21-YEAR-OLD

The Peated Blend

At the heart of The Peated Blend are rare whiskies rescued from
distilleries that have vanished into the mist.

A perfectly peated Scotch whisky

This irreplaceable Scotch whisky blend features the ’lost’ Imperial Distillery at its heart.

Named in honour of the British monarchy, the distillery was created in the same year as Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee and was topped with a gilded cast iron crown in tribute to the momentous event. Although it opened in 1897, the Imperial Distillery only produced Whisky for 46 years, leaving a limited and precious legacy.

Tasting notes

NOSE

Balanced and complex with notes of sweet orange and peaches intermingled perfectly with smouldering bonfire embers.

PALATE

Juicy sweet pears, fresh hazelnuts, charred orange rind completed perfectly with aromatic smoky peat.

FINISH

Long and smooth with a wisp of smoke.

Reminiscent of the signature Royal Salute 21 year old style, The Peated Blend inherits the bolder profile of the Imperial malt and the perfectly peated Caperdonich malt, resulting in a harmonious smoky Whisky with notes of rich fruits and touches of spice. It is a fitting tribute to the gone, but not forgotten, greats.

Royal Salute Master Blender, Sandy Hyslop
