The Last Drop Single Grain 1977 (distilled at Dumbarton), 48.4%

Price: $3000 Issue: Summer 2020 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

Fresh pear, grilled banana, chile oil, cardamom, brown sugar, oak sawdust, vanilla, snuff tobacco, and peppery crackers on the nose. Light vanilla and caramelized brown sugar, then mouth-drawing with apple and lemon peel. A spicy buildup spills into banana peel and banoffee pie; the mouthfeel gains weight over time. Smooth, sweet, caramel finish. (150 bottles) Collectible
