The Last Drop Glenrothes 1969 #16207 Description
Filled to a single bourbon cask (number 16207) on the 27th of October 1969 at the Glenrothes distillery, this bottle has spent almost 50 years maturing and mellowing in this single cask before being bottled in 2018. Brought to us by the explorers of malt whisky at The Last Drop company, this luxurious cask has only produced 141 bottles meaning that only a lucky few will ever get the chance to sample its deep and warming unique flavours. With each bottle displayed in a beautiful leather box and complete with a replica 5cl sample and leather-bound book with space for your very own tasting notes, this bottle is the perfect addition to anyone’s collection.
