CHIVAS BROTHERS ROYAL SALUTE 38 STONE of DESTINY WHISKY
Named for the coronation stone of Scotland’s monarchs, this new release from Chivas Brothers is a tribute to HM Queen Elizabeth II.  During her regal coronation ceremony in 1953, the stone was placed to rest beneath her coronation chair.  The blend is a marriage of Scotch whiskies, each aged for a minimum of 38 years.  Its full robust flavor has cedar-wood and crushed almond characters finished with a sherried oakiness.  The smooth taste hints of dried fruit followed by an aggressive spiciness.  The whisky is packaged in a handcrafted porcelain flagon, adorned with granite-effect.  Every bottle is crowned with a 24-carat gold-plated stopper inspired by the hilts of ancient Scottish swords – every front bearing a handcrafted gold-finished coat-of-arms – and is presented in a red and glossy black box.  Suggested retail is $6OO for a 75Oml.  Available from United Liquors.
