Cutty Sark Tam O'Shanter 25 Year Old
70cl / 46.5%
Blended Scotch Whisky
A 25 year old blended whisky from the folks at Cutty Sark, released to celebrate Burns Night 2012. It's named for one of Burns's most famous poems, the fairly epic Tam O'Shanter, a tale of staying too late in the pub and the ghostly visions that Tam saw on the way home. The whisky comes in a hefty wooden box and both box and bottle are adorned with scenes of the horrors that Tam encountered. It comes with a beautiful book featuring the full text of the poem, some history and a selection of art inspired by the story.

Tasting Notes:
Tasting Notes by Martine Nouet for Whisky Magazine

Nose
Deep, dark, concentrated. Obviously sherried. Cherries in marasquino. Dark chocolate. Walnuts and dates. Earthy.

Palate
Sweet at first then a sour grip dries the palate. Oak is obviously leading the dance but in a harmounius 'pas de deux' with spices. Candied ginger and nutmeg.

Finish
Long, dry, spicy.

Comments
Oaky, elegant, rich.

Tasting Notes by Dave Broom for Whisky Magazine

Nose
Rich and round with distinct coffee accents. Lots of ripe dark fruits, plum and raisin, a hint of soft leather/cobbler's workshop.

Palate
Thick and smooth with a very pure note in the centre and lift of lime. Black cherry and toffee. Rounded and chewy, with a cough of smoke.

Finish
Lighter than you expect. Very clean and spicy.

Comments
A bigger Cutty than you might expect but the purity of character links it to the family. Weel (sic) done!

Class Magazine

Appearance: Dark coppery amber with burnished copper highlights.

Aroma: Rich, sherried rancio nose with overripe banana, soy sauce, nuts (grilled almonds, walnut-like oiliness), raisins, sandalwood and a faint whiff of tar.

Taste: Beguiling, sherried fruitcake with delicate peat smoke, tar, waxy orange zest and a pinch of spice.

Aftertaste: Madeira-like eucalyptus flavours emerge in the long, delicately spiced finish.

Producer's Tasting Notes
Nose: Drifting incense, exotic spices, jasmine, anise and sandalwood dance and leap out of the glass. Muscular sherried sweetness, vanilla candle wax, rich fruitcake and honey sweetness cavort with aromatic spices and blood orange zest, soft peat smoke and hints of tar

Palate: Full-bodied, boisterous and sweet with a darkly sinister menace, rich velvet curtains surround dark chocolate, eucalyptus, cracked black pepper and drying mint with rich, full, sherry sweetness and toffee

Finish: Lingering, long, rich and sweet yet spicy
