    Very complicated and balanced whiskey. One of the best of balanced whiskeys. Infinite aroma, very seductive
    • Nose
      Мedical Herbs, Motherwort, Sage, Mint, Caraway. Then it comes red currant, smell of malt, light smell of orange. Very complicated and balanced. Also it appears white pepper.
    • Taste
      Juicy, at the beginning it tastes like medical herbs then white chocolate, bisquite, orange.
    • Finish
      Soft, deep and long lasting, honey, light picky elegant bitter

    Chivas Regal Ultis is a well-constructed blended malt, but as is often the case, the story behind the bottle is much more cohesive than the liquid experience itself. Ultis is far from exceptional, in fact, I find it a little mundane – there’s just no wow factor, and to my mind, any bottle costing £170 should be stimulating a reasonable amount of wow. ‘Nice’ is just not good enough for that price when you consider the wide variety of alternative options available.

    • Nose
      Pronounced and interesting flavours. Commencing with incredibly prominent coconut (almost coconut oil), vanilla, caramel and honey, we then move into a more fruity vein – red apples and particularly peaches (deep and intense, like a fruit tea infusion) alongside strawberries, and other sherry-cask suggesting small berries. Light herbalness and menthol are joined by delicate spicing – cinnamon and cardamom. A lively and welcoming nose, but one which doesn’t scream opulence – or age.
    • Taste
      Underpowered at 40% but with a generally soft and smooth texture that’s pleasant enough Honey, vanilla and toffee are combined with a really big dry tobacco note – leafy, slightly astringent and rather bark-like. Fruits are now slightly more tropical in nature – pineapple and papaya – and are joined with greater cask influence – ginger, cinnamon and some peppercorns.
    • Finish
      Medium in length, quite drying and with a strange floral/perfume note hidden amongst toffee and bitter spice flavours.

    Quite well. There were in Japan for 21,000 yen, about 180 € for the liter. Quite expensive...
    • Nose
      Sherry, soft, very pleasant
    • Taste
      Very fruity, intense sherry, but not intrusive
    • Finish
      Long and warm
