    The best blended whisky, period. Super rich flavour with strong pepper finish. I love it.

    This is some damn good whisky. Very rich flavours and in my opinion, one of the best blends to be found. I bought 3 bottles and I will buy 3 more. Nothing like standard Cutty Sark, this is a totally different profile. Full of vanilla, toffee, caramel, and a perfect balance of malt & grain. Buy it’ll be glad you did!

    Lovely whisky and deceptively strong; you'd never guess it was 50% alcohol from the smooth rich flavour. One of the best smelling whiskies I've tried as well. It's become my favourite blended whiskey very quickly indeed.

    I must say that I am pleasantly surprised! I really like that it is 50% abv and un-chill filtered. Just wish it wasn’t coloured with the e150a either. This blend packs a punch, as could be expected with the high proof, but also has really nice toffee and slight vanilla notes waiting behind the kick. Peppery on the finish. It also has a fantastic full mouth feel and is quite pleasantly oily. It costs about $37 here in Canada and at that price, it’s a great bang-for-your-buck purchase. I have more expensive single malts, but find myself craving this one often. Go out and grab a bottle! You won’t regret it.

    Very easy, light and smooth, so much so as to remind me of mainstream Irish blends. Salty toffee? Yes. Very distant peat? Yes. But to me it tastes grain-forward with only a hint of malt. It's quality grains, mind you. But in a blind tasting I might doubt that this is actually Scotch whisky. I'll keep trying it from different glasses and in different settings to see if it grows on me. Again, it's not bad, just not in my taste. I would prefer to avoid a rating, it's not fair to rate something that is not even in your preference range, but giving it a 4 - for obvious quality, 50% and being NCF and not too much E150a.

    Fudgey, Beefy and lemonhead seaside peat. It a little young and loves water. But at 50% and unchilled-filtered, makes the most of this blend. Great with company sipper.

    I've had some good scotches (Johnnie Walker Double Black Label, Lagavulin 16, and some others) and despite the price, this scotch is very good. It definitely has that mild peppery kick to it, but is also paired with a soft, sweet butterscotch flavor. There is a minute presence of vanilla and some kind of smokey flavor, but the dominating flavors and scent are pepper and light butterscotch. If you are looking for a good scotch but don't want to spend the money, I'd recommend this. If have a more loose budget, I'd suggest a Johnnie Walker Double Black purely because I like the subtle oak , maple smokey flavor, reminiscent of a light pumpkin spice autumn kick. But Catty Sark Prohibition is in my top 5 liquors. Double Black is just a good autumn scotch. Hope this helps :)

    First time I tried scotch was Cutty Sark - I was not impressed. Years later I read a discussion about this addition and put it in the back of my brain. Strolling through the aisles a few days later and - lo and behold - there it is. So I figure, 'What the hell?' and snatch it off the shelf. Pop it open - dubious, because I'm not a Cutty fan - and I'll be damned, this stuff's pretty darned good. What caught my attention was the alcohol content (50% - where I like it) and non-chill filtration (how I like it). Love the pepper! A serious whisky, and for the price a real gem - enjoy!

    Fantastic blend. Genuinely feels a little old fashioned and possibly redolent of the Age of Swing. There's spice and pepper in there with an obvious robust quality behind the tangs. A splash of water or a couple of ice rocks knock off the corners and makes it a thinking person's dram.

    Do not be fooled by the price tag! This and "Storm" are about as perfect as blended whisky can get.I proved this by blind tasting with 2 "connoisseurs" and asked them to pick the blend-1 blend alongside 2 malts.They both got it wrong! Mellow and smooth,with just a hint of tropical fruit and butterscotch,more complex than anyone could guess.Get yourself some and keep it at the back of the drinks cabinet just to prove a point!

    I love it Amazingly mild for 100 proof. just a dab of water makes it even better. Licorice and butterscotch to me are the predominate flavors. Awesome for the price
