Chivas Regal 25-Year-Old Original Scotch Whisky - Review

Tres Regal

t’s been nearly 100 years since the firm founded in Aberdeen by the Scottish brothers, James and John Chivas, brought to market an exclusive product. Master Blender Colin Scott, pictured at right, was given the challenge to put something together that qualified as a luxury product … and at $300 a bottle, you’d certainly want that.

We are happy to report the Chivas Regal 25-Year-Old Original is not only a luxe product, but it is elegant, smooth and balanced. “I crawled the cellar to craft what is the most expensive blended whisky on the market,” Scott said.

Christian Porta, CEO of Chivas Brothers, said the company was very pleased with the fruit of their labor. “We are proud to release such an incomparable blend, a result of our tradition of collecting a priceless stock of exceptional aged whiskies.”
