Named for the historic ship, Cutty Sark is a blend that's been around since 1923. It has whisky from Glenrothes at its core along with whisky from all over Scotland to give a rounded blend with a little bit of smoke.
In the economy scotch niche, Cutty Sark delivers a fair dram for the price. "Nose": Malty, ale, apples and dandelion. Not offensive in the least. I'm surprised. "Palate": Certainly is sweet. Malty. Fruit cocktail in heavy syrup. Honey Crisp apples. Vanilla is lurking in the background. "Finish": The vanilla sweetness becoming more of a gently spiced malt. Warming too. You are also left with a teensy weensy puff of smoke.

This is truly the best whiskey I have ever tasted and not expensive too.Its light and very refreshing.I like to have CS during summer with just soda.

This is my favorite budget whisky. I find it light and fresh tasting with oak and vanilla notes. The finish is perhaps a little rough and watery, but given the price, what do you expect?

Disappointed for my first try, but I am willing to try it again. I want to like it, but so far I prefer Ballantine's Finest considering it is cheaper and tastes better.

I've had worse. Tried it once alongside a no-age-statement Glenfidditch. Cutty won. To me this whisky kind of tastes like vegetable juice.

Ice is what this whisky is made for, just add a good shot to the ice and enjoy, crisp and clean, wonderful grain and young malt- so wishing for the summer
