Tasting notes of SlàinteMhath:

14. Feb 2020
Bottled for the British Armed Forces in the 1970s, this old version of Chivas Regal 12 was discovered in a musty basement after four decades of storage. What secrets does it hold? A bit reluctant at first, the aroma reveals tinned pineapple, shortbread and wood spices. The taste is silky and yet robust, featuring notes of kiwi, cumin and peppery licorice. Quality casks are shining through, not the inferior refill casks they use for most blends nowadays. Creamy vanilla, roasted nuts and a dash of oak fade in semidry and lingering finish. What a blast from the past!
