Cutty Sark 12 Year Old Blended Whisky 40%

A rare blend this which is a shame because it’s exactly the sort of this we should be drinking, complex enough for us to make the effort, reasonably priced and with the all important statement everyone is always wittering on about.

I picked this up from Amazon for twenty quid.

It really doesn’t need more than a drop of water as it’s 40% and it’s very much been designed to drink as it is or with ice.

Nose. Oranges, freshly cut grass, salted butter melting gently, touch of vanilla.

Palate. Light, easy sipper, Lavender and vanilla ice cream, toasted marshmallows and pineapple cubes.

Finish. Woosh.

Easy sipper, well priced, rich and twelve years old, what more do you want?

The Captain.
