Chivas Regal 25, launched by the Chivas brothers in 1909, is the first bottling of the iconic brand. Considered the world's first luxury blended whisky, Chivas Regal 25 said goodbye to whiskey lovers for a long time after its production was stopped during the Prohibition period.
In 2007, Chivas Regal 25 was brought to life by legendary master blender Colin Scott. He expertly blended the whiskies, the youngest 25 years old, from the brand's rarest and oldest barrels. With its magnificent bottle, Chivas Regal 25 is one of the most special expressions in the brand's core range.
Chivas Regal 25 (Blended Scotch, 40 abv)
Nose: Orange, peach and red fruit notes accompany by caramel, almond, oak and biscuit. Quite fruity and elegant.
Palate: Similar with the nose, fruity aromas are evident. Orange, peach, chocolate and caramel flavors followed by oak and hazelnut. Quite sweet and smooth.
Finish: Fruity and slightly spicy, medium length finish.
Comment: Chivas Regal 25 is a blend that stands out with its rich character and smooth taste. It is truly admirable that this bottling, which consists of a blend of whiskeys, the youngest of which has a long maturation period of 25 years, is so balanced and elegant.
