In October, a timeless classic Chivas Regal has launched Chivas Regal Ultis, an inaugural blended malt Scotch whisky, created to celebrate the passion and dedication of five generations of Master Blenders. The $200 bottle of luxurious whisky is now available from Harrods.com and in limited cities across the U.S.
Using only five of the most precious signature single malts, Chivas Regal Ultis is created to represent the style and diversity of the prestigious Speyside whisky region and to pay tribute to the strength of the vision, commitment and mastery of Charles Howard, of Charles Julian, of Allan Baillie, of Jimmy Lang and of Colin Scott. The whisky, that has been hand-selected by the expert blending team, was distilled exclusively in copper pot stills. The latest release has been crafted with hand-selected malts from Tormore, Longmorn, Strathisla, Allt A’Bhainne and Braeval.
Chivas Regal Ultis is characterised by a complex, taste (a smooth vanilla texture, brimming with clementine and apricots, before giving way to a background of soft caramel, spicy cloves and ginger), a rich golden hue and a powerful aroma of ripe peach and red apples with accompanying cinnamon, fudge and honey infusions. The whisky’s finish is daring and long, with a warm hint of heather.
