Chivas Regal Extra Scotch Whisky - Spirits Worth Raising

Chivas Regal Extra Scotch Whisky

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.James and John Chivas, who joined the family business in the mid-19th century, noticed a growing demand among their affluent customers for a smoother whisky. Unsatisfied with the products currently available on the market, James and John began experimenting with their own proprietary blends, quickly building a reputation as pioneers in the art of whisky blending. The duo released their first blend, Royal Glen Dee, in the 1850s, followed shortly thereafter by Royal Strathythan, each providing a springboard for future Chivas Regal creations.Today, Chivas Regal calls Strathisla Distillery in Speyside, Scotland its home. There, Master Distiller Colin Scott, who has over 40 years experience in the industry, continues the Chivas Brothers tradition which began nearly two centuries ago. To create Chivas Regals signature smoothness, Scott blends single malt whisky produced at the Strathisla Distillery with dozens of other single malts, ultimately producing a scotch that is greater than the sum of its parts."To first become a Chivas Regal blender, you have to spend time with your master blender and many whiskies to understand our unique style of blending," Scott says. "Each Chivas Brother blender forms part of a chain, which stretches right back to the creation of James and John Chivas first luxury blended whisky."The newest member of the Chivas Regal Family, Chivas Regal Extra Blended Scotch Whisky is created with an exceptional blend of rare whiskies aged in Oloroso sherry casks from Jerez, Spain. As a result, the whisky has dark shade and aromas of pear, melon, creamy toffee and milk chocolate. The palate is filled with ginger, syrup, vanilla, caramel and more pear notes, and leads to a beautiful finish complete with hints of almond and cinnamon.Chivas Regal Extra Blended Scotch Whisky earned a Gold Medal at the 2015 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
