The Last Drop Distillers, smallest member by far of the powerful Scotch Whisky Association, has launched its latest selection. Fifty years in old and new oak have made it, as Jim Murray* says:
“an astonishing, life-remembering dram of labyrinthine complexity.”
Only 388 bottles exist, and the last lot were quickly snapped up. Old Scotch whisky has been a sound investment for a long time now; the problem for investors is that if you like it, you drink it. But The Last Drop Distillers have sorted that. Each leather-and-suede box contains a full bottle and a replica miniature (two generous drams), so that you can have your cake and drink it, leaving your investment intact.
*Jim should know. He has been following this tiny company’s evolution since it was founded five years ago.
