Extraordinary spirits from The Last Drop’s Autumn Collection

New Update


The Last Drop's first Autumn Collection has come with three exceptional spirits, each a wonderful example of their category. One of them is 1980 Buffalo Trace Bourbon. It is the second bourbon bottling from The Last Drop Distillers. It comes from the revered Buffalo Trace Distillery in Frankfort, Kentucky; site of the oldest continually operating distillery in the US.

Drew Mayville, Master Blender at Buffalo Trace has provided his tasting notes for1980 Buffalo Trace Bourbon. He said, "This vintage bourbon is unforgettable as the finish transforms miraculously from a dark chocolate, almond, leather, caramel, and oak to a gentle warming spiciness. It is truly a memorable and extraordinary experience from the last drops of the past.” The whisky is being flowed across only 240 bottles worldwide.

As part of this Autumn Collection, The Last Drop Distillers has launched its first ever rum named 1976 Very Old Jamaica Rum. Ian Burrell, acclaimed rum expert, tasted the rum.  According to him, the rum has layers of sweet spices which evolve in your mouth from sweet peppers to hints of ginger and nutmeg. Only 183 bottles of the rum is being floated worldwide.

Cognac has been at the heart of The Last Drop’s collection of remarkable spirits since its earliest days. The tradition continues with the release of 1959 "Hors d'Age" Grande Champagne Cognac. This single cask of cognac is from the Grande Champagne, the premier cru growing area at the heart of the Cognac region. The cognac has been flowed across only 21 bottles.

Denis Lahouratate, the Cellar Master at Château Sazerac de Segonzac gave his expert opinion on the newly launched cognac.  “An elegant cognac rich in flavours, and full of finesse, with all its elements in fine balance,” he observed while talking about 1959 "Hors d'Age" Grande Champagne Cognac.
