This 45yo blend from the Last Drop Distillers contains more than 40 different single malts and grain whiskies, all of which were distilled in 1971, before undergoing a three-part maturation including time in Oloroso sherry butts and ex-American oak barrels. Only 1,352 bottles were produced. Bottled at cask strength of 47.2%.
Each bottle comes in a green leather case which contains a 50ml miniature, a certificate of authenticity, a tasting booklet and a stopper to reseal the bottle.
Nose: sweet honey and vanilla give way to tangy orange and lemon followed by warmer notes of stewed apple and toasted almonds.
Palate: Fruity sweetness, again followed by a crisp orange and lemon tang and just a hint of freshly cut oak.
Nose: A taste of chocolate orange and baked fruits with a lingering suggestion of smoke.
Only 10 bottles are available in SA, exclusively from WhiskyBrother. Stock will be available by mid-June.
