62 Gun Salute
The American Oak Reserve

An inspiring new addition to Royal Salute’s 62 Gun Salute range,
the American Oak Reserve encapsulates the immense power
of the gun salute ceremony.

A remarkable
depth of flavour

Crafted from over 50 precious malt and grain whiskies, with a higher proportion aged exclusively in the finest American Oak casks for a remarkable depth of flavour, the blend is carefully composed to evoke the powerful experience of watching the gun salute ceremony.

Housed in a striking ruby-red flagon, representative of the Black Prince’s Ruby set in the Imperial State Crown of England, The American Oak Reserve celebrates the grandeur and spectacle of the occasion.

Tasting notes


Sweet notes of vanilla fudge, freshly baked shortbread and genoise sponge are intertwined with fruity notes of blueberry muffins, sweet red apples and homemade strawberry jam. With time, hints of hazelnuts, lime zest and toasted oak develop.


Bursting with ripe tropical fruit flavours – namely pineapples, mango and papaya. These give way to sweet notes of butterscotch, vanilla custard and crystallised ginger.


Long, sweet and complex.

The Ultimate Honour

The 21 Gun Salute is a ceremony deeply intertwined with Royal Salute’s history, fired from the Tower of London as a mark of respect for significant royal occasions. The 62 Gun Salute, however, is only witnessed at the birth, ascension, or coronation of the Sovereign. A truly remarkable spectacle and the ultimate gesture of honour.
