ROYAL SALUTE 21 YEARS OLD THE PEATED BLEND SCOTCH WHISKY 700ML 40%
International Spirit Challenge 2021 Gold Scotch Whisky: Scotch Blends 21 years old and over WWA 2019 Category Winner Blended - 21 Years & Over
Royal Salute's 21 years old The Peated Blend is meticulously crafted combining scarce whiskies from distilleries no longer in production, together with a selection of exceptional malt and grain Scotch whiskies. These closed distilleries are often referred to as ‘lost distilleries’ and Royal Salute's Master Blender Sandy Hyslop hand-selected only the most compelling liquids from his collection of casks to create this rare expression. Housed in a beautifully crafted porcelain flagon, the irreplaceable 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.
Message from Master Blender, Sandy Hyslop: "Reminiscent of the signature Royal Salute 21 years old style, The Lost Blend inherits the bolder profile of 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"
Colour: Deep Golden Amber Nose: Balanced and complex with notes of sweet orange and peaches intermingled perfectly with smouldering bonfire embers Taste: Juicy sweet pears, fresh hazelnuts, charred orange rind completed perfectly with aromatic smoky peat

Brand Story: Created in 1953 as a tribute to the British monarchy, the first bottles were launched at the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II to celebrate this momentous occasion. As the ultimate sign of respect its name takes inspiration from the 21 Gun Salute fired at the Tower of London for royal celebrations. This legacy of tribute prevails today as Royal Salute continues to celebrate the extraordinary through momentous whiskies and the occasions that call for them to be enjoyed. Blending depth and elegance, Royal Salute is an exceptional Scotch whisky created from whiskies aged to a minimum of 21 years.
