This is the original Cutty Sark 25 Year Old, from when the brand was owned by legendary wine merchant Berry Bros & Rudd. Winner of many awards, this is a superb blended whisky and one to sip and savour. ‘Old school’ blends are increasingly hard to find these days and the quality of most blends has significantly diminished due to the price of aged stocks, meaning good quality aged blends rarely exist these days. A chance to experience old school at a very affordable price (700mL bottles of this often cost in excess of $500)

Cutty Sark 25 Year Old Blended Scotch Whisky 30mL Sample
In 1923 Francis Berry and Hugh Rudd challenged existing scotch whisky standards by producing the ‘Original’ naturally-coloured blended whisky: Cutty Sark Scots Whisky. The market at the time was dominated by the heavier, coarser blends; Berrys created a smooth, softer blend (akin to Cognac) based on the finest single malts, those from the Speyside region of Scotland.
‘Cutty Sark’ is Gaelic for ‘short shirt’ and the whisky is named after the 19th century tea clipper, which was the fastest sailing ship of her day. Although single malts from all over Scotland are used in the Cutty Sark blend, with Islay providing ‘freshness’, the Highlands ‘smokiness’and the Lowlands ‘fruitiness’, at its heart lies The Glenrothes Speyside Single Malt. This malt contributes elegance and complexity, as well as some heathery honeyness.
