Color - Light Caramel
Bouquet - A wonderful combination of soft bourbon notes, hints of malt and a touch of ginger
Taste - Very lightly malted with a rich mouth feel. Notes of drier oak balanced by hints of perfect bitter sweetness. Long with notes of chocolate and spices. Rich and sophisticated
Malt Advocate 91 points - The Last Drop 1965 Blend 48 year old
Originally blended, then recasked into fresh bourbon wood three decades ago, the nose of ripened peaches, cooked pear, pecan nuts, menthol, clove, and vanilla make for a compelling combination. A surprising lift of red summer fruits as this bright whisky sashays around the mouth, the complexity measured out in installments; plum sauce, toasted oak, coffee bean, gingersnaps, clove, licorice, and hints of savory juices. It dances on and on with the whirling wood spices in no hurry whatsoever. (592 bottles)
