The Last Drop 1971 Bottling Note

Releases from The Last Drop series always have a story to tell - and this particular expression (unveiled in mid-2017) has quite a tale. It was originally blended as a 12 year old back in 1983, with the excess whisky returning to ageing within 11 Sherry butts. After 9 more years of maturation, a portion was bottled, while the rest was moved over to 9 American oak barrels. It was in these barrels that the whisky continued to mature for another 24 years before being bottled! Only 1,352 bottles of The Last Drop 1971 were produced, and each one comes with a 5cl miniature, letting you get a taste of the whisky while keeping your full-sized bottle sealed for a special occasion.

Tasting Note by The Producer

On the nose, sweet honey and vanilla give way to tangy orange and lemon followed by warmer notes of stewed apple and toasted almonds. On the palate, there is a very pleasant fruity sweetness, again followed by a crisp orange and lemon tang and just a hint of freshly cut oak. A taste of chocolate orange and baked fruits with a lingering suggestion of orris root and smoke.
