A superb whisky, subtly enhanced by the oak. Nice taste. Price worthy. Smooth and perfectly balanced blend.
Among blenders, Mizunara oak casks are highly respected for two main reasons. The first is that they are incredibly rare, and the second is that, once sourced, they present complex challenges for aging whisky. However, if the process is mastered, the resulting whisky is truly unique, as showcased by Chivas Regal Mizunara.
A Chivas Regal edition that pays homage to Japanese whisky makers and whisky drinkers. This is a blend of malt and grain whiskies, some of which have been married in Mizunara oak: Japanese oak that is rare and highly regarded for its impact on whisky.

|Taste||White peach, toffee-coated pears, and vanilla-rich cream. Subtly nutty. Floral and sweet, though hints of baking spices bring balance and body. Still packed with fruit, with a hint of aniseed hiding within.|
|Special Ingredients||Passion fruit, apricot, mango, ripe banana, and tropical fruit with newly sawn oak, vanilla, and faint cashew.|
