About the blend
Created by Director of Blending, Sandy Hyslop, and his expert blending team, and introduced by Chivas Regal Blender Kevin Balmforth and Chivas Regal Custodian Master Blender Colin Scott in Thailand, the blend is composed of the finest whisky distilled in 1985 or earlier and laid down in a selection of casks including American Oak.
Following maturation in these casks for many years, they were then individually nosed and only the best were selected for this bespoke blend. After expertly marrying the chosen whiskies, the resulting blend was then left to rest in a first fill Sherry butt of exceptional quality. Over the following nine years, the blend developed its unique rich and smooth character with an undeniable intense flavour: a whisky of superlative quality, with rich fruity notes intermingled with a fantastic sherry character.
