    A rock and roller August/September! Vacation, family tragedies, back to school, traveling, hurricanes, work and more work, engagements. All this has kept me away from tasting (definitely not drinking). Been trolling but haven’t been much of a contributor. Tonight I will contribute my Cutty Sark experience. A lower cost, blended scotch that is hard(er) to find. Had this opened for sometime and this seemed the perfect pour for me tonight. Salty, briny, maritime opening transports you right to a South Carolina salt marsh during a late afternoon. Blended with the brine is a subtle sweetness of candy corn, apples, pears and butterscotch. Ginger snaps, lemon zest lightly provide a spicy citrus note and compliments the brine and sweet. On arrival, a curiously odd mixture of cream soda and black pepper swirl about. Keep swirling and chewing as it brings forward peanut brittle, orange bitters and wood spice. A slightly weighted and creamy body delivers the sweet and spice. What remains on the palate is wood, spice and sugar (whipped honey butter). A warmed soul ultimately remains. This is a solid whisky that has a good balance of sweet, savory and spice. Easy to drink with simplex complexity with solid pricing. Perfect for those pours you want where you can just enjoy in any occasion; all packed at 50%. [85/100][Tasted: 9/20/19][$39]

    Recommended to me as the best affordable blended scotch for cocktails. Price is certainly great, but this was kind of a bummer. Nose: Sweet fruit, sharp alcohol Palate: SWEET. Slick. Toffee. Butterscotch. Somewhat fruity. Not enough smoke or character. Finish: Sweet (still); some spices and alcohol, but only whisps of smoke. Verdict: Sugar bomb. Not enough spice or smoke. Monkey Shoulder is a better buy. $15 was clearance. I think bottles that are less than 2x the cost deliver far more than 2x the experience. I want to like this so bad. Might be OK in cocktails.

    50% abv color added Non-chill-filtered Nose: fruity (apple, slight pear), cinnamon spice, with a hint of alcohol sharpness. Taste: fairly oily and sweet, with a big hit of peppery-cinnamon spice, toffee, vanilla, red apple, plum, hint of citrus and slight earthy peat smokiness too. Finish: pretty short, with rich cinnamon and sweet fruit, hint of barrel char and smoke. Value: $25-35 USD. Not bad at all. Final thoughts: This is a blended scotch made for cocktails. This would stand up nicely in a Rob Roy at 50% abv, but also ain't too shabby neat. In fact, I don't mind this one bit neat, but for the price, there are cheaper blends out there that can also do the trick at lower abv. Start your flight with this one to set your palate up for the good stuff. Final score: 3/5 (Recommend trying or buying a bottle at a good price) Malt Musing: "You know that burning sensation in your throat when you drink whiskey? That's just your soul healing.

    Round taste. Pleasant. Oily. Spice seems to come through. Drank after eating mild wings.
