The Last Drop 1971

Last-Drop-1971-blended-ScotchPrice: £3,000 (US$3,890)
A third from The Last Drop Distillers – released back in July, the liquid started out as a 12-year-old blend in 1983 and only 1,352 bottles have ever been created.

The remnants of the blend were then refilled into 11 ex-oloroso Sherry butts and left to mature for another nine years, before some of the liquid was bottled as a 21-year-old blend.

The remaining liquid was then transferred into nine oak barrels, which were left to age in a dunnage warehouse for another 24 years. The casks were bought by The Last Drop Distillers and bottled in June 2017, having aged for a total of 45 years.
