Chivas Regal 18 Year

Blended — Scotland

2.0 out of 5 stars
Bottled 2019 18 year old grain whisky is what this tasted like next to the lovely Johnnie Walker 18 year I just reviewed. I don’t know how many drops of Strathisla they decided to add to this, but this is at is core an industrial grain whisky. It’s 18 years old, so it’s starting to not taste like shit, like the 12 year old Chivas absolutely tastes like. But when you have an age statement of 18 years and a pricetag of $56, you get what you pay for. The first nose is where this whisky tries to sell you. It is so sweet. Toffee, caramel, and magnolias. But, in the mouth, this is a letdown. Just sugary and underdeveloped. Cheap grain whisky dominates, and you get just hints of sherry and bourbon wood maturation. The finish is syrupy and slightly metallic. This is drinkable, and serves its purpose best when trying to make an unpleasant task more pleasant; but almost any whisky in this price range can also serve that purpose. Score: 0 (forgettable) How much does a bottle cost: $55-70 How much do I think a bottle is worth: $35
56.0 USD per Bottle
