As one of the best-selling Blended Scotches in the world, Chivas Regal 12 certainly stands out from the crowd of cheap and low quality alternatives. Fruity and slightly aromatic notes with honey, caramel and vanilla characterize the nose. Don't expect any exiting features or great complexity. The lead malt Strathisla comes through on the palate: it tastes light and sweet with creamy toffee, red apples and pleasant hints of nuttiness. Old refill cask bitterness remains of a quickly gone finish. A flawless but altogether boring blend with age statement.

[60% malt to 40% grain]


N: A light, vanilla nose with a softish egg white note. 

T: A little raw

F: Still raw-ish with a little dry vanilla.

C: A dry-sour modern blend. Dull-as and hugely disappointing. Let's try the 1970's presentation: [no WB page for it just yet]

Fait très dilué, sans grand intérêt mais pas de mauvaises notes non plus.
Un peu de bois, de caramel, d'herbes coupées, quelques touches d'agrumes.

N- Cardboard and rusty nail. Soft floral and honey, not as pungent as I thought with oily grain and hidden candy sweet.

P- Fruity sweet, vanilla and sour plum with fresh oak and husky.

F- Medium, minty caramel, ginger warm with somehow green and oak-ish spirit mouth coating. Balance and good basic blend.

— at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.

Vůně je hodně subtilní - je cítit vanilka, slad, vosk a něco málo koření

Taste

V chuti olejnatá, lehce nasládlá - dřevitá, vanilková, karamelová, čajová s trochou nugátu

Finish

Ve středně dlouhém dozvuku je cítit opět vanilka, ořechy, karamel a trocha soli

Comments

Ničím vybočující blend, co neurazí a ani nenadchne a s cenou, která je jednoznačně lehce mimo
