Chivas Regal traces its roots back to 1801, when Chivas Brothers was established as an upscale grocery store in the Scottish town of Aberdeen. In addition to selling high-end food, coffee and spices, the store offered French brandies and Caribbean rums to its wealthy clientele. Widely considered the finest purveyors in all of Scotland, in 1843 Chivas Brothers was granted a royal warrant to provide goods to Queen Victoria.
Chivas Regal Gold Signature 18 Year Old Blended Scotch Whisky is made by blending over 20 unique single malts, predominantly from Speyside region, each aged for at least 18 years. The proprietary blending and aging process gives the whisky its rich, amber color, as well as an aroma of dried fruits, melted butter and dark chocolate. The whisky is velvety and luxurious on the palate, where further notes of dark chocolate are accentuated by floral tones and a mild, sweet smokiness. The finish is warm and elegant, punctuated by both honey and oak.
