What's in a name? Cutty Sark Blended Scotch Whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Scotland. Were it from America it would be spelled Cutty Sark Blended Scotch Whiskey, rather than whisky.
Nose: Light, gentle. Cut herbs, floral, custard, hay.
Palate: Rounded, mixed peels, lots of barley.
Finish: Good length, warming, malt.
A very pale whisky which is smoother than most other brands in the same price range, such as Grouse, Walker etc, the "Sark" is far superior to
to other domestic brands, it's a great shame that it is not readily available on the high street as it once was, shippers tend to price delivery for the one off bottle far too high!

Cutty sark is one of those blends that have stood the test of time and trends, a bit like ballantine's finest and teacher's (much more more in
common tastewise with ballantine's though than teacher's which is a very
meaty kind of blend)and probably will continue to stick around...Deservedly so. Sometimes you just can't beat something pretty ubiquitous,"Granddaddyish" and reasonably straightforward.

I stick to what I know but I was introduced to this whisky, and really enjoyed it. I am drinking it at the moment. Not my favorite but worth the money, especially for someone starting out in drinking whisky.
