It’s been 8 years since Chivas Regal expanded its line of luxury whiskies. If you’ve grown to love the classic taste of Chivas Regal, you’re gonna love their new blend, Chivas Regal Extra.
As a tribute to the Chivas Brothers, Master Blender Colin Scott has created an exceptionally rich and generous Chivas Blend. Complimenting its collection of premium blended Scotch whiskies, Chivas Regal Extra is one of the richest, most generous tasting blends, crafted for those who look for more.
What makes this whisky so EXTRA?
Chivas Regal Extra is made up of a special selection of whiskeys matured in Olosoro sherry casks together with the rarest and finest Chivas malts, creating a rich and generous blend, resulting in a discerning interpretation of Chivas Signature style.
Upon your first sip, you’ll notice a fruity, sweet nose with notes of ripe pears, cream toffee and a hint of ginger. The ripe pears continue on the palate, with sweet tropical flavors of melons and soft notes of vanilla and caramel, blending with spicy notes of cinnamon and hints of almonds.
Needless to say, there are layers upon layers of flavor in Chivas Regal Extra.
