Chivas Regal Mizunara
Chivas Regal Mizunara is a blended Scotch whisky from the house of Chivas Regal, one of the world’s most premium and luxury brand of blended Scotch whiskies. The Chivas Mizunara is a no-age-statement whisky and was first released in Japan in 2014, eventually being released worldwide.
It has been described by the brand as the conflation of two great cultures, and disciplines achieving the perfect equilibrium in the art of whisky-making.
Few brands match the rich history and illustrious success enjoyed by Chivas Regal since the brand’s inception in 1801 as a grocery store that broke ground under the leadership of James and John, the Chivas Brothers.
The Chivas Brothers had forayed into the world of whisky blending and earned one of their greatest achievements by 1843 when Queen Victoria granted them a Royal Warrant in 1843. The first two proprietary blends from the house of Chivas Regal were called the Royal Glen Dee, and the Royal Stathythan.
By the turn of the century, the Chivas Brothers produced the world’s first luxury whisky as they released the Chivas Regal 25 in 1909 which became an instant hit not just in their homeland, but also overseas, capturing the loyalties of the American elite.
Over the years, the Chivas Regal brand developed a core range with expressions ranging from 12-years, to 25-years, and some truly breathtaking innovations in the world of blended Scotch whisky such as the Chivas Regal Ultis, Chivas Regal The Icon, and the most recent, Chivas Regal Mizunara.
First released in Japan, the Chivas Mizunara was released worldwide following rave reviews from whisky experts and lovers who praised the whisky for its distinct identity and tasting notes.
Chivas Mizunara pays its respects to the famed precision and unique techniques adopted by the Japanese whisky-makers. It is produced by selectively aging a significant fraction of the premium Chivas Regal blend in Japanese Mizunara oak barrels, an extremely rare and expensive form of timber used for making whisky barrels.
The porous nature of the Japanese Mizunara oak allows the whisky to generously borrow the unique flavors from the barrels, and gives the wood a greater influence on the whisky.
The Chivas Regal Mizunara carries an alcohol strength of 40% ABV, the permissible limit for Scotch whiskies as per the legal definition.

An ultra-smooth and easy drinking whisky, perfect for sharing with friends. This 12 year old blend includes higher proportions of Strathisla and Longmorn Single Malts and was created as a fitting tribute to the famously smooth blending style of John and James Chivas. It was at the beginning of the 19th Century that blending pioneers James and John Chivas, two brothers from Aberdeen in Scotland, first combined different matured whiskies to create a unique ‘house’ character. Blending some of the finest maturing malt and grain Scotch whiskies, James and John were able to achieve consistently good results, setting a standard that would be handed down through generations. In 1909, Chivas Brothers made distilling history by creating the world’s first luxury Scotch whisky – a 25 year old blend called Chivas Regal. This sophisticated whisky has since become an international legend. Today, the guardian of the exceptional quality and famously consistent character of Chivas Regal is Master Blender Colin Scott, who has been involved with Chivas Brothers for more than 30 years – 20 of them in his present role.

Paul John 7-Year-Old 2009 Oloroso Sherry Cask Finish Whisky
7 year old Indian single malt whisky here from the Paul John range, finished in an Oloroso Sherry cask!This was distilled in 2009 and bottled at cask strength in 2016 without any chill-filtration or additional colours. Due to Goa's warmer climes (compared to Scotland) means there’s more evaporation from the casks, but the whisky also shows well at a younger age.
Vat 69 Blended Scotch Whisky
VAT 69 is a simple, pleasant blended scotch, utterly lacking in complexity, but with its own virtues nonetheless. The scotch enjoys a mid-gold color in the glass, and the nose is syrupy sweet, with crisp woody notes. On the palate, the syrupy all-spice flavored sweetness retreats into the background, partially replaced by peat smoke and tannin-rich woody flavors. The finish isn’t very long, but it is smoky and warm.
Teaher's Origin Blended Scotch Whisky
One of the first in what Teacher’s owners Jim Beam say will be a line of new releases for the blend. The name “Origin” refers to the blended whisky’s aging process in smaller quarter casks, which would have been used by distilleries in the 19th century. This aging technique also allows for a greater ratio of wood to spirit, heightening “oak contact”, which Teacher’s claims creates a whisky that is 30% more mature. This blended dram contains 65% malt in the mixture, a high proportion, and uses over 30 different single malts with a large quantity coming from the unusually peated highland malt, Ardmore. On the nose the drinker is greeted with malty biscuits, toffee, sweet bright oak, peat smoke and dark honey. The palate is faithful to the nose, but adds a chewy toffee-led mouthfeel and a little bright cereal sweetness. The finish is dense and long with a lingering woodspice note. A lovely, smoky and complex whisky which offers outstanding value for money, particularly in this larger 1 litre bottle.
