The Last Drop story is one of true discovery and vision which has resulted in a whisky that transcends all before it. There were only 1347 bottles left in the old sherry casks when they found them; 70 malt and 12 grain whiskies. 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 - this is genuinely the world's most exclusive whisky. Uncovered by 3 giants of the industry with over 120 years experience (including the creation of Johnnie Walker Blue Label!), it is a whisky "that gives you a reason to live".
Superstar whiskies that give us all a reason to live. The chances of finding another whisky quite of this ilk are remote. It is a one-off and anyone who misses this one will kick himself forever. Astonishing. Unforgettable.

The nose is a pleasure in itself; draw the cork, and, as with a great claret, the aroma rapidly fills the room, with the scents of dried fruit, nuts, chocolate and toffee. When you finally taste the whisky, it's another revelation. It is sweet, like a new-make distillate, but round and liquorous. When at last you have swallowed a drop, the flavour stays in your mouth for an age. Forgive the flowery language; this is inspiring stuff.

The dark-amber spirit has remained surprisingly fresh and generous, and it exhibits amazing depth and a near-perfect texture of fine silk. Bottled at cask strength (104 proof) with no chilling, filtering, or coloration, this trophy whisky exhibits lush aromas of toast, plum, prune, bittersweet chocolate, sherry wood, dark molasses, soft herbs, and dried fruits. Its exceptionally long finish satisfies to the very last drop.

A 12YO 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 yrs (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 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.

Nose: Big but balanced. Rich sherried notes, toffee and toastiness, then plums, prunes and dried fruit emerge followed by dark chocolate and crème caramel. Palate: Rich, velvety texture. Distinct dryness and light oakiness lead, then recede as sherried, plum, prune, crème caramel nuances emerge as an integrated package of flavours, followed by dark chocolate and digestive biscuits. Finish: Rich, dried fruit, sherried notes, cherry jam, extending with distinct oakiness and tastiness.
