Chivas Regal Launches First New Blend in 7 Years

Chivas Regal has introduced Chivas Regal Extra — its first new global expression since 2007.

Chivas Regal Extra continues the legacy of founding brothers James and John Chivas. Blending whisky for 25 years, Colin Scott, Chivas Regal Master Blender has created an outstanding blended Scotch using some of the rarest malt whiskies from the Chivas inventory.

Chivas Regal Extra is a special selection of whiskies matured in Oloroso sherry casks together with the rarest and finest Chivas malts, creating a rich and generous Chivas blend. Chivas Regal Extra has a fruity, sweet nose with notes of ripe pears, creamy toffee and a hint of ginger. The ripe pears continue on the palate, with sweet tropical flavours of melons and soft notes of vanilla and caramel, blending with spicy notes of cinnamon and hints of almonds, leading to a long and fulfilling finish.

"This is our first new global expression since 2007." explains Colin Scott, Master Blender at Chivas Regal. "The mark of its quality lies in its rich and generous taste which we've created by using some of our rarest whiskies built on a rich foundation of malts that have been matured in a higher proportion of sherry casks. This process delivers a profound depth of flavour and a whisky that showcases the character of this unique blend, taking it to a whole new level."
