The Last Drop are back with their eagerly awaited 10th release and it's a beauty! All hail the 1971 Triple-Matured Whisky! This release has spent 12 years in ex-Bourbon casks, followed by 9 years in ex-Oloroso Sherry butts and finally a third patient stint of 24 years in ex-Bourbon casks, before hitting its prime at 45 years old. Only 1,352 bottles have been filled and the critics can't get enough.... 97 points - "Just how do they continue to unearth whiskies which are truly staggering, absolute marvels of their type?" - Jim Murray
