Chivas Regal is a world-famous Scotch blend which was first made in the early 20th century by Chivas Brothers. The company can trace its roots back to 1801, with the opening of a grocers at Number 13 King Street, Aberdeen. Selling luxury food, coffee and spices, it wasn't until half a century later that the company started to make whisky, and then not until post-US Prohibition that Chivas Regal 12 Year Old was first officially released. F. Paul Pacult described Chivas Regal 12 as "the blend for grown-ups", awarding it an impressive 9 out of 10. It's a very apt statement - this is a very refined blended whisky, with herbs, honey and fruit leaping forth on the palate. Regularly lauded by the critics, this is a superb blend in its price category, representing great value for money.
Nose: A creamy, aromatic melange of vanilla custard, hints of aniseed, lemon curd and butter toffee. Wood shavings and dried banana chips develop with just a hint of cassis.
Palate: More of those banana chips showing through on the palate, this time there's a creamy hit of barley malt too, pepped up with a little allspice. Notes of ground walnut and caramel.
Finish: Light spice and black pepper on the tail. Lingering notes of cereal sweetness.
Overall: A spicy, beautifully balanced blend. Lots going on here.

Sweet, but not overly cloying. The malt comes through nicely, dancing on the tongue. Silky smooth, it's a perfect blend, perfect for any occasions. Grab yourself a nice crystal whisky glass, put a couple of ice cubes in ( I personally have ice with blend, and some still spring water with single malt ), sit back, sip, and appreciate the sublime skills of The Master Blender. This is delicious stuff.

Very good taste
31st January 2017
To be fair, paying at that price, what do you expect?Take away the price story, this whisky is not for me and family.Back here, we call it taste and smell like dead cockroaches on the wood. Sorry...

Worst after taste whisky it tastes like rotten coconut yuck

To be a single malt, a malt whisky has to contain no more than that single malt. Chivas Regal is a blended whisky however, it's good to remember that it contains a superb single malt. It's this strathisla single malt that makes it stand out from all the other blended cheaper whisky. It is hard to rate a whisky, personal taste gives us all a different opinion. My opinion is a simple one. You will not get a better 12 year old whisky for the price. In fact it is better than many whisky's of a higher price. Chivas Regal is not a name that is a fly by night like many brands are these days. It's been around for a lot of years and will be around for a lot longer.
26th December 2016
I have consumed this scotch for may years. It's always been great andat a good price. For some reason Costco just stopped carrying it. So I have to go to Bevmo or Safeway.Jerks.

Excellent flavor and very smooth.
27th August 2016
Picked this up for £10 on offer (35cl) - a real find. Was dubious, but having looked beyond the naysayers at the good reviews and considerable pedigree (two golds and a silver), I decided to give it a punt. Glad I did. Funnily enough, my main reasons for purchase were a) the fact I had finished my last bottle of single malt and didn't think I'd squeeze another £35+ outlay past the wife (we have two young and expensive children) and b) curiosity. First try - not fussed. Second try - didn't make the mistake of adding water, as I had been used to with some of the more complex, smokier malts I like. The Chivas revealed itself to be quite the dark horse - rivaling and, in some ways bettering, my last bottle of Balvenie Doublewood. A perfectly respectable and affordable blend - don't be a snob, at this price what do you have to lose?
15th August 2016
It's a greatest whisky ever...I endorse chivas regal.
13th August 2016
Easy to drink... Full of flavour and well priced for what you are getting... Plus it's widely available.

Hi,I have know about this whisky after reading novels in my mother Marathi. We are having 2 eagle shape bottles in our house, while my father is working in bar at my childhood. From that time i am dreaming about Chivas Regal. Today i am going to buy my first bottle. Cheers.Santosh
5th June 2016
By far the best of a terrible category of readily available heavily discounted scotch blend. You may not pick it over Glenfiddich or The Macallan any day of the week after you win the lottery for sipping with a few drops of water. For a delicious and interesting blend, only until Megamillions hits, this is it. Neat, rocks, soda, chivalry? Yes. Have it any way you like and there is no need to suffer for purity or wear a hair shirt. It is $23 on sale at the drug store down the street, just $5 more than some terrible young bourbon.

