Cutty Sark Art Deco Limited Edition 33 year old, 41.7%

Price: $989 Issue: Spring 2015 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

Imagine sipping this sophisticated libation at the supper club turned out in your best bib and tucker. There's a purity to it, with aromas of fresh red apples, raisins in honey, ground cinnamon, and nutmeg, leading to bitter orange oils and a storm of black pepper fading to tropical fruit, layered caramel, and sugared almonds. Hold this long in the mouth, as it possesses a changing, multi-faceted character. As Cab Calloway said, “This is Hep.” (3,456 bottles)£650
