Cutty Sark

Cutty Sark
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
Light but balanced.

Cutty Sark 12 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
7 Clean, fresh and refreshing. A whisky for the beach?

Cutty Sark 12 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
Spicier than the standard, but the lifted purity of flavour which defines the house style is there.

Cutty Sark 15 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
Elegant, smooth and graceful.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Cutty Sark 25 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 45.70%
8 The extra years serve Cutty well. It is confident, expressive, expansive.

Cutty Sark Black
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
Decent, but not sure where this fits into the range.

Cutty Sark Blended Malt
- Scotland - 40.00%
7 Decent but not that exciting.

Cutty Sark Imperial Kingdom
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
8 A smooth and caressing blend. Full of charm. The balance is superb. Gives a sense of comfort and relief.

Cutty Sark Original Scots
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
6 The flavours are tightly combined. I imagine exploring them late at night in a vaguely disreputable bar in the tropics. Perhaps it's the name.

Cutty Sark Storm
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
7 A little muted – not singing at full pelt, but not whispering either. Perhaps lacks a bit of direction.

Cutty Sark Tam O'Shanter
Blended - Scotland - 46.50%
8 A bigger Cutty than you might expect but the purity of character links it to the family. Weel (sic) done!

Cutty Sark sails back to UK
“Weel done, Cutty-sark!” roars Tam O'Shanter in the eponymous poem by Robert Burns, full of references to whisky and its emboldening effects. And the ‘cutty sark' of the poem (the old Scots for...
