Chivas Regal 12 Blended Scotch Whisky

"Prince of Whiskies" reads the product label of this classic Chival Regal 12 whisky which is for today's review. Chivas Regal needs no introduction to Scotch lovers.It is a global brand and one of the most famous blended Scotch Whiskies in the world. It sets the gold standard for luxury drinks and it's unrivaled quality stretches two hundred years back. It is a premium scotch with a versatile personality suitable for adults of all demographics.
I wanted to delve deeper to find out about this iconic brand. This is when one of the industry experts suggested me a book "A Double Scotch" which I thoroughly enjoyed reading recently. It explains about the business aspect of Scotch Business and I found it very unique as most other whisky books only talk about the technical aspects like the distillery etc.

It is an excellent and classic whisky, I thoroughly enjoyed it. I compared it with it's competitor Johnnie Walker Black which is similar in taste but found Chivas more smoother.This would be a good introductory whisky for those who have started liking Scotch to explore their palette. Since it is approachable and smooth it is suitable for the ladies as well.

Drunk in a Telephone Booth
A drunk went into a telephone booth and dialed at random.."Salvation Army" came the answer.
What do you do asked the man. "We save wicked men & women," came the reply.
"Well, save me a wicked women for Saturday night." πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜„πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„
