- ABV 45.7%
In 1923 Francis Berry and Hugh Rudd challenged existing scotch whisky standards by producing the 'Original' naturally-coloured blended whisky: Cutty Sark Scots Whisky. The market at the time was dominated by the heavier, coarser blends; Berrys created a smooth, softer blend (akin to Cognac) based on the finest single malts, those from the Speyside region of Scotland.
'Cutty Sark' is Gaelic for 'short shirt' and the whisky is named after the 19th century tea clipper, which was the fastest sailing ship of her day. Although single malts from all over Scotland are used in the Cutty Sark blend, with Islay providing 'freshness', the Highlands 'smokiness'and the Lowlands 'fruitiness', at its heart lies The Glenrothes Speyside Single Malt. This malt contributes elegance and complexity, as well as some heathery honeyness.
Cutty Sark 25 Y.O. is a deluxe, export-only blend now available in Australia.
Tasting note: Nose: Rich, muscular, sherried nose: liquorice, tar, runny treacle, incense. Water brings a light mintiness with a drift of perfumed smoke. Palate: Big soft and sweet. Treacle again, this time with cold tea, chocolate orange and beautiful balance between grain and malt. Finish: Long and soft. Comment: Cutty with rippling well-oiled muscles. Well done! 45.7% Alc./Vol.