26th May 2016
My drink of the evening and it's like a smooth drink of pure .999 percent molten Gold. It's smooth, it shines, and it warms!! Life just couldn't be better than a quiet sunset, a smooth pipe and a glass of Chivas Regal 12 over ice. The drink of the Angels.
25th May 2016
This was THE One and Only blended Scotch whisky for me in the eighties. But sadly they've changed the taste somewhere in the nineties. (Like Confused wrote) from rich, creamy, smooth and full of caracter and also with some custard I tasted in the finish to less caracter, sharp now and that custardy finish is completely gone. More smokeyness came instead of it.Was that because they wanted to compete more with JWB? Which I don't like at all.In the 80's I would have rated it 5 stars +, but now just 3-.Anyone the same experience?
19th May 2016
Better to be used at cleaning up the hospitals floors.
18th May 2016
Smells like some sort of cleaning fluid or rubbing alcohol, but it's not at all like that on the palette. Can put a reasonable dent in a bottle of this of an evening without too much trouble. Not unpleasant at all despite the smell.
14th May 2016
As usual cheap and superb.
11th May 2016
Most disgusting Scotch I've ever tasted - and I've tasted some very cheap ones! This is worth about £2 a bottle based on my experience. Has the same antiseptic taste of stablemate Teachers - except Teachers is a fraction of the price and doesn't claim to be special. Never again will I throw money away on this garbage.
7th May 2016
6th May 2016
Smoky like JWB. Its a tasty whiskey for the price. I like the smoky flavor so to me it is better than Jameson or Crown.
29th April 2016
Smooth with honey touch blend
21st April 2016
One of my favorite whiskeys in its price range . From the nose to notes and overall taste it has something of everything . I only have one downside to the whiskey and that is that its a lil bit soft on impact but atleast it comes back strong(:
6th April 2016
Not being a whiskey drinker a gentleman at the club i belong to bought along a bottle of Chivas 12y for us to help celebrate his 93rd bithday yesterday what a relevation i am now hooked on your product my rum supplier wil take a hit now. Cheers and carry on the good work
1st April 2016
30th March 2016
good with one ice cube or splash of water .. there is honey .. definitely hazelnut and vanilla .. banana chips .. the nose is inviting .. dont expect peat or smoke in here because there is non of that happening with it .. what shall i say more ? .. short finish ? .. good whisky .. not bad not expensive .. very reliable .. very accessable and recommended for beginners! and IMO i prefer johnnie walker black over this one , if you have a sweet tooth go regal but if you are a peat and smoke fan go black and you won't come back ! i mean .. to come back to this one !
28th March 2016
Definitely trading on the name and not the taste. Very disappointing for the money. Starting to be heavily discounted in supermarkets over here as folks catch on.
9th March 2016
I'm more a malt maniac myself,but because the Chivas 12 was on special sale last week (under € 30,00 for a liter bottle) I thought let's try this.Very smooth and creamy with a nice vanilla and caramel note and a bit of lemon in the background.The pepper in the finish did the trick.I compared with my notes of the Strathisla I had a couple of years back,and very much of the tasting notes back then I see reappearing in this Chivas 12.Overall a good choice.
4th March 2016
Really smooth for me
16th February 2016
I definitely taste the wood chips! The banana too! NOT BAD!!
9th February 2016
I give it a rating 10. I could drink it instead of water or milk, if it didn't have alcohol.. :)Most powerful, tasty, gentlemen's whiskey of them all..
29th January 2016
Like some others here, I too, was reluctant to try this 'cheap' whisky, since it has such commercial appeal and such a low price. I drink what I think to be top shelf single malts, such as; Lagavulin 16, Talisker 10, Ardbeg 10, Uigeadail, Laphroaig (all), Highland Park, Old Pulteney . .& many more. Didn't see the need to try this stuff. But I did. Bought a 50ml sampler, brought it home, sat down for a serious try. Color is a nice golden amber (probably E150 color added), still pleasant to the eye; nose is very well described by MofM . . . creamy vanilla, bananas; palate . . .nice and creamy, spicy, a little anise, orange(?); finish is spicy, a little peppery, but nice.Overall . . . very pleasantly surprised. My honest opinion is, it is worth serious consideration by the serious scotch drinker. If you are looking for something in the same price range (blended) that is a tad better, try Monkey Shoulder. But, Chivas Regal is good whisky.
26th January 2016
23rd January 2016
As promarly a single malt drinker, I have been broadening my exposure to blended scotch (the only blended scotch I've had semi-regularly is JWBL which is reasonably good). Recently I tried out Dewars WL, which I found utterly repugnant, so I had very low expectations for the Chivas Regal 12y.Surprisingly, I found the Chivas 12y to be pretty good. The nose is light, almost difficult to pick out, but the notes of raisin, distant smoke and vanilla. The palate is more robust, though still light, with oaky vanilla, a hint of smoke and some distant dark fruit (a drop of one of Abalour's sherried malts somewhere in the mix?). The finish hangs on longer than I'd have expected, with a hint of tannins, but not unpleasantly so. Make no mistake, this is no Glendronach or Lagavulin, but it's pretty tasty. Notably absent were any offensive grain notes.If you're looking for a good, reasonably priced, but undemanding scotch, this would be a solid option at a good price.
It's a decent dram!
21st January 2016
Neat, rocks,soda... Makes JWB taste like dishwater.
18th January 2016
A great blend, fruit, spice, sweet and with a whiff of smoke. Don't discount it over the currently more fashionable malts. It's a decent dram!
