Nightcap 34 Chivas Regal 12yo

This whisky is a bright straw colour. The nose is light and grassy with a bit of smokiness in the distance. There is also a hint of pepper and spice. Smooth and flavoursome on the way down, and then a wonderful warming resurgence from the pit of the stomach, very dry wood on the palate, but has a definite Speyside sparkle (Very little peat). The finish is long and pleasant with a hint of honey. This is a blended scotch but usually at the more expensive end. This was bought on special for $40 and at that price is excellent value. I look forward to comparing it with the 18yo of which I have a small 300ml bottle.At a function I went to some years back it was suggested that every minute, somewhere on the planet, a fresh bottle of Chivas is being opened. It has a good name and after this tasting I can understand why!
