    Royal Salute was developed in 1953 to celebrate the coronation of HRH Queen Elizabeth II. A powerful, sophisticated and opulent blend, aged for at least 21 a number of housed in the classic Wade porcelain flagon, this scotch whisky is named for your tradition of the 21 Gun Salute that is certainly fired with the Tower in london for Royal celebrations.

    The first sip releases sumptuous sweet orange marmalade flavours infused with fresh pears that burst throughout the tongue. The other brings a refreshing medley of spices along with a nuttiness of hazelnuts with an intensity before finally releasing a warmth with hints of masculine smokiness. Long, sweet and fruity.

    Adding water did nothing to further improve this whisky. Not recommended.

    In subsequent tastings, the whisky became much tamer. Oxygen is not a friend of this scotch. Some whiskies seem almost impervious to oxidation. The taste continues to be same after opening.

    Soon after, Royal Salute gets to be more oakey, sweet, smooth, while losing the spiciness and complexity that has been initially impressive upon opening.

    Age Statement Illusion

    Drinking Royal Salute produces in mind the age statement illusion. Whisky companies would like you to think that older whisky is better whisky. Definitely not so. Royal Salute resides evidence of that.

    You’re thinking that since you’re paying more money for this older whisky it must be better, but you know what? It’s not better. It’s boring. It cloyingly sweet, yep, it really is. There isn’t much complexity, hardly any peat whatsoever and almost no smoke.

    Royal Salute is clearly a whisky which is wanting to achieve mass appeal (well for those masses referred to as rich who are able to afford this pancake syrup). Easy drinking, smooth, sweet and wonderfully packaged inside a velvet bag.
