The Last Drop Distillers, smallest member by far of the powerful Scotch Whisky Association, has launched its latest selection. They have released just two other bottles (a Cognac and another Scotch) to date in their line of limited-edition sips. But now, the folks from the Last Drops delighted us with 50-year-old whiskey. It was originally released as a high-end 12-year-old (under a different name than The Last Drop), but three casks got left behind by the original maker and went unnoticed in a warehouse for three decades – that is, until The Last Drop team uncovered them. Beside this rarity, it is also a blend of 82 whiskies. Jim Murray awards it 96.5 – among the World’s top 20 whiskies. Award yourself this great experience, before there is no more.
Bottled by hand and sealed with wax, your bottle of The Last Drop nestles in a luxurious red leather case, along with a 50 ml miniature, so that you can taste this magnificent liquid before you decide to open the bottle. You will also find within the box, a ‘secret drawer’ containing a signed and numbered, leather-bound book, certifying your bottle of The Last Drop 1950, and with room for you to write your own tasting notes as you explore this extraordinary blend.
Only 338 bottles of The Last Drop 50 Year Old will be available, with a recommended price of £3,000 ($5,000) per bottle.
