The first edition of a new collection which aims to celebrate iconic polo destinations, The 21-Year-Old Polo Estancia Edition pays homage to what is universally known as the ‘home of polo’ – Argentina.
While Polo was not born in Argentina, today the destination is universally recognized as the mecca of the sport, home to the world’s most famous players and legendary Estancias.
Argentinian Malbec wine is characterized by its deep colour and intense fruity flavours. The Polo Estancia blend was fully finished in top of the range Malbec wine casks from the high altitude ‘boutique terroir’ of Cafayate.
A meticulous process that requires a talented Master Blender to reach the exact desired profile and ensure the strength of flavours of the Malbec do not overpower the more delicate aged notes within the Royal Salute whiskies.
NOSE – Rich and fruity overlaid with notes of raspberries and blackberries, reminiscent of a luxurious berry compote with a hint of sweet liquorice.
PALATE – Rich and sweet with wonderful spicy cinnamon notes followed by plum jam and indulgent dark chocolate ginger sweets.
FINISH – Long and sweet with a slightly dry crescendo.
