Nose: rich and sweet with concentrated notes of stewed red apples, homemade orange marmalade, honey, cinnamon and moist juicy sultanas.
Taste: incredibly smooth and fruity with flavours of poached pears intermingled with butterscotch and caramel toffees all rolled up in a wonderful velvety texture.
Finish: rounded off with a touch of vanilla on the finish.
How it’s Made
Chivas XV is aged for a minimum of 15 years and selectively finished in Grande Champagne Cognac casks to bring out the luxuriously fruity and velvety flavours. The secret to the exquisite taste lies in the unique way the whisky is blended. The Grande Champagne region (or cru) in France is renowned for producing the finest cognacs in the world and adds a rich, refined character to the whisky. Once matured for 15 years in a variety of different oak casks, some of the whisky is then transferred into hand-selected French oak Grande Champagne Cognac casks before being blended once more with the Original blend. Bringing these casks together brings out the luxuriously fruity notes of the cognac and the smoothness that we’ve come to expect from Chivas Regal.
How to Enjoy it
The subtle influence of the cognac also makes it perfect to drink in new and exciting ways including shots and cocktails. So, whether it’s at a night out or a party, Chivas XV is the ultimate celebration drink. From lickable gold paint to cognac-inspired cocktails, there’s a whole range of ways to experiment with Chivas XV.
