  1. Taita scored this whisky 79 points Expert Junior

    The smell of this whisky is less then 70, but the tase and finish is not that bad.
    • Nose
      Simple nose with sour milk, honey and some fragrances that remind me to spiritus
    • Taste
      The taste is completely different: full body, wood, nuts, honey spices, herbs, some pepper and charcoal
    • Finish
      Herbs, pepper and charcoal linger some time

    I also like it very much.
    Not as sharp as the regular Cutty Sark.
    Pretty thick.
    I couldn't taste the smoke, but it still went well with the cigar.

  5. Dr. J. Russell scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    I'll go with Mark's tasting notes.
    Easily drinkable blend with a nice mouthfeel. In addition, a slightly astringent, warm, medium-long finish.
    Wow and with the second enjoyment, warm bacon smoke in the finish

  6. Andytka3 scored this whisky 76 points Connoisseur

    N- Nutty, frizzy tangeline and orange peels alongside soft caramel and sugar coated banana.

    P- Soft leather, fruit salad. Milky vanilla custard. Peppery.

    F- Medium - long length, eucalyptus, peppery spicy. Much subdue and rounded compare to the standard 12and 18yo.
    — at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.

    Cutty on Steroids
    The Cutty Sark Storm is a creation from Master Blender Kristeen Campbell. The heart is still grain whisky from North British, but the malt content is a lot bigger than in the regular Cutty Sark. It undoubtedly has quite a bit of Glenrothes in it – and who knows? Maybe even some Macallan and Highland Park as well (after all, all these are part of Edrington Group).
    Oh! This is quite a nice and fruity nose indeed. Think banana, pineapple and gooseberries. Even some peach. The smell of the grain whisky is nicely packaged in the fruity notes of the malt whisky. Typical Glenrothes sweetness, I daresay. And that is just fine.
    The body is light, but the malt is tasty. Peach comes first now. Then some apples and pears. Nice development of woodsmoke as well. Pepper and some ginger. Liquorice. This is more than just okay.
    The finish is surprisingly long, sweet and a touch drying at the death.
    This is a Cutty Sark on steroids and quite an improvement over the regular blend. Still only 20 EUR.

  8. HunterRomario scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    It's a very distinct blend, straightforward, and untidy, as if a whipping peasant burned this whiskey, and then proudly poured it proudly with a conspiratorial wink that you would say about his work. Meanwhile, neither Cutty Sark has disappointed me, I think all three of them stand out, Storm, Prohibition edition and classic. Mixtures are a significant over-average.
    • Nose
      Robust, distinctive aroma, dry, citrus, grape bitter and vanilla-like, a bit peppery and varnish. Enough in retro style, much like the style of my auction catches
      distilled at the turn of the 70s and 80s. The directly-compared Buchanan's 12 yo is more colorful and the class above. (82 b)
    • Taste
      Oily, harsh, dry, as if it were a smoky sherry barrel, woody, slightly bitter. (82 b)
