Chivas Regal 18 YO Gold Signature
Chivas Regal 18 YO Gold Signature, 40 %
I actually reviewed this whisky back in 2013 as well (see review in Norwegian).
Nose: Chocolate, vanilla, caramel sauce, tobacco and apples. The same notes of cold coffee as I get on the Chivas Extra. Hints of bitter oranges?
Taste: Medium body. Peppery with a bitter-ish bite. Peel from bitter oranges, I am certain this time. It is rather sweet as well, but it is masked by the bitterness.
Finish: Medium long finish. The bitterness is now even more oak-like and peppery in character.
Comments: The bitterness/oakiness on the finish is not quite to my taste.
