Insider knowledge: Chivas Regal 12 Year Old whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Chivas Regal 12 Year Old whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
Nose: Quite light, feinty. Cigar box. Fruity, spice, honey, herbal.
Palate: Full, rounded, fruity, nutty, vanilla, barley.
Finish: Medium, touch of honey and fruit.
Had a hope for a classy dram but this was not quite that. It's a bit cheapy, I mean a strong burn feeling, a tad bland nose and lack of complexity on the palate. I enjoyed Dewar's White Label & Teacher's much more.
i like it
12 yr - "premium" vs. "blended" - what's the difference? Had a 1.75 litre (with handle on bottle) with "premium scotch whiskey" on label. Just bought another 1.75 litre (with no handle) with "blended scotch whiskey" on label.
A really fine blend that you can spend time with finding touches of, amongst the usual stuff, a little smoke, salt and lavender. But, OMG, the lable and box! Hand me my buckler serf for I will forego to the Co-Op.(other supermarkets apply and can be smite'd equally)
Sweet, Smooth and a hint of woodiness. Loved it..
Hadn't had Chivas for 20 years, saw a half bottle knocked down to less than a tenner so I though why not? Glad I did, a really pleasant drop, if you can get over the single vs blended snobbery. On taste alone I thought is was very good and would buy again.
Did not worth the money. Never buying this one again
it's a good blend. It is overrated but still it makes for a good decent whiskey.
It's smooth on the rocks or not. I really don't like any whiskey on the rocks but I like to see the taste differences. There is better, but this a good start. I my self just started to drink whiskey. Do like Johnnie Walker.
I'm from Sydney Australia do you deliver here.
New aviation transport regulations have made it very difficult to ship outside the UK and Europe recently. Shipping to Australia is currently unavailable, but we are working on a solution which should be ready within the next few weeks so please do check back regularly. - The Chaps at Master of Malt
people who say its cheap need to fix up!!! its better than anything I've had. chivas Regal is the best!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
First time dipping into a scotch that costs more than thirty dollars.
I was very impressed at how much more complex it was in comparison to other whiskys I've tried.
On the nose and on the taste, there is a heavy presence of what I can only describe as soap. And yet, it's still a very good whisky, but I think there must be many others that are better in the same price range.
Не стоит и 20-ой части уплаченных денег! Обжигает нижнюю часть языка, спирт. Ненавижу бленды.
(Translation using Google Translate: It is not necessary and the 20th of the money paid! Burns the lower part of the tongue, alcohol. I hate the nose.)
This is a pretty solid middle-of-the-road blend, and certainly a good entry to quality scotch blends. Just a hint of smoke, sweet but definitely not cloying, a little bit of complexity.
However, I think it's a bit too expensive for what it is. There are similarly good blends (Teachers, Black Bottle) for less money, or better blends for about the same price (Johnnie Walker Black).
