“A great whisky. Old but fruity, sweet and complex. Enough wood on it but it is not the dominant flavour. Great powerful aroma. I am being distracted by it while I am writing this note. This one will not end up in the sink! ”
Royal Salute was launched on 2nd June 1953 as a tribute to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on her Coronation Day. The name of this exceptional Scotch Whisky comes from the 21 Gun Royal Salute, which is fired as a mark of respect for powerful dignitaries.
At her coronation, the crown of Queen Elizabeth II was set in rubies, sapphires and emeralds. These precious stones remain the inspiration for the colours of Royal Salute's handcrafted flagons, therefore bottle colour may vary.
One of the best Chivas whiskies I have ever tried. If you like this you should consider the overpriced Johnnie Walker Blue Label.
This dram has a white-like color.
Nose (92): inexistent. sweet, syrup, fruity pears and melon, a little oloroso sherry. First nosing data is innacurate as the previous tasting sheet lacked of this field.
Palate (92): . sweet, wood, spicy, biscuits, melon, sherry, a bit smoke and vanilla. Bouquet data is innacurate as the previous tasting sheet lacked of this field.
Finish (88): no finish. sweet, smoke, toffee, melon and vanilla. Finish length is innacurate as the previous tasting sheet lacked of this field.So based on other whiskies I have already tasted I rate this Chivas Regal Royal Salute 21 year Sapphire Flagon with 91 points over 100.
