

Très malté, de l'orge grillée, du bois toasté, des herbes, de la griotte. Ensemble assez alcooleux.

Taste

Assez facile, bien que dilué, plutôt sec, bois vanille, de la prune et de la griotte.

Finish

Assez court, sur le bois, la griotte, une pointe acidulée étonnante.



Comments

Rien d'exceptionnel mais rien d'honteux non plus. Un blend qui fait le travail, mais on peut faire tellement mieux avec des whiskies de 18 ans...

Bouteille achetée pour la naissance de ma fille et dégustée entre collègues . Un blend de luxe très riche, au goût de toffee. Rapport qualité/prix imbattable. Nez : caramel, chocolat au lait derrière. Tabac, bois sec. Bouche : zeste d'orange Finale : Poivre, longue.


Enthousiasme 4/5

Another blend from Pernod Ricard who currently own 14 distilleries, all in Speyside except for Scapa, and Strathclyde grain distillery. 

Created by Colin Scott in 1997, a deconstruction tasting/masterclass of the Chivas Regal 18yo will take you through the recipe in parts. Using over 20 single malts & grains from various distilleries including Glenlivet, Aberlour, Strathisla, Tormore, Longmorn, Allt-a-Bhainne, Glenburgie, Glenugie, Miltonduff,….. the Chivas 18yo is driven by Strathisla & Longmorn single malt and Strathclyde grain.

Having recently tried the Chivas 12yo and found it ‘dull-as and hugely disappointing’ WB, my expectations for the 18yo were low but mind open.


N: More fruity than the last three blends with a generally robust sherried=bourbon maltiness and additional notes of smelly socks.

T: Nothing specific but it's generally very tasty.

F: Sweet aniseed, with a bitter note under-pinning the final throes.

C: It’s tasty but it doesn’t quite ‘cut the mustard’ compared alongside the Ballantine's and the even better Dewar's. It's the first of the night that's most obviously ‘blend’ - grainy, soft & easy, which makes it very drinkable of course. Blog.

Donut
Chivas Regal is one of the world’s bestselling blends. Their range has a classic 12 years old that can easily be found in the supermarket, but they also have an 18 year old and even a 25 year old. In my glass sits the 18 years old, composed of more than 20 whisky’s, both malt and grain. Did you know, by the way, that Chivas actually means ‘narrow place’ in Gaelic? Something for your next whisky quiz? The signature malt in this blend is Strathisla.

The nose is fruity and sweet on apricots, vanilla and pears. It has some freshly baked bread as well. Wait… no… it is a donut with pink icing!

The viscosity leaves a lot to be desired. This needs a lot more body. Having said that, it has a peppery bite before the fruit shines through. Think oranges, honey and… there – the donut returns. Reminds me a bit of orange lemonade, actually. The second sip becomes extremely sweet. All the way in the back is a single grain of salt.

In the finish, which is rather soft, I seem to get a hint of peat. But it is gone before I can think about it more.

I am certain this would go well with a dessert, but as a whisky I find it lacking. Too sweet and simply not interesting. I would rather spend my 60 EUR on something else.
