Chivas Regal 18-Year Old is a snazzier older sibling of Chivas 12-year. (Chivas also makes, we should add, a 25-year old blend, although we cannot recall the last time we saw it for sale in a shop or bar in the United States.)
Chivas Regal Gold Standard runs $45-$50 a bottle retail, while the has-been-around-forever 12-year old Chivas fetches $25-$35 a bottle in stores.
Chivas 18-Year (80 proof) is a fine enough blend to be enjoyed neat. It shows notes of toffee, peat, and burnt orange peel. It is a bit more viscous than the 12-year old, which makes it more pleasing to swish about the mouth. (Rating: Very Good)
