Launched just last year, Chivas Regal XV 15-Year-Old is the epitome of a seriously blended Scotch whisky need not be enjoyed in a serious setting. We notice that more and more whisky makers are slowly beginning to use Cognac casks for maturation and we reckon this is how the quality and, rich and refined flavour of the whisky is amplified for suit the taste buds of the modern-day connoisseurs.

If we have to choose one, Monkey Shoulder is definitely one of the most solid whiskies which deserves a spot on your home bar. It is a blend of William Grant & Sons’ three distilleries, containing Glenfiddich, The Balvenie, and Kininvie. Smooth, sweet and very easy to drink, the initial wave creamy malt with a subtle suggestion of berry fruit shows off a dandy mix of malt and herbs sprinkled in the blend.

The complex yet confident The Singleton of Glen Ord 15 Years Old with hints of melon, which unveil itself at its own elegant pace. On the nose, the fruitiness is supported by soft spicy notes with a touch of honeysuckle and butterscotch. Spice is more noticeable on the palate, with ginger and nutmeg sitting on top of vanilla and creamy notes – and just like the 12-Year-Old, the finish is long with sharper fruit softening to a spicy end.
