Chivas Ultis is a very good balanced, delicately sweet and very smooth whisky. It’s made for pleasure!
- Very complicated and balanced whiskey. One of the best of balanced whiskeys. Infinite aroma, very seductive
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.
Juicy, at the beginning it tastes like medical herbs then white chocolate, bisquite, orange.
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.
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.
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.
Medium in length, quite drying and with a strange floral/perfume note hidden amongst toffee and bitter spice flavours.
