Exclusively created for travellers, each drop of this Chivas Regal 18 Year Old Blended Scotch whisky has been finished in First Fill Japanese Oak casks, a rarity even amongst Japanese whiskies. These remarkable casks are made using delicate Japanese Mizunara Oak that are up to 200 years old, making them not only difficult to source but also difficult to work with. The oak imparts wonderfully well-balanced notes of sweet clementine, pears, vanilla and exotic spices. The resulting finish is an intriguing marriage of Scottish complexity and passion with Japanese elegance and refinement.
Nose: A sweet opening with honey, pears, ripe apples. Following on are exotic spices of sandalwood, vanilla and a hint of cloves, balanced by citrus orange and lemon rinds. Impressive maturity develops around ripe banana, and a subtle nuttiness.Taste: Sweet clementine, orange, nutmeg, almonds, vanilla and homemade raspberry jam appear in a complex arrival, flowing into stewed apples, honey and a tantalising aromatic oak character.Finish: Spices and a sensation of incense perfectly balanced with delicate fruitiness. An appetizing dryness provides complexity into the long finish.
