Named after and decorated with scenes from a Rabbie Burns poem and accompanied by a book containing over 50 illustrations by the late Alexander Goudie, this is a sensationally packaged Scottish gem. A limited release of 5,000 bottles, Tam o'Shanter is a dark and wild 25 year old blended whisky from Cutty Sark.
Nose: Vanilla, brown sugar and rich dark fruit notes. Clove, nutmeg, allspice and marmalade too. Dark christmas cake with a little oak and leather furniture for good measure. Very intense and inviting.
Palate: More dark fruits, fresher now, alongside malt and sherry. Rich and nutty.
Finish: Very long, spicy with plenty of dark cocoa.
Overall: This is simply a fantastic blend.
