Chivas Regal 20 year old Ultis 1999 Victory Edition, 40%

Price: $189 Issue: Spring 2020 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

Blended from 20 year old Strathisla, Longmorn, and Braeval whiskies to mark Manchester United's treble—triple trophy win—in 1999, this is a drink of understated elegance. Orange peel, toffee, fine-roasted spices, vanilla extract, with hints of cocoa and malt on the nose. Creamy palate with Whoppers, candied orange peel, orange sherbet crystals, and mild spices, with a later phase of baked orange and butterscotch, it remains creamy and soothing to the finish.
