The first thing that meets you when you open a bottle of Chivas Regal 12 Years Old, is from my point of view, vanilla, brown sugar and possibly some citrus fruits.

However when the content is poured into a glas, my first thought is to spit it right out. The dryness from the citrus fruits combined with the alcohol makes it burn your mouth, and remove all the traces of vanilla and brown sugar which is an excellent combination.

The reason why I bought this whisky was because of the fancy looking box which the whisky came in, and unfortunatly the content of the bottle did not match up with it's fancy wrapping.

@VictorLausten Everyone is entitled to their point of view - and I'm not going to pretend that this whisky is the best in the world - but I wonder if your score is a little harsh. I quite enjoy the citrus edge to the nose and there is a nice little smoky bump half way through the finish. For me it's a pleasant aperitif whisky and surely worth more than your score?

Perhabs it is a little harsh. But this whiskys quality does not live up to it's price. Therefore, a low score. When it comes to taste, which is completely individual, I am not a big fan of citrus edge, or at least not such a powerful citrus edge.

@VictorLausten fair enough! It's often quite reasonably priced over here in the supermarkets - frequently less than £20 so my perspective is probably different for that reason alone.

Oh, that explaines the different views on the whisky. In Denmark Chivas Regal starts around 300 DKK (33 £) - In that case, price and quality does not add up.
