In the first edition of a striking new collection celebrating the world of Couture, Royal Salute is proud to collaborate with a rising star of British fashion, Richard Quinn.
The Royal Salute 21-Year-Old Richard Quinn Edition comprises an elegant floral blend, in homage to the bold and colourful designs of Richard Quinn.
Combining masterful blending and daring design, the 21-Year-Old Richard Quinn edition brings together two worlds of craft.
In a bold statement of style and elegance, the blend is housed in a re-imagined porcelain flagon, available in black and white. The flagon is embellished with a petals and thorns motif, personally designed by Richard Quinn. The whisky was fashioned by Royal Salute Master Blender Sandy Hyslop using Richard Quinn as its core inspiration – and offers elegant floral notes with a rich and indulgent finish.
The Whisky: Paying tribute to the vibrant designs of Richard Quinn, our Master Blender Sandy Hyslop has created a bespoke, limited edition whisky, using 31 fine malts – one for each year of the designer’s age at the time of the blend’s release, resulting in a floral, fragrant blend.
Finish: A meticulously intricate process that requires a talented Master Blender to reach the exact desired profile, harmonising a myriad of malts to create a delicately floral finish.
Nose: Rich and fruity overlaid with notes of red apples and peaches, combined with creamy crème brulée, hazelnut chocolate, zest of orange and distinct floral notes.
Palate: Rich and sweet with indulgent apricot and mango notes, followed by vanilla, chocolate and ginger spice.
