Royal Salute 21 Year Old - Sapphire Flagon Reviews

Bitter and not enjoyable with an overwhelming bad taste

Like others that have reviewed this whisky. I’m afraid it seems like the bottle has been victim of not being sealed correctly, something isn’t right with it. Shrink wrapped, and cork in tact. But still some cork in the whisky itself.

Not a fan of this. Very bad overwhelming bitter taste that you can’t get rid of.

Please note that I didn’t buy this from master of malt. It was bought at auction. I just find it funny that quite a lot of other people have had the same experience with it.

Very disappointing!

Frankly very disappointing, as stated elsewhere there are much better blends for for much less money.
I just don’t like Chivas whiskys they have an odd flavour to my palate, it may just be me ...........?

The one to try and savour... 🥃

This is one Scotch Whisky that made me re-think the label brand snobbery, yes we all look for the single malt, the smoke, the peat, the chocolate, the TCP, the vanilla..... Etc. Etc. But this 21 Yr old is full of character like no other... Well to what I have enjoyed (in excess of over 100). It has a well deserved place on my finest whisky shelf.

Great depth, sweet and quite simply a masterpiece

Velvety smooth. Real rich and complex.

Poor taste and flavour.

Bought it from my neighbourhood Dan Murphy in Richmond, Australia. Taste and flavour is below average. Pretty disappointing for the price being charged for it.

20th September 2019

Wow! Brilliant.

Outstandingly good in my humble. And superb value for money. It’s sort of got everything one could dream of in an opulent & superbly balanced blend with a Speyside style.

Poor in taste and doubtful in packaging

I purchased a bottle of the 21-year Sapphire Flacon last November in the duty-free shop at KIA, Bangalore. I had reserved the same for a special function, which came up this year. When I opened the bottle, the packaging container and the pouch were impressive. However, much to everyone's surprise, the flacon itself was sealed with a flimsy shrink-plastic. The contents were not too great either...Which prompted everyone to wonder whether the contents were original ornate. The opening flavours were not special nor were the body and after flavours great. Overall, it was disappointing. Not sure if it was a make-believe or a fake. I felt the exorbitant price and that too at an authenticated outlet was a serious let-down.

Smooth salute

I really enjoyed this scotch.

28th January 2019

Way Overrated

There’s an infinite number of much nicer whisky that cost less then this.
The best thing about it is that it looks good on the shelf.

Over priced

Never tasted any whisky like this before reminds me very much of chocolate orange I been a fan o chivas regal for many years but you could get around four bottles for the price o this one not sure if salute works for my palate

Cracking whisky and superbly presented...I would also recommend the Chivas 18yo if you get the chance. It's half the price but tastes superb, although it does lack a velvet bag!

14th May 2017


Very distinctive. I get why it may not be everyone's taste but it's ridiculous to compare it to such mundane blends as no age Gold Label. Where I live, Blue Label is almost twice the price, so not really fair comparison. I'm quite an experienced whisky drinker and this one is fair for the price, perhaps a tad overpriced, but you get a nice decanter and not just a glass bottle.

Not bad but better blends for cheaper

I collect and drink whiskey , I have bought all three 21 year old Royal salute, I bought one sapphire to drink , as a 21 year old blend with a hefty price tag, it pales in comparison to no age statement gold label johnnie walker £40 , and In the rough price bracket no age statement blue label johnnie walks walks all over this , the taste isn't a gift from the gods but the bottles are beautiful in their velvety pouches and ceramic coloured bottles , even black label £20 per 70cl beats the taste on this for richness and smootheness on a blend

21st August 2016

Not bad but blends come much better for the money and age

Hello Collect and drink whiskey , I purchased three bottles of this ( full set )and one sapphire blue to drink, as a 21 year old age statement blended whiskey it a beautiful ceramic boot.e with velvety pouch and fancy lid , the whiskey however pales in comparison to no age statement blends such as gold label johnnie waker at £40 per 79 cl the job if walker blue label no age statement blend blows this away

Smoothest and richset taste

A superb taste and blend , I love Chivas, and this 21 years old blend is by far the best and smoothest whisky; simply delicious!

Manhattanmom has bottle to sell

I have a bottle of Royal Salute in a blue velvet bag, I'd like to sell. What would be a fair price in NYC? I have had it for approximately 25 years.

Waste of Money (and liver mileage)

For a 21 y/o blend this is super harsh.
Has a light nose of absinthe which i find repulsive.

This is for MIXED DRINKS at best.(this is an insult)

3rd September 2015


I just bought a bottle of this today and just had a dram, MASSIVE disappointment. It honestly tastes like chivas 12 with a tiny bit more body and flavor, NOT WORTH THE MONEY.

Now I just compared it to jonnie walker black, just had some. Johnnie walker black has way more body and flavor compared to this. At 1/3 the price and I feel is a better blend.

