    Royal Salute 21 year old

    A belter of a blend from Chivas Regal that comes in a rather affected (and collectable) ceramic decanter.  The nose has vanilla cake and fruity red apples.  With time I also got some cinnamon notes and other baking spices.  Delicious.  The taste is very smooth and drinkable.  Sherry influenced and drying with more red apple sweetness and very intregrated.  Gets creamy with a little water.  Some oak shows up in the finish and a lavender perfume note as well.   Overall affect is very balanced with fruit, spices and oak. Very good but perhaps not quite as good as the Chivas Regal 25 year old (for me anyway).
