Chivas is an inspiration from James and John Chivas, who pioneered and excelled in the art of blending whiskies in the 19th century. The Chivas Regal master blender has carried on this expertise in crafting unique and outstanding blends to make Chivas Regal one of the most generous and tasteful blended scotch whiskies.
Wine Enthusiast 96 points - The wonderful bouquet includes scents of bacon fat, honey, orange rind with deeper smells of black pepper, cinnamon, vanilla bean and pipe tobacco. Entry is silky smooth, semisweet, concentrated and honeyed; the midpalate offers grainy sweet, yet spicy, tangy, fruity, nutty and floral tastes. The oak element really emerges in the aftertaste, ideally completing this sensational blended Scotch. One of the finest blended Scotches in the world. - P.P. (12/1/2008) - 96-100.December/2008
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 96 points - Buttery aromas of toasted oats and nuts with slight citrus notes. Sea salt on the palate is refreshing along with ripe orange, tobacco and caramel. The texture is dusty and leaves the mouth pleasantly powdery..April/2016