What I'm trying to say is this, without the fancy packaging, if they charged $40 for the royal salute it would be decent because that's how much I feel its worth, but for over $100 this is a COMPLETE rip off.

Big Bad Bari Bob

I was given a bottle of this fine blended whisky for my 60th birthday. Normally I have blends with lemonade or use them, for medicinal purposes, in hot toddies but this is definitely worth savouring on its own. It would be interesting to learn which malts Chivas have combined for this excellent "swally". I might even purchase another bottle (in a different colour) when this is finished!

23rd June 2015

I don't normally do blended whisky but....

.....had this bought for me as a gift. I was for years a Slcottish only whisky snob. After opening my mind to the world of Japanese malts this guard dropped. My last snobbish attitude was towards blended whisky. How wrong could I be? This stuff really is the whisky of dreams, I don't think i have ever sampled a whisky so smooth, drinkable.....yet rich & complex. You even get a blue velvet bag should the need participate in the FA Cup ever occur. Quite simply amazing.

25th April 2015

The best bar none...

What can be said that hasn't been so eloquently expressed below...? Buy it, try it, savour it and fall in love with it. Seriously, you will not find a better scotch whisky anywhere!

The Best Scotch I Have Personally Tasted - Including Single Malts

No, I can't determine any "stewed fruits", chocolate, or any of the other imaginaries that the tuxedo tasters detect. But I have enjoyed tasting many fine scotch whiskies thus-far in my journey. Glenlivet 18, Johnnie Walker Blue, Green, and Platinum. (I even liked the OLD JW "Gold" until they stopped making it). Personally, I like a bit of smoke - so Lagavulin 16 was my brand for a while.

So many single malts, I really can't remember them - which is sad, because there are some "greats" out there that deserve mentioning.

Now I can go buy Johnnie Walker "Blue" (if I save up) right now for about $200 a bottle (750ml). BUT - This stuff (Chivas Royal Salute 21 yr old) tops them all! I mean it folks - I'm not a snob. And it IS expensive! But it is the absolute finest scotch whisky I have yet to taste.

The color, the nose, the perfect smoke, the total flavor and finish - THIS is IT!

Now taste is an individual preference, obviously - so if you don't agree that's your right and I respect both it AND you. There are many good scotch whiskies and it is nice to try them all.

But to this day, with my God-given senses - Royal Salute 21 is unbeaten by all others that I have drank. I only wish it was easier to find at my location, (Maryland USA) AND of course - for LESS MONEY!
But regardless of that - I am convinced by my own experience. It is honestly the best scotch and I salute Chivas for producing it.

Stand At Attention

This was my introduction bottle to Chivas and made me purchase the Chivas Regal 25 which became a staple bottle on my shelf. Definitely one of my favorite 21 year olds which is entirely smooth and enjoyable to drink. Smells wonderful in your glass and makes you appreciate the work that went into this blend which was placed inside this beautiful bottle once held in your hands. Put your hand to your hairline and salute.

Simply THE BEST blend of them all. Smooth, sweet, lovely, easy to smash the whole bottle back.

I am still bewitched by its presence. I cn't fnd any outlets nearby that stock the RS brand. I love giving it as a gift to my 't' totaller friends at the club - ha!
Evil stuff but beautiful to own on one's deathbed.
Where do I buy a c/s, or three?

21st August 2014

Superb blend

One of the finest blended whiskies I've had the pleasure of drinking, and even more enjoyable due to receiving it as a gift! Top class.

5th June 2014

Doesn't give me a headache!

Can't say I can taste dirt or smell sea air, but I do enjoy the taste, and I don't need to blather on about honey and peat.

A Smooth and Pleasant Experience

Bought this for a special occasion to share with family. We're not serious scotch drinkers by any stretch of the imagination, but we all relaxed immediately after the pour. Our conversation turned to how how smooth and pleasant this scotch was, and how much we enjoyed it. While the initial intent was to have one celebratory drink and put it away for a later occasion, we couldn't resist a second pour. We all thought the nose was sweet with hints of floral and honey, and the experience was smooth from start to finish. It lasted a good long time on the palette, as well. A MUCH better experience than what I had with a previous bottle of Johnny Walker Blue.

I'm now on my 4th flagon of R.S. Maroon, green, blue and now another maroon. It's my down time treat, only 2-3 times a year. My dear wife buys me a new one on special occasions.

Was given the opportunity to try this at some scottish friend's house. It was a retirement present for the wife's father. They must have thought a lot of him because it took me completely by surprise. Beautiful balanced, lovely sweet with orange and peach. With a smoothness I have never experienced from any other malt whisky blended or single. In a word fabulous, the trouble is I don't want to go back to drinking "ordinary" malts after that.
