Chivas Brothers Royal Salute The Lost Blend 21 Year Old Blended Scotch Whisky (700ml)
A new addition to the Royal Salute family, scheduled as a Duty Free exclusive. 'The Lost Blend' has been crafted with precious and scarce whiskies, some of them from ‘lost distilleries’ that are no longer in production. Expect sweet pears, fresh hazelnuts and charred orange rind aromas and flavours, completed with aromatic smoky peat.
Other reviews... Nuts sinking into molten toffee wrapped in pure, sensuous smoke on a foundation of cedarwood, dried fruits, and seasoned oak: as exotic as the box’s interior artwork. Sandy Hyslop’s multi-phasic blend draws on closed distillery Imperial’s trademark fruitiness and peated Caperdonich, while maintaining a steady hand on the balance. Toffee sweetness, mixed peel, pepper, nutmeg, citrus, and smoke. Creamy, satisfying finish with hints of melted chocolate and light smoke.