17th January 2016
I know this libation has been with us for quite a while and I have been drinking Scotch for some time. For some reason however, this one always eluded me, until last night while I was sitting at a local establishment catching up with an old friend and I decided to have one. I liked it so much that I bought a bottle on the way home. Pretty good stuff, especially for less than $30 a fifth.
13th January 2016
7th January 2016
Had it with my uncle for the first time and it was a great and a unique experience. Cheers to Chivas😊
6th January 2016
outstanding taste of which i discovered in a hotel in the Dominican republic and still enjoy to this day with my father , brother and son many thanks
5th January 2016
excellent scotch bought on spec at tesco, glad i did.
4th January 2016
I first bought this whisky about 20 years ago, and now it is the only on I buy.SO smoooooth !!!! Love it.
23rd December 2015
I agree with the description above. Definitely feel the vanilla and banana, with the spice and pepper aftertaste. I like it more than Dewars 12 if anyone is between both.I'm a beginner and can't wait to keep on tasting!
22nd December 2015
a fan of this brand
27th November 2015
25th November 2015
I am a fan of blends, usually older and more expensive, however, I enjoyed this very much. It's a nice robust blend, large on the mouth but clean.
21st November 2015
I tried almost all higher whisky brands chivas is no. 1 in all criteria .
19th October 2015
It's best together with a glass of water, more smoother and gentle that way. Light spicy, some weak bitter taste. Not complex, and the finish could have been more interesting, could have last longer. I think I'll buy this again, but it's not my first priority when it comes to whiskies. A whisky just over the average level, but that's not bad.
9th October 2015
I love Scotch whisky and I love to drink it. That means, 0,2 to 0,3 l per night are my average consumption. It goes without saying that I don't bother about expensive Single Malts. I am rather looking for affordable Scotch Whiskies, Single Malts or blends, which provide a reasonably enjoyable drinking experience.So far, I have mainly feasted on Johnnie Walker Black Label and Glenmorangie The Original 10 years. Now I will add this Chivas Regal 12 Year Old to my list. It is not as complex and good as the JWBL, let alone the Glenmorangie. But it makes a decent change to my standard blend every day whisky JWBL.Nice nose, solid palate, you can feel that they are trying to reach up to the Black Label. And, I must admit, they do not miss it all too far.
2nd October 2015
I bought a 2 oz bottle of this at total wine. Im not much of an alcohol drinker but i thought this was good. Ive had one other whisky which was a lot smoother but this has more flavor. I believe one of the other reviews said they tasted a bit of peppermint, i would agree on that. Its nice and sweet and not a lot of after taste(which I like). Like I said i didnt buy a full bottle, im guessing the price is somewhere between 35-42, i feel as though it could be cheaper but thats just my opinion. I could see this being many peoples favourite whisky. Slainte mhar
31st August 2015
I change my mind, I wrote the review below and realized I was being too harsh. Chivas regal 12 is delicate, the grains in whisky is well blended, whereby its integrated well into the whisky. For $40 you can get better stuff, but its all personal preference. If you want to get a whisky that is delicate and floral without being too offensive with any taste such as peat then this is for you. that being said, this whisky is not too flavourful in anyway, although it is very sweet.
29th July 2015
I been a single malt drinker for awhile now, and lately have been exploring blends just because i want to broaden my perspective on whisky. Anyways, I just tried some of this chivas, its not bad but its not good. Would I buy this again? probably not, this is because its overpriced, teacher's higland cream is MUCH better, tastes way silkier and rich. Chivas 12, is very bland and "delicate" its very thin. For the same price, johnnie walker black crushes chivas 12. So what im saying is, if you're looking for an overpriced blend that is okay to drink i guess this would be it.
28th July 2015
I bought a bottle on special for $42. I used to dronk it quite a lot but bhavent bought a bottoe for five or so years. I remember it being thick n smooth, a really nice texture n taste for a blended. The new bittle i bought is thin and sharp and lacking any charater. Has the quality declined or has my palatte improved?
29th June 2015
So smooth, so rich and delightful. I prefer this blend to single malts. It is well done and very tough product to beat,
17th June 2015
Quaffable blended Whiskey, creamy in the mouth with a spicy peppery finish, definitely worth considering for the price.
5th May 2015
Gradually getting to enjoy, I'm try all types of whisky blended and malts. Had a few visit to different distilleries in Scotland and understand more about what the differences are. I would recommend this as a mature whisky drinkers choice, definitely a top 5 for me.
15th April 2015
Who wrote that CR12 is the best, they have not tasted any other whiskeys. For exemple Glenlivet, Aberlour, Benriach etc.. This more suitable for coctails or quick drink, shots.
11th April 2015
I have been drinking this for years, but I have the cherrywood rocker and the 1.75 litre does not come with the handle.
21st March 2015
Chivas is a wonderfully smooth whisky. Best I have had.
4th March 2015
Thought I'd have a go at this as I saw it at a reduced price, and after enjoying JW Black a lot more than expected. Didn't get this at all though - too harsh on the finish ('black pepper' notes generally just turn out to be throat burn for me though), thin and with far too much banana everywhere, and for me, not much of the expected richness and smoothness.Don't get me wrong, it's not a bad drink as such, I'd take it over a budget blend no problem, but for the price you're better off with an entry level malt.
