    Whiskey Advocate

    A 12 year old blended scotch whisky was created in 1972 consisting of 70 different malt whiskies and 12 grain whiskies. The blend was then placed in three sherry cask, where it was matured for the past 36 years (highly irregular, to say the least.) The quality of the sherry casks is quite evident, as is the whisky’s age. There’s substantial malt content here too. These three factors, along with the wide range of malt and grain whiskies, combine to create one of the finest blended Scotch whiskies I have ever tasted. It’s dark, mysterious and enormously complex, with notes of molasses, fig cake, dried fruit, tobacco, dark chocolate, old pot still rum, and polished leather, finishing with lingering cinnamon and mint. There’s no sign of this whisky getting tired at all. I am pleased they bottled it at natural cask strength and didn’t water it down to 40% or 43% abv, which could have ruined it.

    Winery Notes

    There were only 1,347 bottles left in the old sherry casks when we found them; more than a half had ‘gone to the angels’. But what remained was magnificent; it has been received with acclamation around the world. It is bottled by hand and sealed with wax; in this way it will never change – perhaps a treat for your great-grandchildren. But you need not go without. In each satin-lined casket we place a 50ml miniature, also wax-sealed, so that you can have a generous taste. The old way of distilling, shown here, used only peat to dry the malt – there was no other fuel in the Highlands. Today, peat is used with discretion to add that hint of smoke. You can find it in the nose of The Last Drop.
