I'm a huge fan of Chivas 25 - simply one of the best blends in the world, and hugely satisfying, but I had never tried the 18 year old, which is available at about a quarter of the price. It's a lovely drink, thick, creamy, full of taste, with a slightly spicy, quite dry finish. It is smooth, as expected, but not in the same league as the 25. Happy I've tried it, and will enjoy this bottle, but I'll stick to the 25 from now on.

title says it all. Chivas 18 is one of the best scotch you can get at about 18 USD. Period.

I'm a single malt snob. It affects my rating. If this were a single malt that was "tastes exactly like new Air Jordans", I may give it as high as a 9. Given it's just a blend, I think "really all they can do is make it taste like a pair of new sneaks?" but also think it's decently drinkable and not too expensive, so give it a 7. Though it's not all that cheap either. Likely won't buy again regardless; too much else in the world.

Call me names but I take spirit with water or ice allowed to melt a little or as much as it takes for me to feel some of what these professionals are expressing in their tasting notes.This one is rich and spicy and the first blend I've really enjoyed which is to say I'm going now to pour another.

I have always been a Makers Mark drinker (started with Jack), but this is simply amazing. Anyone who mixes this with anything but an ice cube, should be skinned alive. I can only imagine what the 25 year old tastes like, this is just plane superb !!!!!!

This wins head to head against single malts like Aberlour 12 (great woody with some moderate alcoholic burn which i suprisingly like here), Glenfiddich 12 (average fruity malt), Glenfidich solera vat 15 (probably the best nose, but not delivering on the palate as it is on the nose, but still a great one), Glenlivet 12 (good stuff, but I kind of got bored after 5 bottles or so). The triple (2 vs 1) fight against chivas 12 (my everyday drink, but I think it is losing its touch lately, or maybe it was just a rotten batch in a small 0.05 l. bottle) and JWB 12 (better then Chivas 12 lately, almost a little to sweet, but hides that sweetness with some smokiness), was also won super easy. Win against cognacs (Martell, Martell VSOP, Courvoisier, Hennessy and Remy Martin VSOP) was also super easy. A side note just that maybe Hennessy came close, but still very far away. I like Remy Martin also, but just a little to much alcoholic burn to my taste. Which I enjoy sometimes, but not always. The only battle that was really a though one to call a winner, was a head to head to Laphroaig 10, which is a love/hate kinda a thing (but a true masterpiece to my nose and taste), and I was going back and forth, smokiness and superstrong taste from Laphroaig 10 was trying to prevail, but after I was drink water, sniffing coffee, and finally deciding at the end, that Chivas 18 is way better. Chivas 18 gold signature is really like liquid gold. Sweet, super smooth, just the right amount of smokiness and sweetness, and when you "wash" your mouth with it, it leaves that rich long lasting finish...Mmmmm....

The best of Chivas. High standard. Very smooth and classy.

Although I prefer single malts, this is the best blended whisky with JW green. Go for it. Smooth...

one of my favourites, very smooth and in my opinion best served with one ice cube.

Not much on the nose, palate very smooth with a woody malty, peppery smoky finish, slight fruitiness

Has a faint smoky flavour near the end through the dark chocolate and dried fruits, fantastic!
9th January 2013
better than 12yo but at 18 years could be smoother, for a little more you could have Glenlivet 18

Good for the money. It's definitely worth the extra £20 to get the fantastic 21 year aged Chivas Royal Salute.
7th February 2011
Packed with flavour, dried fruit and bitter chocolate. Worth every penny.
