Scotch Whisky - Blended

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 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!

Dewar's 12 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
A smooth, steel fist in an ornate velvet glove.

Dewar's 15 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 43.00%
7 Wood bosses around. Lacks subtlety and complexity. Leaves a burning sensation.

Dewar's 18 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 43.00%
Clean, unctuous and ripe. Seamless.

Dewar's Founder's Reserve 18 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 43.00%
8 Attractive nose but a wee more restrained palate than expected.

Dewar's House A39
Blended - Scotland - 58.90%
7 Perfect for a dreich November day.

Dewar's Signature
Blended - Scotland - 43.00%
7 Seems restrained at first, but needs time to open up, at which point it becomes quite loqacious.

Dewar's Signature
Blended - Scotland - 43.00%
7 Quite ordinary. Surprisingly firey for the strength. Lacks delicacy.

Dewar's Signature
Blended - Scotland - 43.00%
Slightly understated and therefore needs time to be worked at by the drinker.

Dewar's White Label
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
6 Decisive, cleansing and refreshing. A civilised apéritif before oysters Rockefeller and a New York strip steak.

Dewar's White Label
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
Very good balance, as well as having the vibrancy you want in this type of blend.

Duncan Taylor Scotch Whisky Ltd Smokin'
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
7 A well-balanced dram.

Famous Grouse
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
7 Creates the illusion of being massively more malty than it really is. Very good extraction of flavours from the wood seems to be the secret (or part of it). I am in awe of the dexterity of the blender...

Famous Grouse 12 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
A big-boned dram for those markets who want things sweet.

Famous Grouse Cask Strength
Blended - Scotland - 56.00%
8 Like the regular Grouse, it tastes maltier and bigger than it really is. An excellent justification of cask strength.

Famous Grouse Celebratory Blend
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
7 A decent addition to the Famous Grouse flight.

Famous Grouse Finest
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
7 A beautifully mingled aromatic palette. But this whisky would have delivered more character if bottled at a higher strength.
