The wonderful bouquet includes scents of bacon fat, honey, orange rind with deeper smells of black pepper, cinnamon, vanilla bean and pipe tobacco.

The oak element really emerges in the aftertaste, ideally completing this sensational blended Scotch. One of the finest blended Scotches in the world.— P.P. (12/1/2008) — 96-100

I usually prefer Royal Salute but it has not been available. I tried this 18 year old Chivas and have been truly amazed. Somehow, I was able to wait for my friends to gather after my Chivas arrived. It was well worth the wait. Four friends and I were, and are, truly amazed. Thanks for the great price also.

Scotch Whisky Blend of the Year, Malt Advocate Whisky Awards, 2007
The Chivas brother’s fame spread repidly and in 1843, they were awarded the first of many Royal Warrants to supply goods to Queen Victoria. At the time, Scotch whisky was popular, but not as we know it today. Whisky was often drunk without the benefit of long ageing it oak casks, making it a somewhat unrefined taste.
In the 1850’s James Chivas saw an oppeortunity to create a style of whisky that would please his more discerning customers combining soft grain whisky and robust single malts to create a Scotch whisky that was both well balalnced and smooth.
When it launched 1909, Chivas Regal was the world’s first luxury whisky. The 25 year old luxury blend, created for the sophisticated palates of America’s East Coast high society, swifty won its first international following. There had never been a whisky like it. Such was its success that, within months, demand outstripped supply.
