OK, it’s Cutty Sark…right. Your father drank it, your grandfather drank it. You should drink this variation on the Cutty theme (and the regular Cutty’s not bad either). This takes Cutty Sark’s style and punches it up with a touch of single malts from Islay. That gives it a dark, rich smokiness with a wonderful touch of peat and campfire smoke, but it also reveals a touch of heather and slight peppery notes on the nose. The taste is a great balance of peat and black pepper, with a smoky, lingering finish.
