FF: The 1971 Blended Scotch Whisky from Last Drop Distillers

Blended scotch whiskies are a dime a dozen, although most are not that great, but you will love the 1971 Blended Scotch Whisky I found from the fine folks at Last Drop Distillers.

About the 1971 Blended Scotch Whisky from Last Drop Distillers:

“In 1971 the astronauts of Apollo 14 were busy hitting golf balls from the moon and Disney World was opening its doors in Orlando to the joy of American children… and in Scotland some 40 different distilleries of malt and grain whiskies were busy distilling the spirits that would eventually become part of a truly exceptional blend. First blended in 1983 as a Premium 12 Year Old for the USA, the balance after bottling was refilled into 11 ex-Oloroso Sherry Butts. After a further nine years of ageing, a small volume was siphoned off and bottled as a 21 Year Old Blend. What remained was refilled once more, this time into nine ex-American Oak Barrels. These nine casks were returned to an old traditional dunnage maturation warehouse where they lay for a further 24 years until we bottled the whisky, in its prime, at the grand age of 45 years.”
