Scotch Blend 13 to 20 Years - 2014
World Whiskies Awards
Insider knowledge: Cutty Sark 18 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 18 Year Old whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
Nose: Well-balanced, refined. Sherried peels. Barley, hints of smoke, peat. Fruitcake. Spices.
Palate: Vanilla, dark brown sugar, rum spice. Sherry.
Finish: Long, fruitcake, buttery, fudge, oak.
Nevertheless one of my favourite late night libations:))
