    Re: Cutty Sark Composition

    My mom in her bar in Montreal has a bottle of Cutty that must be 30 years old. I take a pull every time I visit. Excellent product. Light, but has a good balance and flavour. It makes a good Scotch Mist too, an American way to drink what indeed is the quintessential American Scotch blend. I like it neat though.

    You should take bigger pulls or visit more often.

    Re: Cutty Sark Composition

    Wow! A Mom who owns a bar and in Montreal. How cool is that.

    Gary if you would share the name of the establishment I'd love to visit on my next trip north of the border.

    Re: Cutty Sark Composition

    Wish I had a bottle from 30 years ago to compare with one purchased today.

    I think I would enjoy a stop at that bar to have pull from the Cutty Sark and what ever else we could come up with!

    As it happens I do have a bottle of Cutty Sark from about 30 years ago! No idea how to confirm the age though.

    Although I think it has been open for 30 years...

    Re: Cutty Sark Composition

    I doubt the fact it has been opened would change it very much but that's an interesting thought.

    Re: Cutty Sark Composition

    Mostly old liqueurs in there, nothing that interesting. I'll see if I can get that Cutty to take home though and bring to a future Gazebo, I'll try.

    On the point of being dusty, if well-sealed it should be good. Oxidation will take a toll over a rather long period but if reasonably sealed and not too depleted it should be okay. It's always that inch or two in the base that seems finally to be stricken, not sure why, perhaps the over supply of oxygen.

    Nothing wrong with old liqueurs. Might find something both unusual and good. But you don't always go to a bar for the drinks. Sometimes it is the company!

    But the Gazebo might prove easier. If you do get it I might try to remember to bring my bottle of old Cutty Sark for a little side by side tasting. Right after the peach brandy face off!
