Chivas Regal 12 is a blend of many different malt and grain Scotch whiskies, matured for at least 12 years. This rich, smooth blend combines style with substance and tradition.
More of those banana chips showing through on the palate, this time there’s a creamy hit of barley malt too, pepped up with a little allspice. Notes of ground walnut and caramel.
For James Chivas, there were two fundamental principles of blending: ‘old, mature stocks and a distinct Speyside accent’. Master Blender Colin Scott adheres to those same principles today, with whiskies at least 12 years old with a generous measure of Speyside malts.
Colour: Radiant, warm amber.
Nose: An aromatic infusion of wild herbs, heather, honey and orchard fruits.
Taste: Round and creamy with a full, rich taste of honey and ripe apples, with vanilla, hazelnut and butterscotch notes.
