Last Drop 1971 Vintage Blended Scotch Whisky

Availability: In stock

$4,000.00
First blended in 1983 as a Premium 12 Year Old for the USA, the balance after bottling was refilled into 11 ex-Oloroso Sherry Butts. After a further nine years of ageing, a small volume was siphoned off and bottled as a 21 Year Old Blend. What remained was refilled once more, this time into nine ex-American Oak Barrels. These nine casks were returned to an old traditional dunnage maturation warehouse where they lay for a further 24 years until we bottled the whisky, in its prime, at the grand age of 45 years.
The 1971 Blend can thus be classed as a ‘Triple Matured’ Blend which is probably unique for such an old whisky. You need only taste one drop to be enveloped in the harmonious complexity of this exceptional whisky, and yet one drop is certainly not enough for this old blend to unveil all the rich flavours developed during its long, multi-faceted maturation.
Awarded 97 points and Best Blended Scotch Whisky (Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible 2017)
