Gavin D. Smith

Nose
Glacé cherries, poached pears, milk chocolate, vanilla, and gingery fudge. Finally, mangos and sweet sherry.
Palate
Voluptuous mouth-feel, with spicy fruit, developing ginger and cinnamon, plus caramel and a hint of marzipan.
Finish
Dries quite slowly to liquorice and dark chocolate.
Comment
The first NAS Chivas Regal, and with a greater emphasis on sherry wood than usual. A valuable addition to the line-up.

Nose
Distinctly woody: sandal wood, pine resin and cedar in particular, alongside honey and marzipan.
Palate
Lots of Christmas pudding flavours to savour: rich stewed fruits, and sweet sherry spice.
Finish
Long and rich, with a hint of spice at the end.
Comment
Rich and sweet: a great after-dinner dram.
