Could anybody provide me some information about this whisky please? Should I keep it or just sell it?
Chivas tell us this sounds like a bottle of Royal Salute 21 Year Old premium Scotch whisky. Royal Salute was launched in 1953 to commemorate the Queen’s Coronation. The first bottle was actually green and then a brown bottle was released. The packaging then changed to red, green and dark blue bottles, to represent the jewels in the Coronation crown. Today Royal Salute retails for around £90.
