Review: Cutty Sark (Caskstrength and Carry On)

caskstrength-and-carry-on-whiskyCutty Sark (Cask Strength and Carry On) – 51.40%. Blended.

Light yellow to straw in colour.

A fantastic nose that you keep smelling over and over, it’s got a youthful zing full of malt (if you’ve been on a distillery tour then you’ll identify with being in the washback room at the end of fermentation).

On the palate it’s smoother than you’d imagine for something that may be a little young and certainly high in abv. There’s shovels of malt, there’s beery wart and light fruity tones of summer with just a touch of smoke at the back.

The finish is smooth, warming and long, it’s just fab with woody tones coming through at the end.

Perfectly drinkable at full strength but also takes water well, knocking back a bit of the abv bite.

A great blend this, and one that comes with a cask strength kick all at a great price, what more could you want?! Grab a bottle before they’re all gone.

Sample from Cask Strength and Carry On.
Available from Master Of Malt £34.95.
