Chivas Regal 12 years
One of the best-known brands amongst Scotch´s lovers is Chivas Regal. Nowadays, this brand of whisky is one of the universal ones, being recognized in all the continents. Although it has been for many years a brand more associated with a high position, this has not stopped Chivas Regal from being one of the five most sold blends in the world. In this article we will talk about Chivas Regal 12 years, a great option for those who want a Scotch of medium price but good quality.
With the current offer of good mid-range whiskies, the Chivas Regal 12 years is no longer the best choice on the market. However, that does not mean that it is no longer a good choice. Quite the contrary. This is a nice Scotch, especially indicated for those who like smoother blended whiskies, without that very smoky flavor. It is therefore an excellent choice for a day to day beverage or a meeting with friends.
After letting this Scotch stand in the glass, it’s time to inhale their scents. So this is a very smooth, very fruity whisky. At an early stage, when you smell your drink, the first feeling is that you hardly notice alcohol. After a while, you begin to feel the fruity and floral aromas. Thus, among the main aromas that can be felt in this Scotch whisky, the vanilla, pear, apple, pineapple, nuts and cereals are those that most stand out.
Just as it happens with the aromas, here the alcohol taste doesn’t bother either. On the contrary, this Scotch whisky starts drier, with a spice drift, then comes the cereal flavor, and then its fruit flavors, ending with a little touch of vanilla. With a little water or ice, the fruity becomes more striking, but changes its finish, becoming shorter and more intense.
