Royal Salute ’21 Years Old – The Jodhpur Polo Edition’ Blended Scotch Whisky (Limited Edition)
The 21 Year Old Jodhpur Polo Edition celebrates the magical Blue City of Jodhpur, India – the ‘birthplace of modern polo’. This 21-Year-Old Jodhpur Polo Edition is the work of Royal Salute’s master blender, Sandy Hyslop, and comes endorsed by Royal Salute World Polo ambassador and renowned polo player, Malcolm Borwick.
Inspired by the rich spices and flavours of India, Master Blender Sandy Hyslop has composed a bespoke malts blend, fully finished in virgin oak casks. The whisky is reminiscent of the sweetness of a mango chutney with a surprisingly spicy finish. The nose has tropical fruity aromas of juicy mango, pomegranate and coconut are complimented by butterscotch, vanilla custard, and homemade apricot and ginger jam. Rich and spicy on the palate, with notes of dark chocolate, rich caramel and thick set honey overlaid with warming cinnamon, cloves and ginger spice. Long, rich and spicy finish.
In 1953, the young Princess Elizabeth ascended the throne. The occasion called for a tribute fit for a queen and so an exquisite blend was created using whisky from Strathisla, the oldest working distillery in the Scottish Highlands. It was given the name Royal Salute – after the famous 21-gun-salute – and so began the story of a remarkable whisky.
To this day, Royal Salute has marked each significant event in the lives of the British Monarchy and is unique in having only ever used whiskies aged at least 21 years in its blends. It is this unique commitment to quality and tradition that has given rise to the informal motto, “We Begin Where Others End”.
