The Last Drop 50 Year Old Double Matured Blended Scotch Whisky
This elegant and complex whisky was initially created from more than fifty different Scotch whiskies, as a superb example of the blender’s art. Initially blended as an ultra-premium 30 year old for the burgeoning market in the Far East, once the initial bottling had been completed, a precious remnant was transferred into seven Spanish Hogshead casks that had previously held Oloroso sherry, and returned to a traditional warehouse in the Lowlands of Scotland. There it began its second maturation, which lasted a further 20 years until we bottled it in late 2015.
Over the course of this slow process of ageing, the whisky developed extraordinary richness and depth of flavour, taking on character traits from both woods – stone-fruit and honey from the Bourbon wood, and a rich, spicy quality from the Sherry wood – for an effect we call ‘double matured.’ It is an exceptional 50 year old whisky, complex, multi-layered and truly delicious.
