Read on to learn more about this historic liquor NFT drop!
What Is The Royal Salue NFT Drop On BlockBar All About?
Royal Salute is a name that carries a deep heritage in the scotch industry. Their innovative ideas extend beyond the realm of liquor, though. This is the first exclusive BlockBar Royal Salute scotch NFT drop. Moreover, what makes this one special is that this is a twenty seven-year-old blend. The cask held a rare Oloroso for 18 months before being filled with the rich blended Scotch and left to finish.
Royal Salute Master Blender Sandy Hyslop perfected the concoction to fascinate the tastebuds with a complex profile. The expression has various flavors including dark chocolate ganache, ripe plums, and freshly baked ginger cake. There are extra notes of dark toffee, Florentine biscuits, morello cherry jam, and cinnamon to further enhance the taste. In addition to the exclusive NFT release, two lucky bottle owners will have the opportunity to enjoy a VIP Tour of the Strathisla Distillery. On this tour, they would get to taste the rarest Royal Salute inventory of maturing whiskies!
Royal Salute Global Marketing Director Mathieu Deslandes commented: “While Royal Salute is steeped in history and heritage, as a brand we are always looking to the future, finding new ways to connect with those that are as passionate about whisky as we are, be it in the physical world or the metaverse. Our partner, BlockBar, has allowed us to enter the digital space in an exciting and seamless way. After two successful NFT launches of singular flagons that were well received, it was a natural progression to release an expression exclusively on the BlockBar.com marketplace.”
