Chivas Brothers, has today announced the launch of the latest bottling in its Royal Salute Polo Collection; its first ever blended grain Scotch whisky expression.

Royal Salute 21 Year Old Snow Polo Edition (46.5% ABV) has been matured predominantly in American Oak casks, using grain whiskies which have been described by the brand as being “essential to Royal Salute’s signature blend”.

The Royal Salute Polo Collection, is a range of limited-edition blends that celebrate the brands longstanding affinity with the ‘Sport of Kings’, with each expression taking inspiration from the different environments in which polo is played around the world.

This latest release, which is the first blended grain expression to feature in the Royal Salute portfolio since the brand’s launch in 1953, was crafted Master Blender Sandy Hyslop and endorsed by elite polo player and Royal Salute World Polo Ambassador Malcolm Borwick.

Commenting on the launch, Sandy Hyslop, said: “After many years spent experimenting, blending, and sampling, it is a real thrill to finally be able to introduce a 21 Year Old blended grain Scotch to the Royal Salute portfolio. I’m always looking for new sources of inspiration for blending, and the unique sport of snow polo proved to be one of the richest yet. The Snow Polo Edition has a remarkable depth of flavour – and it is perhaps fitting that we would recommend that these flavours are best released when served over ice.”

Royal Salute 21 Year Old Snow Polo Edition, will be available later this month for a limited period, from selected travel retailer outlets, for a RRP of $155.00.
