Description

Aroma

The initial nose offers a warm and inviting welcome. The signature sweet notes of honey and vanilla associated with Chivas Regal are still present, creating a sense of familiarity. However, a new dimension emerges – a wave of fruity aromas that hint at the sherry cask influence. Imagine a basket overflowing with plump dried apricots and figs, their sweetness mingling with the vanilla and honey. A subtle note of raisin might also peek through, adding a touch of complexity.

Palate

The first sip confirms the promise of the aroma. The signature smoothness of Chivas Regal remains, but it’s now adorned with layers of delightful flavors. The familiar honey sweetness takes center stage, but it’s joined by the fruity notes detected in the nose. Imagine biting into a juicy apricot, its sweetness balanced by the subtle tartness of the dried fruit. A whisper of raisin might dance on the tongue, adding a touch of richness. The influence of the sherry casks doesn’t stop there. A hint of spice might emerge, like a sprinkle of cinnamon or a touch of nutmeg, adding a pleasant warmth and complexity to the sweetness.

Finish

The finish of Chivas 13 Extra is smooth and balanced, ensuring a satisfying conclusion. The fruity sweetness fades slowly, leaving a lingering hint of raisin and dried apricot. The touch of spice from the sherry casks might linger on the back of the throat, adding a pleasant warmth. The underlying notes of honey and vanilla provide a foundation of sweetness that ensures the finish isn’t dry.
