A powerful, sophisticated and opulent blend, aged for a minimum of 21 years, this Scotch whisky is named for the tradition of the 21 Gun Salute that is fired at the Tower of London for Royal celebrations . The first taste of Royal Salute brings the subtleties of the nose to life. Sumptuous sweet orange marmalade flavours infused with fresh pears burst across the tongue. The second taste brings in a rich medley of spices and a nuttiness of hazelnuts that have a mouth-filling intensity and then the final warmth from hints of masculine smokiness.
