Discover the Second Edition of The Art of Wonder, a celebration of the transformative power of creativity and the inspiring parallels between the world of art and the craft of whisky making.
Time Chamber By Conrad Shawcross
In this magnificent second edition, Royal Salute is proud to collaborate with critically acclaimed British artist Conrad Shawcross, to produce an ultra-limited-edition collector’s item inspired by his unique perspective on our illustrious aged whiskies.
A blend of the most precious whiskies in the Royal Salute collection aged for an astonishing 53 years, Royal Salute Time Chamber by Conrad Shawcross is a whisky of exquisite distinction. The 53-year-old age statement is a tribute to the year in which Royal Salute was first created, 1953, as a gift for Queen Elizabeth II on her coronation day.
Incredibly rich and complex in character, the magnificent liquid can be withdrawn from the decanter by a valinch — a custom version of the tool traditionally used in the ritual of extracting and sampling whiskies from their casks.
Nose – An immediately fruity nose revealing notes of rich plums, juicy pineapple and fresh mandarines, combined with lavish notes of white chocolate, maple syrup and orange zest.
Palate – The palate deepens the symphony of fruit sensations, with juicy blueberries, sweet red apples, poached plums and homemade apricot jam that give way to complex constructions of rich toffee, homemade shortbread, roasted almonds and spicy stem ginger.
Finish – Remarkably long with a subtle hint of spice.
