The Last Drop Distillers 50 year old Signature Blend Colin Scott, 47.2%

Price: $4,250 Issue: Fall 2021 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick




Mellow soft fruits, honey, and barley crispness, with fire-roasted marshmallow, caramel apple, orange-scented cedar balls, panna cotta, ground ginger, peppercorn, and chocolate on the nose. The palate opens with honey and creamy puddings, then a depth charge explodes, radiating sweet orange warmth, followed by soft ripe fruits, caramel, and barley sugar. Gentle oak and mouth-coating fruits finish this stunning composition. (500 bottles; 125 for the U.S.)
