Chivas Regal first landed on the American shoreline in 1909. Taking New York by storm, Chivas Regal was the preferred drink of choice in luxury bars around the city. Despite a 13 year hiatus during the prohibition years, Chivas never left the hearts and minds of New Yorkers – and when the dark days were over, Chivas returned with a bang. To produce Chivas Regal Extra American Rye, the unrivalled Chivas house style blend is aged in ex American rye whisky casks – offering a mellow flavour and magnifying its sweet and delicate vanilla notes. Aging in the cask for 13 years not only allows time for our whisky to absorb those marvellous flavours, but also honoursthe 13 years of prohibition.
A delicate medley of light fruity vanilla notes, creamy toffee, grapefruit, zesty orange and lemon citrus finished with a dusting of cinnamon.
