An incredibly long-aged blend from The Last Drop, this 50 year old is made up of 82 whiskies (70 malt and 12 grain). The three ex-sherry casks, which were married in, were discovered in the corner of a warehouse long after the rest of the batch had been bottled. A true collector's item.

The Last Drop 50 Year Old Reviews

Tasting Notes

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    Nose: I opened the sample bottle and my nose was assailed by a powerful blast of Spanish oak. Too much? Some may think so, but for me it’s a welcome strength. Charpenté they call it in France; structured, but without noticeable tannins. Behind the wood, there is rich fruit cake, tangy herbs, and a touch of forest mushrooms – this whisky is, remember, fifty years old. The French have a phrase for that, too: pourriture noble, meaning ‘noble rot’.

    Taste: In the mouth, the first impression is of smooth alcohol imbued with rich malt. The high proof hides great subtlety, but a touch of water releases the sweetness on the palate and the complex fruits that are at the heart of this magnificent blend.

    Finish: At the end, there remains the nose. Powerful, glorious. Until you wash the glass, it remains, long after you might expect, filling the room with a lovely, ancient fragrance.
