Colour: Polished Copper

Nose: Very sweet on the nose, maple syrup, apricot, butter with a dash note of mixed spice.

Taste: Extremely smooth from its 33 years maturity. Brilliantly yummy on the palate we got mandarins with chocolate sauce and a spattering of pepper on top.

Finish: Very smooth creamy warming notes that are very long lasting.

Price: This extremely accomplished dram, with matching art deco glasses and book will set you back a cool £650. There is only 3,456 bottles released by Cutty Sark which might find itself snapped up by collectors pretty fast.

Nose: Very fresh but has slightly nutty tones. Like sitting out on a damp summer morning eating Crunchy Nut.

Taste: Very sweet almost treacle like. Has another fruity taste not unlike lychees. Will go down well with fans of Glenmorangie.

Finish: Unsurprisingly smooth after the taste, a little bit winey which is the only down point of this great example of the Highland style.

Price: For £35 a good standard buy and a must have for any Highland fan.
