Heading abroad this Christmas? Why not pick up a few gifts from the airport, such as this Duty Free travel exclusive Chivas 18 Ultimate Cask Collection First Fill American Oak Finish, for the whisky enthusiast in your life.
Chivas Regal has enlisted the expertise of experimental Chef Jozef Youssef to explore how the surrounding environment affects the whisky tasting experience. Drawing on his passion for sensory gastronomy, he discovered varying serving temperatures, listening to soundscapes with different orchestral instruments and even the weight of the glass the whisky is served in can alter the taste. Chef Youssef concludes that by magnifying our senses we can discover the true depth of the new Chivas 18 Ultimate Cask Collection First Fill American Oak Finish.
The first edition in the collection has been gently rested in first fill American Oak casks, resulting in a deep golden hue and rich indulgent caramel and vanilla notes. Other notes include ripe plums, orange marmalade, milk chocolate, raisins, along with delicate smoke flavours that result in a sweet and smooth finish.
Chivas 18 Ultimate Cask Collection First Fill American Oak Finish is available now exclusively from Duty Free stores. One litre, RRP $149. This collection will feature two further editions to be launched 18 months apart. For more information, visit the Chivas website.
