Chivas Regal Ultis Scotch Whisky - Spirits Worth Raising

Chivas Regal Ultis 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."Created in honor of five generations of Master Blenders, Chivas Ultis represents the heart and soul of Chivas Regal. Its the first blended malt Scotch whisky from the House of Chivas Regal. Chivas Ultis contains five precious signature single malts, each one hand-selected from five Speyside distilleries. Less than 1 percent of Chivas entire inventory of whisky was selected to make this exquisite blend, representing the essence of the House of Chivas Regal. Chivas Ultis has an aroma bursting with ripe peach and soft red apples, followed by notes of strawberry jam, cinnamon, fudge and honey. The smooth palate fills the mouth with luxurious milk chocolate, echoing the nose with flavors of clementine, orange, and peach layered over a foundation of soft caramel and spicy cloves that leads to a long and sweet finish.
