A 25 year old Blended Scotch Whisky from Cutty Sark, named in honour of the poem and character Tam O'Shanter, created by famous Scots Poet, Robert Burns. The tale of Tam O'Shanter tells of a local Scottish man whostays too late in the pub and ends up having many ghostly encounters on the way home.The whisky comes in a traditional wooden box decorated with scenes of the horrors encountered in the Poem. It is also accompanied by a book featuring the full text of the poem, and complemented by a selection of art illustrations by Alexander Goudie. This whisky was released to celebrate Burns Night 2012, and is limited to only5,000 bottles.
Rich and dark fruit notes on the nose, with plenty of spice. Also intense Christmas cake and oak flavours, which extend upon tasting, with a powerful mix of nutty fruits, and rich sherry. A long, chocolatey and spiced finish - like the legenary tale, this whisky is dark and intense - a fabulous blend.
