The Last Drop Bottles Two Ultra-Rare 50-Year Glenrothes Scotches

Specializing in hunting down and offering up some of the rarest spirits in the world, The Last Drop Distillers are kind of like the guardian angels of the whisky world. And now, they’ve bestowed upon us another rarified release — two highly-valued casks of 1969 Glenrothes Single Malt Scotch Whisky.

Anytime a spirit gets successfully aged for a span of 50 years, it’s reason enough to celebrate. But these two releases are even more special because they’re not just old, they’re also both unique. According to the brand and Charles Maclean — the fabled whisky expert and author who was lucky enough to taste them both — the casks both display similar aromatic profiles, but No. 16203 is drier and less fruity, whereas No. 16207 is smoother and boasts a warmer finish. Whatever the case, one thing is for sure: each of these $5,800 bottles — which come alongside a 50ml miniaturized replica and a leatherbound tasting journal — contains an exceptional scotch unlike any other.

Purchase: $5,800
