Chivas Regal The Icon Blended Scotch Whisky (700ml)
$3299. 00 Bottle
Finally arrived with special direct import pricing is the new pinnacle of the Chivas Regal range. Described as a “next level blend” of more than twenty of Scotland’s rarest whiskies (including Strathisla, Longmorn and Glen Keith), others from distilleries now lost forever. Master blender, Colin Scott explains the pros of this release: "Quite simply you're buying craftsmanship." He adds, "You're buying the original distillers' expertise and you're buying our expertise with our aged caskets. With [The] Icon you're talking about an aged whisky of well over 25 years. What happens in that time is the whisky loses 2 per cent of its volume per annum - what we call the ‘angels' share’ - so you end up with only about half left. You lose volume, but you gain intensity in the flavours - but of course time is money so the whisky becomes more expensive." Befitting of such a luxury liquid, each bottle of Chivas Regal is presented in a hand-blown crystal decanter created by expert craftsmen at Dartington Crystal. The green glass echoes the original Chivas Regal bottle that was released in 1909. In total, the package is a symbol of utter luxury for a new era as well as a celebration of over 200 years of craft and excellence. As it will never be available in its current form again, it should also accrue value if you're willing to hide it away.
