Palate – From the well recognized Speyside distillery, Glenrothes, which makes the backbone of the Cutty Sark blend. This mild-mannered single malt is honey sweet and light. Warm rye bread and pepper open up at the half-way point. Dry oak and a cashew nuttiness. But it is fruity as well with white peaches and lime zest. Whole cinnamon sticks and deep barrel char warm it up while a fresh heather note tone it down. Subtle and pleasant, a real charming drink sip after sip.
