Chivas Regal 12 Years Whisky
Produced by Chivas Brothers (which is owned by Pernod Ricard) at the Strathisla distillery in Keith, Moray in Speyside (Scotland, UK). This distillery was founded in 1786, and is the oldest continuously operating Highland distillery.
Their 12 Years Aged Whisky is a blended Scotch Whisky, and the market-leader in the 12 year and over aged whisky category in Europe and Asia Pacific. It's made of a blend of malt and grain scotch whiskies and is their signature blend. It was also the first in the family of Chivas whiskies to have been released after prohibition.
Known and loved flavours which are iconic in the Speyside region are at the heart of this whisky. Wild heather, sweet honey and crisp orchard fruits are the result of years of experience from the master blenders. This taste has been maintained since the pioneers of blended Scotch whisky (the founders of Chivas Regal, John and James Chivas) first started blending.
Within the blend itself you will find the finest mail and grain whiskies. Strathisla single malt, Strathclyde single grain and yet more are blended to create a whisky known for its smoothness. A variety of different casks are also sourced for the maturation of the 12-year-old whiskies, again - ensuring the quality.
On the nose this whisky gives the signature aromas, and is particularly aromatic. Wild herbs, heather, honey and orchard fruits all greet the nose. On the palate, this is rich, round and deliciously creamy. Honey and ripe pears come through, and are also joined by vanilla, hazelnuts and even butterscotch. The finish lingers and is particularly rich.
As Chivas say.... 'Because blended is better, in life and in Scotch'.

Whilst this can be enjoyed neat, a longer option can be really refreshing.
For a classic Scotch & Soda, take a highball glass and add 50ml of the Chivas. Add 100ml of Fever-Tree Soda Water, and then carefully fill the glass with ice. Top up the glass with soda, and give a small stir to mix. Garnish with a slice of orange.
This can also work with a ginger ale, swap out the soda for Fever-Tree Ginger Ale.
