Royal Salute was created in 1953 to celebrate the coronation of HRH Queen Elizabeth II. A powerful, sophisticated and opulent blend, aged for a minimum of 21 years and housed in a classic Wade porcelain flagon, this scotch whisky is named for the tradition of the 21 Gun Salute that is fired at the Tower of London for Royal celebrations.
Powerful aromas of sweet pear and citrus fruits are balanced with the full fragrance of summer flowers leading to elegant aromas of sweet vanilla and dry oakiness.
The first sip releases sumptuous sweet orange marmalade flavours infused with fresh pears that burst across the tongue. The second brings a medley of spices and hazelnuts.
Long, sweet and fruity flavours round off into enhanced subtle notes of sherry and smoke.
