'The blend for grown-ups, for people who have made their rites of passage and are ready to enjoy their success. Sweet, but not cloying. Buxom, but not overblown. Balanced. 9/10.' Paul Pacult in Whisky Magazine April 2000
A large 2 litre bottle of Chivas Regal 12 year old, the brand's flagship expression and one of the best selling brands in the world. The spiritual home of the blend is Strathisla distillery, one of the many malts contained within.
Jim Murray was very taken with this recently-launched Chivas Regal 25yo, describing it thus: "beautiful delivery...unbelievably juicy and mouthwatering...unadulterated class...leaves you demanding another glass. Brilliant!" Whisky Bible 2010: Scotch Blend of the Year (18 Years & Over); 95 Points
A very old original bottle of Chivas Regal 25yo in the unusual 1.13 litre size favoured in the USA. A bona fide collector's item, this is a beautiful piece of whisky history. Chivas Regal 25yo was introduced in the USA in 1909 and was a roaring success before the advent of Prohibition following the Volstead Act in 1919, but was not re-introduced follwoing repeal in the 1930s. Logically, this suggests that the whisky in this bottle must have been distilled towards the end of the 19th century.
