The Last Drop 1971 Blended Scotch Whisky is the newest release from the ultra rare Last Drop collection. It began its life in 1983 and was originally blended into 11 sherry butts where it was left to marry for 9 more years. At 21 Years part of the blend was bottled and the rest was transferred to for a third maturation. The rest of its 24 years were spent in American oak. The resulting whiskey is one of the most complex and powerful blends we've yet to come across. Ultra decadent and complex, but not sappy or overly sweet. Expect a nose of pungent wild honey, roasting nuts, fresh spices and bright citrus. The palate is dominated by stewed fruits pointed with citrus rind and bold vanilla. Subtle phenol pops through as the long pleasing finish last indefinitely.
