Product DescriptionChivas Royal Salute 62 Gun 1L
Charles Julian, Allan Baillie, Jimmy Lang, Colin Scott. Four visionary men, who have set aside over the years a rare collection of the finest whiskies. Skilled craftsmen, perfecting their art by passing on their most-guarded secrets from one Master Blender to the next.
This legacy of excellence has given birth to an exceptional Scotch Whisky, steeped in heritage and stature. Rightly named after the ultimate ceremonial honor in the British tradition, Royal Salute 62-Gun Salute resonates with time-honored traditions. The firing of 62 cannons, an exclusive privilege of the Tower of London, is reserved only for the most special Royal anniversaries. The sculpted crystal piece designed to house such liquid of undisputed provenance and quality, was created by Master Craftsmen at Dartington Crystal. Each decanted is individually blown by the Master Glass Blowers who, pushing the very limits of their skill, mold the elegant shape of the crystal clear inner wall, and delicately coat it with a midnight blue crystal outer wall. The bottle is then hand cut with a diamond-tipped tool so that both the clear glass and tantalizing glimpses of the golden whisky might be revealed through the blue crystal. For the final touch, the crest is then engraved and anointed with liquid gold, all of it by hand. Each decanter is the result of over forty years of care and attention.
The nose is extremely rich with sumptuous fruit notes. Lavish swirls of ripe plums seamlessly combine with a complex essence of sherried sweetness. Magnificent notes of fine dark chocolate marry with hints of warm spicy cinnamon. The palate has an explosion of power bursting with a zenith of intense sweet Seville orange mingles with a superb depth of nutty, oaky flavor. Just a sensation of smoke evokes a top dressing of distinction. The finish is impressively long, lingers luxuriously with superlative structure.
