Whisky Reviews for Chivas Regal 25-year-old

13 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.08 points

  1. gallfux did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Very fruity. And a lot of honey sweetness. The finish is also something, I call it, more elegant than the previously-tried Johnnie Walker XR21 (WID: 51634) and Johnnie Walker Blue Label (WID: 51152). The Chivas Regal is already quite good but also very pleasing. Overall, but the best of the three blends.
    But also here. I prefer to grab a single malt.

    Big impression on this 25 years. We recognize quite the 18 years with a little more power, more depth and a nice peaty finish. Qualitatively, the jump is not huge compared to 18, this being said.
    Enthusiasm 3/5

  6. Andytka3 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Nose:- Appealing grapefruits and honey, entice with mist of muskiness linger, packed with rich caramel too. Complex and lovely. Palate:- Good weight and elegant, full of flavors and not aggressive,
    allowing you the time to taste it. Firm woody character coated with burnt
    honey. Well built and slender.

    Finish:- Velvet, smooth and lengthy.

    Delicious but not affordable to have it everyday. :P

    Blind tasting, sample provided by Defeatless.
    • Nose
      Old and dignified. It's mellow and friendly, full of waxy (beeswax) barley, some vanilla cream, and ample fruit (tinned peach dominate, but there is also pineapple, later also cherries and strawberries). Furthermore, there is a sensible level of grassiness, which makes this whisky fresh. Gets fruitier and sweeter associated by the minute. After a while, white raisins can be detected too. Then there is a faint hint of cinnamon.  It's extremely fruity and friendly, and must be the result of an active cask. A good refill hogshead maybe?
    • Taste
      Less
      sweet than expected, with a pleasant dryness. Polished oak, ginger, vanilla
      cream, coconut and pineapple. The grass gets louder, together with the pepper.
    • Finish
      Rather
      herbal (grass, coriander), with soft barley, white grape seeds and a pinch of
      pepper.

    It is nice blend certainly but the palate while nice taste wise ia a little thin.
    • Nose
      Quite restrained with notes of toffee, white fruits (pear), shoe polish and a few meat notes.
    • Taste
      Smooth but there is some noticeable bitterness. I get notes of ginger, dark orange marmalade, a little fudge and then syrup flapjack cake.

      The bitter notes subside after a while but it is a little thin on the palate for a supposed 25 year whisky.
    • Finish
      Pretty long and quite pleasant.

  10. Defeatless scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Nose: complex en intruding.Sherried oak, fruity syrup. Not sure how to describe, it's quite a general fruity smell. Some mint leaf. After a while some grain comes in and gives it it's typical grain smell.

    Taste: Fruity, sweet and sour. Then a hint of grain and than a bitterness comes in. Some liquorish, wood, harsh from pine-trees. orange marmalade and lemon zest.

    Body: Medium.

    Finish: Medium-long. Little dry. Canned fruit juice, hint of orange marmalade. And some banana.

    Price: it's a trend to overprice a little more older whisky's, this on is filling the bill.

    Presentation: very chique. Interesting not in the book, but you should just read is after tasting.
