not the best for the price

Like grants good inexpensive blend for the price in the 1960's family bought cutty sark they were out of Grants, Cutty Sark was on sale for 15'99 same as grants Bought a bottle first small snifter was harsh tasted more alcohol like grain you can smell the alcohol a harsh drink smoky notes will look for grants better for the price.

Love it! On the rocks or with soda it's brilliant.The label is great brings back memories of my days on the open sea!

17th July 2020

Price good: flavor okay. Decent.

Price point: Great.

Flavor profile: On the intake, a numbing bite on the tongue tip - light and malty. Finish is warming with a lingering bitter smoke.

Recommendation: I would not mix this. On ice, the flavor dies considerably, but alters the finish from warming to smooth. Personally I prefer this neat and would say that I could use this as a daily nightcap for a few weeks.

A solid, if unremarkable whiskey. Thumbs up if you like a hint of smoke.

For the house VS For the party

This is a scotch you’d give to a guy at a house party who asks for scotch

8th June 2020

smooth, easy drinking.

excellent drinking scotch, "Cutty".

23rd May 2020

Tequila flavor I can't shake

I am a whisky newb, but this tasted like tequila and I couldn't shake it. I really don't care for tequila so I found this difficult to drink.

13th May 2020

Lots of citrus flavors

This is a nice light blend on ice. Lots of citrus flavor notes. When you are looking for a light, easy drinking blend I can recommend, especially on warm days.

13th November 2019

Super whiskey

Very smooth drink with a rich aroma

28th October 2019

Not worth two bits. Hopefully the new owners improve it.

All those reviews saying it's 'harsh' hit the nail on the head. Upon opening the bottle, I got a whiff of something akin to Nail Polish Remover. Even a whole can of Ginger Ale didn't help. When the ice melted down a little, it tamed it somewhat, but not enough. Just to show I'm not a shill, just drink something else; ANYTHING else!

21st October 2019


I tried this once, decades ago. Tasted more like tequila than scotch.

Hard pass forever.

11th October 2019


Almost as bad as JW Red Label.

10th October 2019

3 stars is fair

I gave 2 stars Label Five,gave 2,5 stars to Johnnie Walker,I consider William L,awsons and Passport around 2,5 five stars,so this deserves a 3.Have a refreshing quality,good for hot weather,is a Summer's,s a lemonade whisky...

8th October 2019

Very drinkable

Nice light color and goes down very easily with a little ice.

Not the most complex of flavors, but very drinkable and at a good price point.

25th August 2019

Even for cheap, try something else.

Of the old brands that are still available, this is one I can't recommend. It is harsh and not unlike it's fellow travelers on the bottom shelf, JWR, Teacher's, Clan McGregor, it is medicinal tasting with the hint of diesel fuel that makes it among the last of choices available.

18th August 2019

Not good... really not good

So so bad! Did people used to drink this in the 70s? Pretty sure I could make better In my bath tub. Just buy any other blend whiskey- bells, grouse etc.


It does add to the nostalgic look to a collection... but it tastes like shit

18th August 2019

Don’t buy!!

It use to be good. Tastes very cheap

26th July 2019

Good for throwing up

It will make you throw up on the first sip, I was not aware that there is a whisky this bad.

24th July 2019

Lemon meringue

Very good, very different. At first you might dislike it. Then kept around,you will find that its best 26$ 1.75 lighter you can get. cheers.

9th April 2019

Give it a try.

Very surprised by this inexpensive blend. I was expecting nothing from it, but had to try it. Drank it neat. I think ice, or water would have killed it. It won't knock you over like some blends tend to, but it will cause you to reach for it and pour another dram. I will buy another bottle.

10th March 2019


Horrible sabor!!!!

13th February 2019

Very bad

I have literally thrown up from the first sip! Never have tasted something so awful.

19th December 2018

Good Deal IMO

I really liked this one, and I feel like it's one I'll keep around. Try it and see what you think.

18th November 2018

Not bad......a decent blend with Speyside overtones.

