    Blended Scotch whisky


    Cutty Sark Prohibition

    £30.00 Ex VAT £25.00

    ABV: 50%

    Bottle size: 70cl

    Fruit Cake Rich Spicy Malty Biscuit Butterscotch

    An 'old-school', authentic blended scotch whisky from Cutty Sark, bottled at a stronger than usual 50% abv. This premium expression celebrates Captain William McCoy, who was a former first mate of the US Merchant Navy. Captain McCoy was a famous 'rum runner,'  and used to import and export whisky by the boatload across American waters during prohibition.

    Pale amber - darker than standard Cutty bottlings - with good beading. A rich nose, with some prickle. Fruit loaf with chilli pepper at full strength; a little water raises toffee and malt. The taste is sweet, fruity, malty and spicy, with traces of butterscotch, and a long warming finish. Smooth and mouth-coating with water, now a trace of kiwi fruit; still long and peppery. 


    The name Cutty Sark, was perhaps a reference to the speed required to deliver boot-legged goods into the US: the tea clipper, Cutty Sark, long held the record as the fastest ship afloat. The bright yellow bottle label was a printer’s error - it was supposed to be cream!
