Royal Salute is widely known as one of the best blended whiskies on the market, this bottling takes things one step further.

A marvellous blend of grain and malt, none of which is any younger than 38 years old. The Stone of Destiny, referenced in the name of this whisky, is a red sandstone block which for hundreds of years was fitted into the coronation thrones of the monarchs of Scotland and later, the United Kingdom.

A perfect symbol for this most regal of drams.
The whisky has fantastic notes of tobacco, old oak panelling, leather and spun sugar accompanied by a sophisticated sherry quality.
The finish brings flavours of woodspice and cracking caramel. A whisky of unrelenting class and style.

This Royal Salute 38 Year Old takes its name from the legendary Stone of Destiny, one of the most powerful symbols of Scotland’s past. For centuries, the Stone has played a powerful role during the enthroning ceremonies of the ancient Kings & Queens of Scotland, as the seat which gave the seal of authority to the new Royal.
This age-old tradition carries on today and was last used at the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II on 2nd June 1953 – on the day Royal Salute Scotch Whisky was launched, as a tribute from Chivas Brothers to the New Queen.
Today, the Stone of Destiny rests under guard in Edinburgh Castle, together with the Sword of State & the other Honours of Scotland until the next Coronation.

Few other whiskies will be able to match this 38 year old for sheer age and extravagant packaging. It comes in a beautifully handcrafted, granite-like, porcelain flagon that bears a gold-plated stopper reminiscent of the hilt of ancient Scottish swords. Each bottle is beautifully encased in an elegant rich red box with a glossy black finish
