Today, I tried the Chivas Regal 12 Year Old (which contains quite a bit of Strathisla, the most pittoresque distillery in Keith - Speyside).
The nose is very soft with citrus and apples, but also mild herbs and honey.
It’s rather creamy and somewhat nutty, but you’ll also discover some lavender and vanilla. The smokiness (very faint) can be attributed to the Strathisla.
The finish is not long, but quite pleasant, warm and sweet. It leaves your mouth dry and clean.
This is quite a nice blend indeed. Much better than for example Johnnie Walker Red Label or William Lawson’s. Oh, for those who wonder where the silly title of the review came from: ‘chivas’ is Gaelic for ‘The Small Place’. I couldn’t think of any other ‘snappy’ title (not that this one is snappy, I admit).