This blend is not in the class of most single malts ;however, it is a good product with a nose of fruit followed by a palate of Speyside with some smoke and a finish of grain and lingering smoke …...I happen to like it and recommend it to anyone who likes scotch not be influenced by those elitist reviews..try it for yourself and make your own conclusions.

30th October 2018

Sharp taste mixes well

Love cutty sark. My favorite drink the godfather mixes well with any liquor best scotch whiskey for the price to cheap to be this damn good.

30th August 2018


Terrible sabor

24th August 2018

Better than expected

I will buy this again. I bought it today on a recommendation from a friend and was happy that I did. Great straight, on ice or in a mix.

4th August 2018


enjoyed this one immensly

18th July 2018

Terrible flavor

Very hard to drink, aftertaste is the absolute worst.

12th July 2018

It tastes like gasoline

Absolutely awful, it tastes like gasoline. However it might be good for removing paint or rust off of your car.

3rd May 2018

Very good especially for price

I really enjoy this blend especially for the price, after drinking nothing but; peaty, smoky whisky it was very pleasant. I get biscuit bread with honey and grass.

27th March 2018

Not what it used to be.

Used to say: 100% scotch whiskys. Now. Who knows?

28th November 2017

One of the best working class Scotch's out there!

For a scotch I have to won't be as easy to please.I get clean citrus,hints of vanilla and wood,kind of grassy.This does have a bitter tone to it in addition with the alcohol.This sounds like a spring or summertime scotch but trust's got the warmth for cold nights!

11th October 2017

Great as a Highball

Jazz age classic is great with soda as a highball. Not as good as Kukubin or Artists Blend but at the price is VERY good value.

Soda and ice brings out cheesecake and almonds. Really refreshing.

28th July 2017

For the price, best of the lower shelf..

Good stuff, reminds me of Famous Grouse, but smoother, less grainy. I need a budget Scotch, and Cutty is the best of the bottom shelf. Better than Johnnie Red, Duggan, and several others I've tried. I also drink Finlaggon Single Malt from Trader Joes, and this will be a good change of pace and blend.

Taste is mellow, yet flavorful. They are right. You want to drink more, surprisingly good finish, no alcohol, vanilla, and caramel.

9th June 2017

A must try

I tried Cutty sark couple of weeks back. I found this bottle from the wine shop and it looked kind of interesting to me. Me and my brother tried it together and I must say the experience was nothing less than splendid. The scotch builds up slowly and feels great when it actually kicks in. The taste is one of the good ones that I have experienced and the length is commendable. It's one of the good ones I have tried if not the best. A complete value for money product.

A very tasty Blended Scotch to enjoy "on the rocks"

If one is seeking an experience with a complex, top notch malt, this isn't it. This is just a very tasty, pleasant generic blended Scotch Whisky, not any particular regional type, blended to be as it states on the bottle "easy drinking". Cutty doesn't pretend to be anything else. Cutty is marvelous on the rocks, refreshing and satisfying. This is a great social drink perfect for sipping as one moves about and flits in and out of conversations at a party. Cutty makes a fine Rob Roy or mix with ginger ale for a tasty Scotch twist on the Highball.

20th January 2017

Good stuff

Got me going real good there bud

24th December 2016

Arkadeep From India

Hits on the very first 60 ml peg. Nice, smooth. But very much over priced as compared to others of the same taste and character.

21st October 2016

Very Weak And Lacking In Flavour

I don't know whom this whisky is aimed at, but it can't be people who really like whisky. It is just too watery and lacking in flavour.

26th April 2016

John B

I love all kinds of single malts but have tried some blends to compare. Cutty Sark is one that
has more character and smoothness. This will be a regular for me now. Love it.

5th April 2016

Cutty Sark unique as it is dependable

Pure as water, A light lemony delicious quaff with a biscuity edge and a Speyside nose. Minimum smoke. Pure and slightly sweet. It is an oatmealier version of its mother malt, the Glenrothes 15 year old. With vanilla sherbet or a taste of Wimbledon on a summer eve. Yum. Good, too, on a late autumn afternoon before or after Sunday roast. And lounging after before the tv.

