    DESCRIPTION
    Once the initial bottling of over 50 different Scotch whiskies had been completed, a small and precious remnant was transferred into seven Spanish Oloroso Sherry Hogshead casks, and returned to a traditional maturation warehouse in the Scottish Lowlands. There it began a second, 20-year long maturation, before being bottled at its peak in late 2015.

    Over the course of this slow ageing process the whisky has developed extraordinary richness and depth of flavour, taking on character traits from both woods – stone-fruit and honey from Bourbon casks, and a rich, spicy quality from the Sherry wood. We call this effect ‘double-matured.’

    Only 898 bottles of this exceptional, complex and delicious whisky exist. Each has been meticulously bottled and wax-dipped by hand, and is presented in a forest green The Last Drop Distillers leather case. Each case includes a generous 50ml miniature and a beautifully bound booklet with tasting cards for your personal tasting notes as you explore this exceptional blend.

    Official tasting notes from Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2016:
    Awarded 97 points, "A superstar whisky"
    2016 Scotch Blend of the Year • 2016 Blend of the Year (26-50 Years)

    “You’d expect, after half a century in wood, that this would be a quiet dram, just enjoying its final years with its feet up and arms behind its head. Instead we have a fairly aggressive blend determined to drive the abundant fruitiness it still possesses to the very hilt. It is backed up all the way by a surprising degree of warming, busy spice. There is a hell of a lot of life in this beautiful ol’ dog.”
