This first release from the series which is exclusive to Global Travel Retail, is said to magnify the luscious red fruits and subtle sweetness of the original Chivas 18 Year Old.

Commenting on the launch, Sandy Hyslop, said: “Every Chivas Regal whisky has its own unique formula and is a selection of many aged malt and grain whiskies, each with their own character, flavour and individual taste. This beautiful new expression compliments and elevates the classic, and world renowned, Chivas flavours perfectly through a full finish in outstanding Margaux wine casks. This beautiful new 18 year old expression brings rich, fruity flavour notes reminiscent of homemade raspberry jam followed by runny golden honey and balanced by soft red toffee apples with an incredibly long finish.”

Chivas 18 Year Old Margaux Cask Finish Edition, will be available later this month from Global Travel Retail outlets, for a RRP of $137.00.
