Smooth but lacking... This whisky has a decent level of complexity and I think Jason's review nails a lot of the tasting notes. In addition, it is very smooth. However for me the 40‰ abv absolutely kills its potential, it feels watered down and over thin.
Whisky was nice.
We had this bottle last year and it's was perfect 5*
This was my introduction bottle to Chivas and made me purchase the Chivas Regal 25 which became a staple bottle on my shelf. Definitely one of my favorite 21 year olds which is entirely smooth and enjoyable to drink. Smells wonderful in your glass and makes you appreciate the work that went into this blend which was placed inside this beautiful bottle once held in your hands. Put your hand to your hairline and salute.
"Nose" (undiluted): Dandelion, honey, a wee peat and ocean air laden with salt. Not a show stopper. Pleasant but that's about it. "Palate" (undiluted): Dollops of wild honey on crunchy toast, zinging with tarragon, dill and other exotic spices. Snuff box from the Orient. Cardamom. Some complexity mid-palate. "Finish" (undiluted): Big malty notes, mint chocolate, heavy oak and sweet grains with good shakes of freshly ground black pepper.
