A deluxe Scotch blend of grain whisky and a high proportion of single malt whiskies, all a minimum of 25 years old. Available as a limited release, each bottle is individually numbered.

The origins of Chivas Regal date back to a grocers and wine merchants opened in Aberdeen by William Edward in 1801. James Chivas, the first of the family which was to give its name to the business, joined him as his assistant in 1836. Five years later, when Edward died, Chivas took over the business with a partner. In 1857, James dissolved his partnership and brought his brother John into the business, creating the company still known today as Chivas Brothers.

Chivas Regal was created in 1909 by the owners of Chivas Brothers (neither of them family members) with a view to the lucrative U.S. market. In 1949 Seagram & Sons took over both the brand and Chivas Brothers Ltd, both of which today form part of the vast Pernod-Ricard portfolio.

The marketing folk at Chivas Regal describe the beautiful Highlands’ Strathisla malt whisky distillery as the “spiritual home” of Chivas. Strathisla and other Pernod-Ricard owned Speyside malts are indeed the main malts on which this blend is based.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 20/10/2011


Clear, golden amber with polished copper highlights.


Cereal, nubuck leather, honey drizzled mum’s apple crumble nose with pear skin and fresh scratched green apple skin aromas.


Apple influenced harmonious, biscuity palate with cream of soda vanilla and faint clove spice.


Relatively short, fruity, leathery finish.
