About this deal

Những chai rượu có tuổi đời ít nhất 12 năm: Mortlach 12, Ballantines 12 THƯỞNG THỨC TRỌN HƯƠNG VỊ CHIVAS 12 REGAL HẢO HẠNG Some history. Chivas Regal started life as a 25-year-old whisky in 1909, but due to Prohibition in the US it largely disappeared in the late 1920s, re-emerging as a 12-year blend – Chivas 12 – in the 1930s. Even then, in a red wax sealed bottle brandishing the words ‘Chivas Aberdeen,’ were the crossed lances which are still part of our identity today.

Every Chivas Regal whisky has its own unique formula and selection of aged whiskies, with their own character, flavour and taste experience.Around this time, as grain whisky became ever ready available and international markets started to emerge, the company looked to the United States. In continuing its link with royalty and status, the Chivas Brothers released Chivas Regal 25 year old Blended Scotch Whisky in 1909. As the world’s oldest blended Scotch whiskey of its era, it sadly had a short success. World War I, Prohibition and a Depression all led to a whisky recoil. Only the finest malt and grain Scotch whiskies make it into Chivas Regal 12. Strathisla single malt runs through the heart of all Chivas blends – intertwined with Strathclyde single grain and more – to create a whisky that’s remarkably smooth.

The latter half of the 1800’s and the start of the 1900’s saw Chivas Brothers and the whisky we have come to know take form. The initial blend in 1854 was called the Royal Glen Dee before becoming a proprietary 10 year malt and grain whisky called Royal Strathythan under the Chivas Brothers in 1863. By the turn of the century, the last present Chivas family member had passed but the brand-name was kept in perpetuity. So what is in the blend? Well, as with pretty much all blended Scotch whisky, the blend recipes are proprietary. But with that being said, the Chivas home distillery of Strathisla makes up the core of the malt. Confirmation from the brand mentions the inclusion of the Pernod Ricard distilleries of Longmorn, Glenlivet, Braeval, Miltonduff and Allt-a-Bhaine.

With an aromatic infusion of wild herbs, heather, honey and orchard fruits on the nose, the Chivas bursts with the smooth taste of ripe, honeyed apples, with notes of vanilla, hazelnut and butterscotch, creating the generously rich and fruity taste on the palate.

Within the 12-year-old Scotch whiskies that go into our signature blend you’ll find Strathisla single malt, Strathclyde single grain and more to create a whisky that’s remarkably smooth. Revisiting this classic has been a surprising exercise. Chivas Regal 12 Year Old still stands up by itself as a more than solid introductory sipper. Incredibly well balanced and having a lot more body than I remember. That being said, this expression has been around for a long time and is often overlooked in newer markets.
