Chivas Royal Salute 21 Years Old 70cl 40°
Royal Salute is a blend specifically created for Queen Elisabeth II of England in 1953. Chivas Royal Salute is a collection of 21 year-old malts, in reference to the 21 cannon shots fired as a "royal salute" on coronation day, honouring the Queen.
Royal Salute is produced by the Strathisla distillery in Speyside, and has a very important share of Strathisla Single Malt. This expression has been bottled in a china jar, engraved with the Royal Gun Salutes emblem of the Tower of London, and protected with a gold and emerald velvet pouch.
Royal Salute develops creamy fruity notes, slightly smoky with a flowery backdrop, lifted with sweet nutty flavours. One of the finest Blended Scotch whiskies.
The founders of the Chivas Brothers Co., James & John Chivas, knew that a whisky would be only as good as the steadiness of its quality.
At that time, whiskies used to be rough and did not age well. Hence, the Chivas brothers created extremely smooth quality blended whiskies, and quickly became real pioneers in the art of blending. Others then followed the standards set up by the Chivas Brothers, and, at the beginning of the 20th century, the Chivas Brothers marked history creating a blend of the finest quality they called “Chivas Regal”… Securing the quality and steady flavours and character of Chivas Regal is no other than Colin Scott, who has been Master Blender at Chivas Regal for more than 30 years.
