Royal Salute by the Chivas Brothers was originally created to celebrate the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, so it only seems fitting for Chivas to release another exceptional Scotch Whisky to pay tribute to the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. Often described that Royal Salute begins where other Scotch Whiskies end, Royal Salute is hand blended by Chivas Master Blender from the very finest casks collected at the oldest working distillery in the Scottish Highlands, Strathisla. A regal dedication indeed.
Tasting Note: Great maturity with masses of orchard fruits and a hint of passion fruit as well. The oak is rounded and supple while with water a banana note is released. Thick and chewy, with more grip than suggested on the nose and a little nut on the finish.
