Chivas Regal 18 year old Ultimate Cask Collection First Fill American Oak Finish, 48%

Price: $120 Issue: Fall 2017 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

And you thought all Chivas Regal 18 year old was the same. Luscious toffee, cinnamon, nutmeg, chocolate praline, dry grasses, hazelnut, and just a lift of lime and peppermint. The palate has fudge-like sweetness, caramel, walnut cake, murmuring spices, orange peel, and toffee banana. Water unlocks watermelon and a fruitier side to its character. The spices push hard through the finish as the toffee flavors relinquish their grip.
