Chivas Brothers, has today announced the launch of the fourth release in its annual Royal Salute Polo Collection, which pays tribute to Argentina as an emblematic polo location.

Royal Salute 21 Year Old Polo Estancia Edition (40% ABV) is a blended Scotch whisky, which was finished in Malbec wine casks from Argentina.

This latest release was created by Master Blender Sandy Hyslop, who married the brands signature house style with a contemporary finish, that is said to be a luxuriously fruity blend, delivering notes of raspberry, blackberry compote, spiced cinnamon, plum jam and dark chocolate ginger sweets.

Commenting on the launch, Sandy Hyslop, said: “For this unique expression we were able to perfectly integrate the robust and highly recognisable flavours of Malbec wine casks with our delicate 21 Year Old whiskies – a task that requires constant care and attention. The Polo Estancia Edition is an exceptional blend resulting from this bold marriage where only the finest Malbec wine casks from exclusive Argentinian terroirs were used for final maturation. Incorporating a Malbec wine finish has not only allowed us to give the blend a new dimension, it also helps to tell the story of Argentina’s polo lifestyle in a multi-faceted way.”

Royal Salute 21 Year Old Polo Estancia Edition, will be available later this month from specialist retailers, for a RRP of $150.00.
