Chivas Regal Extra Launched In Kenya

written by Fred Mwithiga 7th September 2016

You love whisky. You love its rich aroma, its golden-amber hue and that refined taste that meets your lips and uplifts your soul is something you look forward to every so often after a hard day at work. But that’s your usual whisky drink and don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong with your usual, there’s just a lot more flavour and depth in something extra.

The key to launching an exclusive bottle of liquid gold is not as difficult as you think. Take a great view of the Westlands skyline, create smashing cocktails to cater for all, ring in Scott the Violinist and his band, set up a tasting station and the icing on the cake: a dart board to test your aim or show off your skills.

Launched in the exact same fashion at the 9West Rooftop in Westlands, Chivas Regal Extra is a drink worth your every dime. Unlike its single malt brothers Chivas Regal Extra is created with an exceptional blend of rare whiskies combined with malt whiskies aged in sherry casks from the Oloroso sherry bodegas in Spain resulting in a unique blend of whisky tuned to perfection.

What are its characteristics you ask? Your nose will pick up fruity sweet hints with notes of ripe pears and melon, creamy toffee, milk chocolate, cinnamon and a hint of ginger. Once you take your first sip, you will taste sweet ripe pears in syrup, vanilla, caramel, cinnamon sweets and almonds in the background. The end result is a beautifully rounded mouth feel, leading to a long, luxuriant sweet finish perfect for any occasion. How does that stack up to your usual?
