A limited-edition 29-year-old blended whisky from Royal
Salute, matured exclusively in Pedro Ximénez sherry casks. Well-rounded and

The ‘King of Whisky’, Royal Salute, has unveiled an
exquisite new limited edition blend: the Royal Salute 29 Year Old Pedro Ximénez
Sherry Cask Finish Edition.
Paying tribute to Royal Salute’s royal heritage of being
first created as a gift for the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, this new
expression by the brand takes inspiration from the Queen’s first official state
visit to Spain in 1988. To celebrate this historic visit that ushered in a new
era of friendship between the United Kingdom and Spain, Royal Salute has worked
exclusively with Pedro Ximénez sherry casks, to ensure every drop of the blend
is finished in these world-renowned casks.
This new expression is a first for Royal Salute, it has
resulted in a one-of-a-kind Scotch with a Spanish influence, capturing the
sweetness of Pedro Ximénez sherry while keeping the unique Royal Salute
signature style at the heart of the whisky. The 29 Year Old Pedro Ximénez
Sherry Cask Finish Edition is a fully-rounded, lingeringly sweet blend, with
aromatic notes of juicy oranges, liquorice and sandalwood on the nose, emerging
flavours of honey syrup, ripe plum and treacle toffee, all intermingled in a
long spicy finish.
