    The nose is a failure, the palate is unspectacular, but pleasant.
    • Nose
      Slightly alcoholic, fresh and slightly sweet. Some honey. I'm looking for more, but it's going to be hard. It gets a little spicy.
    • Taste
      Soft, creamy sweet, slightly sparkling spice. Pleasantly sweet and spicy to taste.
    • Finish
      Medium long, very slight bitterness remains.

  4. Pyromann scored this whisky 57 points Expert Junior

    Unpretentious whiskey, it differs from the average with an unusual character, but somewhat insignificant, for my taste there is a lot of caramel
    • Nose
      Caramel, salty nuts, faint hints of grass freshness
    • Taste
      Weak sweet grass, plant tones, in the background of caramels
    • Finish
      Pleasantly sweet, long, but weak

  5. Shane_IL scored this whisky 70 points Expert Senior

    A simple and straightforward blend
    • Nose
      De-flavoured grape juice (the stuff they use to sweeten fruit juice). Straw. Pears. Sultanas. Corn spirit. Sawdust. Lychees. Orange peel.
    • Taste
      Dry wood. Canned fruit salad syrup. Bitter lemon. Grain spirit. 
    • Finish
      Short. Simple syrup. Light wood. Bitter citrus.

    Lacking character
    • Nose
      Light, floral, a touch of honey, herbal, grassy, a little sugary sweetness, raisins.

      With water - hints of vanilla.
    • Taste
      Light, weak mouthfeel, light wood, spice, oak, citrus, some acidity, not very expressive.

      With water - a touch of spice.
    • Finish
      Medium, citrus, herbal.

      With water - slightly bitter spice

    Compost

    Cutty Sark was originally developed by Berry Brothers & Rudd. It has been around since 1923. The name is that of a tea clipper that you see on the label – since 1955. The ship itself was built in 1869 and was the fastest in its day. In 1954 it was taken out of commission and can be visited today as a museum ship in Greenwich, near London. We try a recent bottling of this (dirt cheap) blend.

    The nose is very sweet, but also quite grainy. Hint of ale, appels and dandelions. Vanilla and peach, but unfortunately also something that I can only describe as compost heap. Rotting fruit. Not exactly my kind of nose.

    It is sharp on the palate, a bit rough. Again malty and grainy. Apples and vanilla. Fruit cocktail in its own juices. But the impression of stale beer is never far off.

    The finish is mildly spicy and bittersweet, but short. In the back of the throat some smoke seems to develop, but it is gone before you realize it.

    Not exactly an interesting blend. I guess this is more apt to mix with. Well, for 15 EUR a bottle, what did you expect?

    Lots of malt, some peat, very smooth.  For the money, Cutty Sark is probably the best Scotch you can find.  Usually with Scotch, you get what you pay for.  You buy cheap Scotch, don't expect much, but Cutty, while not remarkable is very enjoyable and cheap enough to drink every day without worrying about the cost of replacing it.

  9. HunterRomario scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    I was pleasantly surprised at the blended whiskey, I was surprised by the citrus character and the overall tone, I would also like to look at the older whiskey of this series, where there are mixed malt pieces. In the mixed whiskey category, it is definitely worth a taste.
    • Nose
      It is known that this is a blend, but it will come to me in its category distinctive. Velvety woody, walnut, creamy, with a lot of citrus tones. Vanilla and malt. (82 b)
    • Taste
      On the first tongue, it is spicy, yet spicy, spicy, lemon, creamy, with a pleasant chocolate flavor. (78 b)
