Cutty Sark Tam O'Shanter 25 Year Old 46.5% ABV
Cutty Sark Tam o’ Shanter is a new variant of the existing award-winning Cutty Sark 25 year old blend with a distinctly darker, wilder side.
Limited to 5,000 bottles, the glass bottle has been created specifically for this new expression and is based on the oldest in our archive. It features the famous chase scene from the Robert Burns poem Tam o’ Shanter, etched around the entire bottle, as well as a wax closure showing Tam’s face in relief.
Cutty Sark Tam o’ Shanter includes a fantastic book with over 50 illustrated scenes by the late Alexander Goudie, widely considered to be one of Scotland’s finest figurative painters. The book and bottle are presented in a bespoke, oak box which has been decorated in the style of Goudie.
|Colour||Rich, shadowy dark amber as if glistening from a subterranean Gothic fire.|
|Nose||Drifting incense held in the evening air, exotic spices, jasmine, anise and sandalwood dance and leap out of the glass - promising something|
|Palate||Full bodied, boisterous and sweet with a darkly sinister menace, rich velvet curtains surround dark chocolate, eucalyptus, cracked black pepper and drying mint whilst dancing with rich full sherry sweetness and toffee. Waves of flavour and texture envelop your tongue, powerfully tantalising and teasing your taste buds.|
|Finish||Lingering, long, rich, sweet yet spicy. Truly full-bodied whisky with which to face Auld Nick himself. A maleficent dram!|
