Caskstrength’s C is for Cutty Sark
Caskstrength Creative have once more teamed up with online retailer Master of Malt to release a third limited edition bottling in their A-Z whisky series ‘Caskstrength and Carry On’.
Drinks writers and founders of Caskstrength Creative, Joel Harrison and Neil Ridley, have teamed up with world famous Cutty Sark for the letter ‘C’ in the series, following the success of their ‘A’ and ‘B’ releases with Isle of Arran and BenRiach.
With guidance from master blender Kirsteen Campbell, the pair produced a distinctive whisky to coincide with the 90th anniversary of Cutty Sark.
The 51.4% abv blended Scotch is described as having a scent of light butter, golden raisins and flower stems, with a hint of citrus, and a taste of warming pepper, demerara sugar, lemon meringue pie and smoke.
The limited edition whisky is now available exclusively through the Master of Malt website for £34.95 and each of the 500 bottles has been hand-signed by Harrison, Ridley and Campbell.
The first 100 purchases of Caskstrength and Carry On (Cutty Sark) blended Scotch whisky include a ‘Cask Strength and Carry On‘ cotton bag.
Also included is an edition of ‘The Daily Cargo’, a collectible newspaper with articles from industry experts, cocktail recipes and a glimpse into the creative and wacky minds of Harrison and Ridley themselves.
