Review #4 Chivas 12:

Rockin’ the reviews:

Chivas Regal  12 yo Blended Scotch Whisky

**Color:** Amber + 1, Apple Juice

**Nose:**  Floral, Marshmallows, Syrup,  Brown Sugar, Grain, Hay, Carmel, a bit Edgy

**Mouthfeel:**  Thin and quick

**Taste:**  Light, Sweet, Oak, Grain, Red Apples

**Finish:**  Quick, Light Syrup, Sunflower Seeds, Match Sulphur, Plastic, Polish, Acetone

**With Water:**  Nose: Somewhat floral but also More Plastic and Acetone

    Taste:  Thin and more Grainy

**Taste:**  60,  **Value:**  10  **Uniqueness:**  2  **Buy Again:** 2  ** Total:**  74

Personally I haven’t found too many blends I wish to spend much money on, therefore I will continue to find the smallest quantity possible for purchase before sinking more than $25 for a 750ml bottle.  This is a blended whisky that is right at, or in some cases, surpassing the single malt price range, depending on where you are buying it.  And this is also where I have the biggest problem with it.  Quite honestly not a bad blend and fairly drinkable, yet not outstanding in my opinion either.  For about ten bucks less a 750ml bottle I might keep one around, but again I can’t justify purchasing it at a single malt price point.  I read the older expressions are nice, but very pricy for what you get ( kind of like another blend we all love to dismantle ).
