THE ROYAL SALUTE 21 YEAR JODHPUR POLO EDITION
Chivas is a constellation all its own — a marquee whisky maker with a top end like few others. Collectors around the globe revere the brand for its extraordinarily small-production, high-end releases, including its 50 Year Old Coronation Cask 2003 (just try finding a bottle for less than $40,000) and its 62 Gun Salute (which sells for upwards of $2,000 a bottle, and which Whisky Advocate called “a work of genius”).
Royal Salute is their limited edition series, and when one becomes available, friends, we don't delay. We go after it. Hard.
And that’s exactly how we came to obtain an allocation of the most recent addition to their star-studded lineup: the Royal Salute 21 Year Old: The Jodhpur Polo Edition, which comes at a fraction of the price of their other small-production, high-end releases.
As with every bottling that bears the Chivas name, it's the end result of painstaking craftsmanship at every step of a long and complex process.
Produced at Strathisla Distillery, in Keith, Moray, the oldest working distillery in the Scottish Highlands, Master Blender Sandy Hyslop and the Royal Salute crew have fashioned a gorgeous and fitting homage to the Maharaja of Jodhpur's Golden Jubilee Cup, the most prestigious competition in Indian polo, held in the Blue City of Jodhpur.
The distinctively lush and richly-spiced whisky powerfully evokes the subcontinent’s vibrant and colorful array of tastes and smells.
It's like taking a trip without ever leaving the comforts of your own home.
Start with the nose, an explosion of juicy tropical fruit, with aromas of mango, pomegranate and coconut all singing full-throatedly, while beneath these lively top notes, butterscotch, vanilla custard, apricot and ginger beat a steady bass drum rhythm. The palate deepens the experience, bringing darker, rounder elements: bittersweet chocolate, caramel, along with a host of warming spices, including cinnamon and clove. That sustained note of spice continues on to the finish, which, in true Chivas fashion, does not end so much as recede, like tide from the sand.
We enjoyed many a fine night in its company, and are excited for you to discover for yourself its power and its charm.