7th February 2016

last fifth oaths whiskey was a complete dissapointment. it doesn't seem to have the flavors it did 10 or more years ago

'not on my list of reasonably priced Scotch whiskeys

15th December 2015

seems over priced

I just opened the bottle. Sometimes scotch gets better when it's been open a while. Smells like tequila and maybe a little like nail polish remover. I don't know what nail polish remover tastes like, but this scotch does taste a little like tequila. Other than that it doesn't taste bad. Nicely sweet. A little bitter on the finish. I bought it to use as a mixer anyway. I just expected a little more for 19.99 per bottle.

21st November 2015


Tomorrow fresh feeling

18th November 2015

Light and Easy

I'm not much for really strong whiskeys. I tried a heavily peated one that felt like I was drinking pure smoke... what's the point of that? I found myself being embarrassed that I didn't like the "knock you on your arse" strongly flavored, expensive smoky scotches. I'm not a fan of licorice either so forget the cheaper Bushmills. I did find I enjoyed lighter blends like Dewars and Famous Grouse. But now I've tried Cutty Sark and it tastes better to me than the Dewars or FG and still priced reasonably. I tend to drink with a bit of water or on the rocks, never mixed or in a cocktail. So, sorry if you think it's junk or awful. I'm sure your palette is much more refined than mine. But taste is individual and this one is civilized and doesn't break the bank. The nice thing is, if my tastes ever grow up those snooty smokers will still be there. I pick up a bottle of this when I go get my Boodles for martinis and it doesn't add a lot to the bill. Cheers!

28th July 2015

Good base for home blends.

Even as a single malt enthusiast, I have to admit that I actually like Cutty Sark. I find it far more palatable than Famous Grouse, and it ties with Johnnie Walker Red (yes, really) as one of my favorite cheap blends. Cutty was the first Scotch I ever had (at age 13, hehe) so it has lots of nostalgia for me too.

However, this blend really shines as a base for home blends. I use this as my grain whisky base (since it's almost entirely grain whisky) and add my favorite malts in varying proportions to create more affordable yet delicious blends. Cutty goes particularly well with a good dollop of Laphroaig 10 in it. Try this for yourself and you might be surprised.

23rd July 2015


Stuff is the worst. I can't think of a single whiskey anything that's as bad.

15th July 2015

Good Starter Scotch

It was my first Scotch, Cutty and water was something I would drink when I did not want to get drunk and would just sip it. Since then I have moved on to better things, but I would drink it if someone offered it. I say it's a good starter scotch because it is pretty simple and "drinkable" for the "average Jane or Joe" especially on the rocks or with water. This is the reason a lot of American bars carry it America is really not known as a country full of Scotch connoisseurs (at least not where I'm from)

13th June 2015


this stuff is nasty as hell

19th March 2015

quite decent

very clean and fresh taste, very easy to drink - good quality blend, but nothing special !

8th March 2015

answere to albert colic numbut

it is quite clear my friend that you dont drink much (variety not quantity )black gouse is a peated style this isnt, monkey shoulder is a blended malt this isnt, whyte & mckay ? come on now , it tastes like caramel aditive , ok black bottle (old style in green bottle was sublime )the new stuff is young spirit .if you actually compare like for like this product is very good , however taste is a very singular thing , cheers

2nd February 2015


My grandaddy,father,uncle's loved it and I still love it.

1st January 2015

Albert Colic

Typical shite blend for people that don't drink much Scotch. Why can't american bars carry Black Bottle, Black Grouse, White & Mckay, Monkey Shoulder?! It's Dewars and Cutty Sark at EVERY, DAMN, BAR.

20th July 2014

Deacon Jim Huber

I've been a Cuddy Sark fan close to fifty years.

24th June 2014

It is good

One of the good blends. If I am at a loss to decide which one to pick from the store, I pick up Cutty. You can never go wrong with this one.

9th May 2014


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.

15th November 2013



21st April 2013

nice old fashioned blend

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.

26th April 2011

Cutty Sark blended whisky

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!
