Chivas Regal 12 Bottling Note

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.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

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.

    User Reviews of the Chivas Regal 12 Year Old

    I change my mind, wrote the review below

    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.

    overpriced compared to other "entry level" blends

    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

    A lovely blend, a nice little gimmick

    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

    Reasonable Whisky

    Quaffable blended Whiskey, creamy in the mouth with a spicy peppery finish, definitely worth considering for the price.

    5th May 2015

    1st bottle

    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

    It is great.

    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

    Nice presentation, shame about the actual whisky

    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

    Delectable Chivas

    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

    Classy blend

    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

    Not bad at all

    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

    Tasten like ... Nottingham?!

    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

    Never again.

    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

    best i could afford

    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

    Great Chivas!

    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 Friday evening.

    15th November 2014

    A very good blend

    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

    better than most

    Its very good. If you want decent quality for an affordable price, well worth the investment.

    5th November 2014

    best blend I've had

    Has to be the best blend I've had, still would not buy this over my single malts like Jura

    30th October 2014

    can't compare to glenlivet

    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

    different from 1 bottle to the other

    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

    This is well worth the price.

    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

    Solid Blended Scotch

    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

    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

    Good entry-level

    Not spectacular, but a quality blend and worth drinking before moving on to other, more challenging malts.

    5th June 2014

    Essential Blend

    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.

    5th June 2014


    Give me a good bourbon. Waay better.......sorry.....

    17th May 2014

    Good starter whiskey

    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

    Daisy Lofthouse Young enough to know BETTER AND MORE

    This is blended NOT malt!! Best tipple goin,, neat single cube or with green tea!!

    13th April 2014

    Best blended whiskey I have tasted

    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

    does it expire?

    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?

    Decent but not jw black label

    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.

    18th February 2014

    Good for newbies like myself

    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

    I forgot an assessment to put.

    And whisky is really good.

    26th January 2014

    From Russia with love.

    Very quite good taste. For me even it is better than Hennessy VS cognac.

    do u ship to india?

    what wouldpbe the total cost, including shipping, if any for 1 liter bottle of chivas 12/18 YO

    14th October 2013

    What an improvement

    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.

    I have a bottle of Chivas Regal from 1944 or 1945. The General Wines and Spirits, NY, NY seal is #155480892 Any idea what it may be worth??

    11th August 2013

    just cool

    In family party it's just cool(or hot)

    17th July 2013

    No big deal

    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

    Solid Scotch Whisy

    Somewhat commercialized, yet still a good, solid Scotch Whisky.

    9th July 2013

    World's Best Blended Whisky

    Smooth, Sweet with a Woody Finish. Simply Wonderful & Extremely Satisfying..

    20th June 2013

    A good blend, but somewhat overpriced

    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

    Говно. Евгений из Украины

    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

    Cracked this open for celebration

    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

    This Whiskey is the best!!!!!

    people who say its cheap need to fix up!!! its better than anything I've had. chivas Regal is the best!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

    25th March 2013

    This is what I drink when it comes to 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.

    22nd September 2012

    Overrated and overhyped but still not bad

    it's a good blend. It is overrated but still it makes for a good decent whiskey.

    23rd August 2012

    Bottled rubbish

    Did not worth the money. Never buying this one again

    6th August 2012

    Worth revisiting at the right price

    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

    Great Stuff

    Sweet, Smooth and a hint of woodiness. Loved it..

    8th February 2012

    Good stuff, but ...

    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

    Blended vs Premium

    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

    26th May 2010

    A bit disappointing

    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.
