Chivas Regal 13 Year Manchester United Special Edition
Chivas Regal // Scotland
Chivas Regal 13 Year Manchester United Special Edition is a US exclusive release which launched in October 2019. Under the management of Sir Alex Ferguson (1986-2013), Manchester United won 13 Premier League titles--hence the significance of the 13 year-old blended whisky. This is the first 13 year-old release in the US for the Scotch brand. A portion of the whisky was finished in American rye casks before bottling.
BlendedComprised of both single malt(s) and single grain(s) often from many different distilleries; if Scotch or Irish must be aged for at least three years in oak barrels; Irish may include single pot still whiskey in the blend.

"This release from Chivas is all about balance. The nose is clean and bright with buttered biscuit, honeycomb, and more subtle percolations of dried stone fruit in the background. The palate is even and gentle and opens with a very charming buttered pancake flavor. Notes of white pepper and sea salt add some complexity in the finish. "