13th February 2015
This is too good, I have been a fan of it for a while now. It is too smooth, aromatic and beautiful!
1st February 2015
I would not agree with the two previous extremely biased (or even obsessed) opinions. It is a juicy yet elegant blend, showing both a nice (orchard fruits based) aroma and a chewy, moreish mouthful which accords to the nose. Good and quite long aftertaste as for a blend. In sum, one of the better 12yo blends on the market.
29th January 2015
Great Blend, not to be compared to Malt. In fact it tastes better than some blend like the Glenlivet 12 that is aged in American Oak. American Oak just sucks
24th January 2015
Drank this half an hour after I had a glas of Scapa 16 yr. True, nog fair to compare bit I will nevertheless. Of the blend nothing remains. Glad finished the bottle now.
20th December 2014
Had a taste of this yesterday and I never thought I could fill my mouth with something so vile and disgusting as this foul putrid liquid.I was literally astonished by how much I hated this whisky.All I could taste was a strong chocolate note on the tail end.I don't know if this was a problem with this specific bottle but it was a most jarring experience I can recommend to no one but my most hated enemy.
15th December 2014
when it comes to whiskey i know jack didily squat, however ive tried a few and havent found anything better yet. i always try to buy different whiskeys all the time and for the buget this is the best. stay away from bells, and grants, yuk
11th December 2014
It is the one of best 12 years blend that I've tasted, I really feel the butter toffee taste on it and the finish is pleasently smooth.
10th December 2014
12 years of boredom.
27th November 2014
It's easy.....like Friday evening.
15th November 2014
easy to drink, honey, ripe apple.. very refreshing i have to say if compared to JW black label, however Black Label is more complex.. Chivas is good if you just want an easy going scotch and very refreshing. GREAT
9th November 2014
Its very good. If you want decent quality for an affordable price, well worth the investment.
5th November 2014
Has to be the best blend I've had, still would not buy this over my single malts like Jura
30th October 2014
Is first taste is sweeter but lingering finish too spicy. Not smooth to me but seemly odd compared to a single malt. I'd rather spend the extra.
24th October 2014
ive had bad and good bottles of this. never tastes the same to me
9th October 2014
Whether on the nose or pallette this blend affords the drinker with a complex blend of hand soap, battery acid, and mule urine. It's a terrible blend for the money!!
20th September 2014
The store across the way from me has it for $30 and it is definitely worth the money, it tastes and smells exactly how it is described here, although its more of a sipping liquor in my personal opinion.
10th August 2014
Where I am, I can get this for just around $30, and it is well worth the price. It has all of the tasting notes as described above, though I'm reminded of carrot cake a lot when I drink it. No reason to complain. A solid blended scotch.
2nd July 2014
Great for a blended whisky. As they say - quality blend. One of the best blended whiskies for it's price, in my opinion.
21st June 2014
Not spectacular, but a quality blend and worth drinking before moving on to other, more challenging malts.
5th June 2014
Yes, it is somewhat bland, but it is such an easy dram with a fabulous balanced gentle taste. Sometimes I just want a simple quality blend and Chivas 12 fits the bill and never disappoints. I take it with a small ice cube as there is an unwanted alcohol nip. It is often compared unfavourably with its rival JWB but I believe Chivas stands up well. They are both overpriced so I have marked it down accordingly.
Give me a good bourbon. Waay better.......sorry.....
17th May 2014
I was introduced to this a few years ago as my first starter whiskey and I have no complaints at all, I find it best served with one cube. if you want to treat yourself the 18year is defiantly worth a shout.
9th May 2014
Slick Ric loves it!
15th April 2014
This is blended NOT malt!! Best tipple goin,, neat single cube or with green tea!!
13th April 2014
well I was just curious as I don't usually like many of the blended varity and usually stick with my favourafe Bowmore single malt. however when I tasted chivas regal 12 it had that lovely rich notes of honey that I could tasted and feel in all it's thickness swirling around my mouth and when swallowed it left this very smooth finish and I must say long smooth and soothing finish with no harsh or burning sensation to it. it actually reminded me of a Jura 10 year old origin but actually much nicer. but I must say this has to be the best blended whiskey I have ever tasted and will buy again. that and Bowmore are my leading favourites now but I love tasting different whiskeys even this I have my two that lead the way for my taste buds. 10/10 for a premium blended whiskey. try it it will not disappoint.
12th April 2014
I am just curious, does chivas regal expire? I have one in our house, given to me as a gift by a friend but I am not sure if it expires?
4th April 2014
Slick Ric likes it
18th February 2014
It's ok. A supplier gave me a 1/5 Asa. Gift. Asked him to give me JW black label next year or I am switching suppliers.
I mentioned in my review for JW Black that it and this formed the gateway of my interest in scotch.Has more of a bite than Black, which is why I prefer this. I don't know if this is frowned upon (some guy looked at me with disgust when I did this), but I poured a generous bit of this in my cappuccino and it tasted amazing.
31st January 2014
And whisky is really good.
26th January 2014
Very quite good taste. For me even it is better than Hennessy VS cognac.

