The Last Drop Glenrothes 1968 Cask 13504
70cl / 51.3% abv
This single cask release from The Last Drop Distillers was discovered in the warehouses of Glenrothes distillery in Speyside, where, in 1968, it had been laid down in cask 13504 and forgotten about for the next fifty years. Bottled in 2018 at a cask strength of 51.3% abv, only 168 bottles have been produced. Each one is presented in a beautiful leather case with a 5cl miniature, custom-made stopper, tasting book and certificate of authenticity.
Nose: complex yet mellow with fruity and herbal notes, before a wisp of smoke.
Palate: mouth-coating and sweet with a pinch of salt and pepper.
Finish: long and warming with a slight menthol aspect.
