Chivas Regal 18 Year Old Reviews
Tasting Notes by Billy A
Nose: Lightly sour fruit (cherries and raspberries), with milky coffee, chocolate touches and oaky vanilla.
Palate: Oak focused, with cinnamon and nutmeg spice, hints of dried fruit, and lashings of vanilla. A touch of water opens it up to reveal a creamy mouthfeel as well as touches of linseed oil and woody spice.
Finish: Medium length and warming, with oaky spice.

One of the greatest whisky I have tasted very smooth and flavoured, very pleasurable and enjoyable to drink
Great blended Scotch. Smooth. Balanced.
I wouldn't call it a great blend, let alone it is far from being excellent; however, it is significantly more mature and hence has a more mature character than its 12 YO brother (more depth & complexity). If I were to buy a Chivas, this would be my choice.
The 18 yo is the best damned bottle out there. Hands down
The sense of depth and the lasting woody taste combined with smoothness, to me, makes this Chivas unrivaled.
This is not bad whisky though in this age range try instead Ballantines 17 YO.
It's sweet, smooth to the point of being boring and a tad bit grainy on the finish! Totally inoffensive. So many great vatted blends and single malts at same price point. Look elsewhere.
I found the 12 yo quite unexciting, but this one is in a different class. It does have that touch of grain whiskey flavor, which in a way (for me) makes it more classic scotch than a malt, it's round and supple, but I find myself wanting it on the rocks.
I gave this bottle a try. Given its age its quite rich, and smooth. Less harsh than the 12 year. Not overly complex, there's some woody oak, vanilla, caramel, maybe hints of spice. Pretty good.
