chivas regal 12 yo | 40%
A 50ml miniature of Chivas 12 yo , Scotch Whisky, bottled at 40% abv. Is the first Scotch Whisky officially released post-US Prohibition and it’s one of the most regularly lauded by the critics.
A creamy, aromatic melange of vanilla custard, hints of aniseed, lemon curd and butter toffee, then wood shavings and dried banana chips develop with just a hint of cassis.
More of those banana chips showing through on the palate, this time there’s a creamy hit of barley malt too, pepped up with a little allspice, also some notes of ground walnut and caramel.
Light spices and black pepper on the tail, with lingering notes of cereal sweetness.
