Chivas Regal is the ultimate beginner whisky blend as it aims for balance and quality over anyything else. You'll find oodles of herbs, honey, caramel and fruit leaping forth on the palate, the most prominant notes are green apples and nuts with the just the faintest wisp of smoke. It finishes a bit sharp but the aftertaste is pleasantly bitter and salty.
If we had to describe this in a word it would be balance, you'll find tiny hints of virtually every whisky tasting note concievable from sweet vanilla and caramel, green and red fruits, tobacco and chocolate, pepper amd peat smoke. It doesn't emphasise any style of whisky at all and so can be thought of as the representative of all. And that's the entire point of a blended whisky, a base canvas of grain whisky is painted with single malts to create a tapestry of whisky styles.
