Chivas Regal Royal Salute 21 Year Old Whisky 70cl

Royal Salute was launched on 2nd June 1953 as a tribute to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on her Coronation Day. The name of this exceptional Scotch Whisky comes from the 21 Gun Royal Salute, which is fired as a mark of respect for powerful dignitaries. Royal Salute is 21 year old blended Scotch whisky first created in 1953 to pay tribute to the British monarchy, with the first bottles launched at the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II (which took place at Westminster Abbey on 2 June 1953 when Elizabeth II was in her mid twenties). Fittingly, the whisky takes its name from the “21 gun salute” which is a customary British gun salute. Let's get into the review itself. What have we here? A clean, golden to amber pour with a greenish cast to it. Aroma starts with a very clear and distinctive hint of pineapple that I loved and led me to pair this with the very fresh raw fruit a few day later to great heights of joy. There's also a trace of umeboshi plum and citrus rind. Add a little water and the charred oak will be displayed: caramel, charcoal, undergrowth, etc. I must say this one goes well with a drop of some subtly sparkling water, but that's just an aside.A rare brown Spode decanter from Chivas Brothers Ltd, This Royal Salute flagon of 21 years old blended whisky has been specially created to celebrate the Coronation of her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. The Royal Salute 21 Year Old is deep amber in colour with rich, fruity aromas and the sweet fragrance of autumn flowers. Notes of full, deep fruity flavours on the palate with subtle hints of smokiness are rich, long and lingering on the finish.

Royal Salute 21 Years Blended Scotch Whisky, 70 cl with Gift Box

The Royal Salute liquid is 21 year old blended Scotch whisky. Despite being a blend of different whiskies, Royal Salute’s “home” is said to be the Strathisla distillery (which is the oldest working distillery in Scotland, having been founded in 1786). Beyond this hint from Chivas Brothers that part of Royal Salute’s recipe may be Strathisla single malt whisky, there is not much more official information about the malt and grain whiskies that make up this iconic blended Scotch. Royal Salute Whisky byla poprvé namíchána jako projev úcty Jejímu Veličenstvu královně Alžbětě II. při příležitosti její korunovace v roce 1953. Jedná se o super prémiovou skotskou whisky, která na prestižní soutěži International Wine & Spirit Competition a International Spirit Challenge získala ocenění za nejlépe míchanou whisky. One of the best Chivas whiskies I have ever tried. If you like this you should consider the overpriced Johnnie Walker Blue Label.Finish: The nut oils dry up as the oak becomes grippy, and the taste of tea leaves and spices fade gently together with dwindling citrus peel marmalade and dates in what is a slow, long-lived and classy finale.
