Royal Salute has released its latest expression, an all new 21 Year Old Polo Edition, which will make an exclusive debut in DFS Singapore duty-free this month.
The new release described as “smooth and sophisticated” by the company is said to be “brighter in texture and tone with notes of ripe honeydew melon, homemade berry jam and creamy toffee.”
Sandy Hyslop, Royal Salute’s director of blending, developed the new blend from a combination of grains and malts aged for a minimum of 21 years.
The new Scotch whisky is housed in Royal Salute’s hand-crafted, porcelain bottles with a distinct polo theme, unique to the limited edition whisky. Turquoise heroes the bottle and complements three shades of blue to mimic the blue sky and green grass of the traditional polo field. The bottles are embossed with scenes of polo players in action.
Peter Moore, prestige brand director at Chivas Brothers, commented: ‘‘Polo is a noble game of honour, skill, integrity and respect – all values inherent in Royal Salute. We wanted to continue to celebrate the iconic pairing of our ‘King of Whisky’ with the ‘Sport of Kings’, and this new Polo Edition does just that in a more delicate tasting blend ideal for outdoor, daytime enjoyment. We’re thrilled to bring it to whisky aficionados around the world.”
The Royal Salute ‘Polo Edition’ will be showcased at a polo event in Singapore and is exclusively available in DFS Singapore Duty Free shops in June.
It will be available globally from September at a recommended retail price of US$140.
