Cutty Sark Tam o'Shanter is the first expression created by Cutty Sark master blender Kirsteen Campbell and is an extension of Cutty Sark 25 Year Old.

It has been released to coincide with Burns night on 25 January. Tam o'Shanter is a poem written by Burns in 1791, which references the phrase 'cutty sark'.

The bottle is presented in a bespoke oak gift box and comes with a 134-page, illustrated book that "tells the Tam o'Shanter story", said Maxxium today (18 January).

Maxxium UK's marketing director, Peter Sandstrom, said: "We anticipate it will be much sought after by whisky collectors and Burns enthusiasts alike."
