Description

Finish: Medium to long on toffee and caramel with hints of cinnamon, salt and smoke. Water lengthens the finish, making it woodier and more drying. We may sell, license, transfer, assign or in any other way dispose of the Service (including Members) to any third party without any notification to you, e.g. (but without limitation) in connection with any reorganization, restructuring, merger or sale, or other transfer of assets. The colour is a medium amber. On the nose, camphor oil, furniture polish, beeswax and sage. Very floral. Hints of peat and ginger, and quite malty. Slightly sour note - which works here - that reminds me of an SMWS Macallan I had some time ago. A drop of water brings out some peat but really, you don't need it. Rich, complex and balanced. Without prejudice to the section Liability below, the Service may be temporarily unavailable during maintenance, updates, etc. We shall make reasonable efforts to inform you of any unavailability due to maintenance or updates.

During and after World War I, the government sought to lower the ABV of whisky (and other spirits), particularly in areas of munition production. The compulsory ABV of whisky was lowered to 37.2% ABV in 1915 and then moved up and down between 28.6% ABV and 42.9% ABV in the following years – odd-seeming strengths that were round numbers in old UK proof measurements. In 1917, the strength in non-munitions areas had to be 40% ABV and the strength in munitions areas 28.6% ABV. Later, distillers were again allowed to bottle at higher strengths. But spirit duty rises in 1920 – which producers were not allowed to pass on as price increases – meant that it was not economically feasible for whisky to be bottled above 40% ABV. The standard strength we see across the shelves came not from master blenders carefully diluting and conducting taste tests, but instead from a teetotaller who may never have tasted whisky at all. Neat - Very interesting. A richness in mouthfeel, creaminess. The vegetal note translates into the palate. But there is a sweetness there as well. It’s not unpleasant. A little alcohol burn. A pleasant sour note. 21 To wrap this in a nice outro before I set sail on this review, remember: Always be passionate in your palate, stay true to your tastes and proud of whatever whisky floats your boat.

Conclusions

Surely this all seems quite obvious on a surface level and is no different to wearing a t-shirt with your favourite band. Or greater still is this closer to the passionate music gatekeeper who demands the person wearing the t-shirt lists of a couple of songs by the band. If this happens to anyone in an ever-trendy Metallica top, just give them ONE. So that is where this leads. Passion. The opening of the Suez Canal marked the end for sailing ships in the tea trade and so Cutty Sark had to find new employ. It transported a variety of cargoes, including over 10,000 tons of coal, before finding its calling in the Australian wool trade. It would transport more than 45,000 bales in its career. 6. What is Cutty Sark famous for?

The Service has been prepared by us solely for information purposes to Members and the Service is based on information we consider reliable and we obtain the contents of the Service from a number of different third party sources (including Contributions), but we do not endorse, support, represent, warrant or guarantee the completeness, truthfulness, accuracy, or reliability of the Services and any information therein. Our Service is an online platform which provides Members with information (e.g. bottle facts, market-indices, market values and prices) on (mostly) whisky and allows Members to add information to the platform. We do not sell, nor does the Service provide any option to buy, any alcoholic products. There is a very charming story attached to this including bootlegging and all that jazz. Maybe there's some truth in it, who knows, right? But I'm always after the real McCoy. Despite prohibition in the US at the time, Cutty Sark whisky became popular, smuggled in as an alternative to moonshine.Cutty Sark was built for the China tea trade but would carry a vast array of cargoes during its career. Cutty Sark carried almost 10 million lbs of tea between 1870 and 1877. Hein, Kenneth (12 March 2001). "Cutty Serves 20-Something Men Another Helping of Cheesecake". Brandweek. 42 (11): 16. ISSN 1064-4318. The Prohibition – the so-called Noble Experiment – was repealed in 1933. This Cutty Sark was released exactly 80 years after that repeal, in 2013. Cutty Sark was one of the few whisky’s that you could actually enjoy – illicitly of course – in the so-called speak easy clubs. This Cutty Sark is bottled at a higher alcohol strengt hand matured completely on American oak. Records the default button state of the corresponding category & the status of CCPA.
