Recently, one of our valuable customers, Mr. Divesh Tehlan, shopped at our store. When he came to know of our special offer of a saving of $8 on two bottles of fine Chivas Regal 12 year old blended Scotch Whisky, he enthusiastically went ahead and made the purchase. Being a Whisky connoisseur, he also shared with us his personal experience of this popular Whisky.

Chivas Regal 12 years old blended Scotch Whisky is one of the most classical and famous Scotch Whiskies, readily available in liquor outlets and premium boutiques worldwide. This Whisky has an aromatic melange of vanilla custard, citrus, hints of apples and cereal grains. It’s quite smooth on the palate, with mild flavours of sweet honey, creamy vanilla, applesauce and a creamy hit of barley malt too. However, it may taste somewhat bitter as it fades down your throat, with lingering notes of sweet cereals, malt and sea salt.

Described as the ‘blend for grown-ups’, it is underpowered but balanced. This is a very refined blended Scotch Whisky. Designed to be smooth and totally inoffensive, this Whisky is quite easy to drink. I would recommend that you experience this fine blend undiluted, but even if you prefer it ‘on the rocks’, this is a great drink to indulge in. It also makes some lip-smacking cocktails when combined with honeyed spice syrup, lemon, orange and other herbs and fruits. If you are a regular Scotch drinker, I recommend that you expand your horizons to Chivas 18 YO and Chivas 25 YO.

You can find this blended Scotch Whisky in India for $75 – $90 in retail stores. But I was lucky to be at the Kempegowda International Airport and pick up two bottles of this fine whisky at the Bengaluru Duty Free Store at the irresistible price of $70. “Two” good to be true, indeed.

Thanks for your valuable review, Mr. Tehlan. We certainly hope you visit our store again and check out many more of our excellent Scotch Whisky brands.
