The ‘King of Whisky’, Royal Salute has unveiled the latest addition to its permanent range, a new 25 Year Old Scotch whisky, The Treasured Blend, available exclusively in airports and duty-free stores from November.
The first 25 Year Old expression in the Royal Salute portfolio, The Treasured Blend has been created by Master Blender Sandy Hyslop and has been inspired by the Crown Jewels of England, bringing together precious and powerful whiskies first laid down a quarter of a century ago, today fit for modern royalty.
It follows the recent release of The Malts Blend and The Lost Blend, which joined The Signature Blend as permanent additions to the 21 Year Old portfolio in July 2019.
Royal Salute was first created as a gift for the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953 and has since been the official partner of all ceremonial royal gun salutes fired at the Tower of London, also home to and custodians of the Royal Regalia, or Crown Jewels.
Royal Salute Master Blender, Sandy Hyslop, said of The Treasured Blend: “In a similar vein to the Tower of London, a British icon home to the Crown Jewels that’s very dear to our hearts, the Royal Salute Vaults in Speyside protects a rare collection of some of our most precious casks.
“It’s these ‘treasures’ of exceptional whisky that have been patiently matured for more than 25 years and expertly crafted to make The Treasured Blend, an exceptional whisky with an unmatched depth of flavour that only time allows.”
The Treasured Blend imparts a decadent sweetness with hints of spices and notes of stewed fruit, treacle, toffee and dark chocolate that culminate in an exceptionally long, dry and slightly spicy finish.
The whisky is housed in Royal Salute’s signature porcelain flagon, enhanced with sophisticated gold detailing and a sapphire jewelled stopper that is reminiscent of the precious stones set within the Imperial State Crown. Each flagon is individually numbered, cementing this latest ‘treasure’ as a true collector’s item.
