Cutty Sark Storm
Mellow, sweet and tempting nose. Huge malty, earthy notes followed by sweet fruity hints; a blend that tickles the senses. Woody hints and smoothness abound. Long enough finish. Good stuff! 40% ABV, around £21 (The Whisky Exchange).

Appletiser and Cutty Sark Storm
So… Last year the kind folk of Cutty Sark sent me over a pack of goodies, and on opening I found a miniature of Cutty Sark Storm (reviewed above), a branded glass, and a can of Appletiser. Ideal! From memory, so the story went, Jason Craig the Global Brand Controller of Cutty Sark was over in South Africa and tried out this combination and was so impressed he wanted to share the idea with all… and here we are, sharing in the love while sitting in the (strong!) spring sunshine. So my thoughts:
Refreshingly different! The sweet apple is still there but knocked back a touch by the less sweet Storm making for something slightly more grown up… Apples which have fallen into a field of barley. You could drink a load of this and be drunk before you know anything about it… BBQ time here we come! (This would go perfectly with some Pork and Apple sausages). A cracking idea for a light summery drink with a great whisky base, nice one Cutty guys, I’ll making more of this through the summer that’s for sure! Make sure it’s very cold, preferably stick a load of ice in it.
