Whisky Reviews for Chivas Regal 18-year-old

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 73.22 points

  1. Thermidor scored this whisky 72 points Expert Senior

    This 18yo blend is close to the more familiar 12yo (73 pts.), but even though this one has some richer notes than its younger sibling, I'm docking a point because there is a certain unpleasantness to the taste that isn't present in the younger one.
    • Nose
      A spey profile, with vague cheap fruit juice notes, a bit of smoke, and then this greasy, slightly dirty leathery note I associate with poor grain whisky.
    • Taste
      Some odd stale leathery taste, followed by a bit of peat and dirty grain notes. The malt side of this blend is not bad at all, with a bit of cheap chocolate, from sherry I presume, and a pleasing mouthfeel, but the grain is really not holding up its side of the bargain here.
    • Finish
      Echoes of copper and dirty leather.

  2. Dunamys scored this whisky 76 points Newbie

    First off, lovely colour! Rich golden colour. Very fruity on the nose. First I taste some hay and even almost a cannabis flavor. In the aftertaste a young fresh weat flavor kicks in.
