In 2017 The Last Drop Distillers bottled six casks of a superb, vintage blended Scotch Whisky: Last Drop Release no. 10: the 1971. But they held back one cask, to mature it to the grand old age of 50 vears

In 2020 they released their first rum. an incredibly powerful "overproof* Jamaican Rum. which met with rapturous enthusiasm across the world.

Back in Scotland, however, The Last Drop team wondered: what would happen if they put the remaining single barrel of the 1971 blend into the now empty Rum barrel..nothing ventured, nothing gained.

But actually. everything was gained: a year and a half maturing in this rum-saturated cask has given another layer of delicious complexity to this already multi-faceted whisky, along with increased strength, and it is sure to entrance and delight all those who taste it.

The Last Drop Release No. 29 Tasting Notes:

COLOR: rich dark honeyed amber.

AROMA: On the nose, the high ester notes from the rum cask influence present an enticing and lively invitation. This is quickly followed by the rich fruitiness of ripe bananas, mixed spice and notes of liquorice.

PALATE:  With the added influence of two years in an “overproof” ex-Jamaican Rum cask, this 50 year old Scotch Whisky has now been through four different periods of maturation: in the mouth we can explore each of these. Rich and smooth sweet fruit flavors predominate, and then the dark spiciness of black treacle, caramelized pineapple, cinnamon and a hint of liquorice.

FINISH The spicy influence of the oak lingers, alongside the dark molasses rum influence. A supremely rounded mouthfeel and 50 years of maturation and adventure linger in the memory.
