Review and Tasting

Sampled on 19/10/2016

Appearance

Clear, golden amber.

Aroma

Heather honey, heather flavours, delicate cinnamon, nutmeg and clove spice, green apple and lavender. Faint ripe peach, roasted almond and toasted coconut flesh.

Taste

Cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and light clove add balance to honeyed sweet maltiness and vanilla fudge with underlying green apple fruitiness and cleansing zesty lemon.

Aftertaste

Medium length honeyed malty finish with vanilla fudge and lingering cinnamon and nutmeg spice. Very faint creamy peach.

Overall

Although this is a vatted malt rather than Chivas Regal’s more usual blends with grain whisky, Ultis is recognisably in Chivas Regal’s house style with rich honeyed sweet maltiness and vanilla fudge. This is balanced by generous spice with a pleasing underlying fruitiness. Suitably regal packaging completes the offering and helps justify the £180 RRP launch price.
