An “Extra” to the Chivas family of regal spirits

July 9, 2015

Whiskey lovers will be proud to embrace yet another addition to the Chivas family. The spirit, simply named Extra, is a concoction of fruit-filled excellence spliced with tropical flavors, hints of almonds – throw in a blend of spicy notes of cinnamon. And while it’s the youngest of its siblings in a long family line of exceptional heritage, Extra draws on the rarest of whiskies that have been matured to perfection within the vicinity of a higher production of sherry casks. The result is a flavor that digs deep into the core essence of the whiskey flavor. With Extra, you get that same potent dose of regal chemistry with every sip, with a celebration of melons, soft notes of vanilla and caramel, and hints of almond to finish off a hard night with a good fix of acquired taste.
