    Given the rising cost of pre-80’s White Horse, the next affordable old & rare-styled high-malt content blend you could look towards is Cutty Sark. I sourced a bottle online after enjoying a sample at a Malt n Copper tasting [WLP84], where I also give some info about the history of the brand.

    N: You can easily spot the grain element. With a trace of OBE, there’s a distinct breadiness, pear & apple tart and a metallic slightly butyric/peppery burnt barley oiliness. Despite how that reads, it’s not a bad nose.
    T: Here, the grain and malt appear fairly matched/proportioned. Slightly oily and bready, sometimes chocolatey/malty [with water in mouth], into a slight burned/toasted barley sugar sweetness and a pinch or two of white pepper. Let it sit, play with small amounts of water and an easy tasty slightly chewy mouthful ensues.
    F: Candid medium-short tasty finish with just a pinch of gingery/peppery heat to compliment the [still only slightly metallic], malty-easter egg chocolate and only slightly cardboard-y barley sugars. Just needs a little softening to bring out its more favourable side.

    C: Worth a punt when you find a largely ignored bottle at the tail of an online auction. I picked this one up for £21, a price point which creates stiff competition for some similarly priced often uninspired & uninspiring contemporary entry-level supermarket single malts.

    [March, 2012]  I had this dram during a FoSM club tasting.  I bought this bottle for 26 Euro in April, 2005.  It was bottled somewhere in the seventies (75cl bottle imported from Italy with 70° proof statement)In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 82,5.  My notes state it is okay to drink (I had a lot of single malt that were weaker)...

    N-
    Light turf, pleasant surprise of soft orange zest and quite malty.
    Does turn to raw spirit after a while, but the initial notes are
    actually quite good.

    P- Toasted bread, cereal, cornflakes and sweet fig. Green and grassy at the back.

    F- Short, quite smooth with rounded sweet and spicy ginger. Meant to be easy and how it should be.

    — at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.
