Royal Salute was created to mark the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II and has ever since been the official partner to all ceremonial Royal gun salutes at the Tower of London. In honour of the British Monarchy, The Signature Blend is sophisticated and opulent in character; the result of a selection of rare and exceptional Scotch whiskies, including those carefully watched over at the Royal Salute Vault, destined to make the perfect blend. A majestic composition of ripened fruits complimented by hints of spice, every drop carries a powerful and remarkable experience. The elegant blend is housed in a delicate porcelain flagon, glazed in a rich sapphire-hue, representing the precious stones set within the Imperial State Crown.
Message from Master Blender, Sandy Hyslop: "After patiently maturing for a minimum of 21 years, only the finest Scotch whiskies have been hand-selected to regale the senses with this rich, round and velvet smooth blend".
Nose: Rich, fruity aromas and sweet fragrance of autumn flowers. Powerful aromas of sweet pears and citrus fruits are balanced with the full fragrance of autumn flowers. Elegant aromas of sweet vanilla and a dry oakiness are enhanced with subtle notes of sherry and smoke
Taste: Full, deep fruity flavours with a subtle smokiness. The first taste of Royal Salute brings the subtleties of the nose to life. Sumptuous sweet orange marmalade flavours infused with fresh pears burst across the tongue. The second taste brings in a rich medley of spices and a nuttiness of hazelnuts that have a mouth-filling intensity and then the final warmth from hints of masculine smokiness.
