Product Info: The one that started it all â€“ a whisky fit for a queen. This is a classic, unchanged since 1953, with a flavour and fragrance that will make your heart sing. A celebration to live long in the memory, Royal Salute was created to mark the coronation of HM Queen Elizabeth II. Thereâ€™s history in each measure, a royal tradition thatâ€™s British to the core. On the nose, sweet pears and citrus fruits are balanced with the fragrance of autumn flowers. An elegant blend of vanilla and dry oak is crowned with subtle notes of sherry and just a wisp of smoke. In the mouth, the welcome warmth of orange marmalade and fresh pears is followed by a brave explosion of spices and hazelnut. After the excitement, a trace of smoke lingers.
