  • Chivas Regal 12 Year Old, Premium Scotch Whisky. The Kids Like It.

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great lookin' bottle
    Cons: Too much bite, even with some water

    Summary: Being in a bar with guys half my age can be fun at times, I also found it could be depressing. It brings me back to an time when I was young and foolish. I'm not sure that being old, fat and foolish is any better but a good time with these youngsters I ... read more

  • This Is Terrible Whisky

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Better than drinking rubbing alcohol...
    Cons: ...But not by much!!

    Summary: For a 'Premium' Scotch Whisky, Chivas Regal is pure displeasure. It provides proof that high cost and high quality do NOT always go hand in hand. This stuff tastes like a ten dollar rotgut, not like something that costs three times that amount. Let's ... read more

  • Chivas Regal ~ 12year Scotch? I don't care if they claim it is an 18year!

    Pros: Not much. It gives money to Scotland?
    Cons: The taste, the nose, the taste. Ted Kennedy loves this stuff

    Summary: Ted Kennedy calls Chivas Regal, "that life-sustaining liquid." The Chivas Brothers and Chivas Regal (Schiv-iz Reagle) got their start in 1843 with a royal warrant to produce their scotch. Located in Northeast Scotland, the brothers, James ... read more

    Pros: Sophisticated, smooth, neat, nice name!
    Cons: One of the most expensive blends on the shelf.

    Summary: It wasn't until I told my grandmother that I had a date with one of the Kennedy grandchildren when I learned why everyone in my family drinks Chivas. "You're having dinner with Ted Kennedy's nephew? Ted Kennedy's favorite drink is Chivas & Soda, you ... read more

    Pros: Smooth and consistent quality
    Cons: none come to mind

    Summary: Chivas Regal is always my first choice when it comes to scotch. Chivas is moderately priced when compared to anything that comes close in quality. Bring out a bottle of Chivas Regal, and there will be no complaints from anyone. Regal has proved itself ... read more

    Pros: reasonable price, decent mixer, better than most blends
    Cons: Single malt snobs will probably not like it, too woody, very little peat flavor

    Summary: I first tried Chivas 12 because it was a gift from a friend and I didn't want to hurt his feelings. Served neat it has a decent flavor but an extremely woody aftertaste. The peat is blended almost entirely away and it has a tolerable burn. I admit ... read more

    Pros: taste, price
    Cons: sometime hard to find

    Summary: A few years ago, some buddies that I haven't seen in years invited me over to their island home in Georgia. As my friend offered me a glass of Chivas Regal, I easily declined, never have tasting scotch of any kind. After a few minutes, I decided to try ... read more

    Pros: Quality and Prestige
    Cons: None

    Pros: Nary a one
    Cons: A public disservice

    Summary: I know what you're thinking: what do people whose traditional dishes are porridge, finnan haddie, haggis, and cock-a-leekie soup know about taste? Well, quite a lot, actually. Unfortunately, we Scots also have a fatal affinity for marketing. ... read more
