Insider knowledge: Cutty Sark 15 Year Old whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Cutty Sark 15 Year Old whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
Nose: Balanced. Marmalade, sherry. Barley. Very gentle smoke.
Palate: Good body, round. Orange peels, hints of smoke, winter spice.
Finish: Medium-length, spice, fruitcake, oaky.
Still a nice dram, especially for the autumn evenings.
