Royal Salute releases 32-year-old whisky

Royal Salute has unveiled its latest expression – Royal Salute 32 Year Old Union of the Crowns – a blend of single malt and grain whiskies aged for a minimum of 32 years.

The result, according to its makers, is a “rich and fruity nose with flavours of soft caramel toffee, dark chocolate and orange with a touch of ginger cake.”

“This unique Scotch unites the timeless tradition of our skills and history with a contemporary understanding of the whisky experience preferred by today’s discerning spirits drinkers”, said Peter Moore, prestige brand director at Chivas Brothers.

“The British Monarchy has been at the heart of the brand since its foundation in 1953 and, as a true representation of the exquisite craft of the Royal Salute blending team, we expect this new expression to become a sought-after collector’s item for international travellers.”

The liquid comes in a porcelain flagon, which takes ten days to make and is embossed with a hand-hammered silver plaque. A black stone set on a silver crown tops the bottle.

The expression is intended to pay homage to the events of 1603, when King James VI fused three kingdoms to create the modern British Monarchy.

Royal Salute 32 Year Old Union of the Crowns will be available in global travel retail from September 2016 at an RRP of US$380.