what wouldpbe the total cost, including shipping, if any for 1 liter bottle of chivas 12/18 YO
Bought a bottle and did not like the bland flavour, although well made and of good balance. Also purchased 20cl Caol Ila 12 that was too thin, so added 10cc to the 2/3 of remaining Chivas. Wow! What an improvement. It adds some decent top notes and transforms Chivas into a terrific blend.

11th August 2013
In family party it's just cool(or hot)
17th July 2013
I repeat, it is no big deal. More to the bland side with nothng interesting either in the nose or the taste. If there is woody note at all, it must be balsa
13th July 2013
Somewhat commercialized, yet still a good, solid Scotch Whisky.
9th July 2013
Smooth, Sweet with a Woody Finish. Simply Wonderful & Extremely Satisfying..
20th June 2013
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).
10th June 2013
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.)
8th June 2013
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.
22nd May 2013
people who say its cheap need to fix up!!! its better than anything I've had. chivas Regal is the best!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

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.
22nd September 2012
it's a good blend. It is overrated but still it makes for a good decent whiskey.
23rd August 2012
Did not worth the money. Never buying this one again
6th August 2012
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.
6th March 2012
Sweet, Smooth and a hint of woodiness. Loved it..
8th February 2012
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)
1st March 2011
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.
7th August 2010
i like it

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.
