Cutty Sark Prohibition Edition Blended Scotch Whisky (700ml)

$79. 99 Bottle
$959.88 Dozen
ABV: 50%
Crafted as a salute to the notorious Captain William McCoy, who smuggled whisky into America during the Prohibition era of the 1920s. McCoy’s impeccable reputation for fairness and dealing only in the finest unadulterated spirits gave rise to Cutty Sark being referred to as “The Real McCoy”. Bottled at a higher 50% ABV (100 Proof – USA Measure) compared to the regular Cutty Sark, this is also a “small batch” run and includes high quality single malts and top-quality grain whiskies. Hand-selected American oak casks add subtle signature flavours of vanilla and citrus.

...The Real McCoy! It's said that during Prohibition Bill McCoy serviced the better speakeasies with proper Cutty Sark; hence the name. If this is a recreation of what they might have been drinking back then, you can see why they kept fighting over it. This is another bold, earthy, smoky blend with oily, industrial notes. There's crabapple, smoke, bitter lemon, grapefruit, and even black currant. It would seem blended whisky is where it's at right now! Great stuff.
