Chivas Regal 13YO Extra American Rye Cask Scotch Whisky 700ml
Chivas Regal 13YO Extra Tequila Cask Scotch Whisky made by the Chivas brothers can trace its roots back to 1801 with the opening of their grocer’s store in Aberdeen. Aged for 13 years, this blended Scotch whisky is selectively finished in American Rye casks. It is inspired by the many flavours the brothers imported from all over the world to their 13 King Street Emporium and also is a nod to Chivas' huge success in New York, when it arrived with a bang on the American shoreline in 1909. The store specialised in selling luxury foods, coffee, exotic spices, French brandy and Caribbean rum to its wealthy clientele. By 1842, the brothers were supplying the royal family at Balmoral Castle, and in 1843 Chivas Brothers was granted a Royal Warrant to supply Queen Victoria.
The brothers began a tradition of cask-aging their whiskies in the cel-lars beneath their store, and they began to blend their stocks. In the 1850s they launched Glen Royal, their first luxury blend, which eventually lead to the creation of the Chivas Regal selection of blended, aged whiskies. The Chivas Regal home is the Strathisla distillery, founded in 1786 and the oldest working distillery in the Highlands.
Chivas Extra 13 American Rye Cask has notes of sweet, juicy oranges with creamy milk chocolate. Wonderfully smooth with a mellow finish.
