The Last Drop 1982 Bourbon

Age can be good or bad, depending on the context — but when it comes to whiskey, age is almost always a desirable trait. That being said, a true whiskey aficionado knows the difference between a newly-crafted spirit and one that’s aged well — the latter of which has emerged in the form of The Last Drop’s first ever American whiskey, the 1982 Kentucky Straight Bourbon.

The whiskey itself is an 18-year bourbon that was pulled from the original barrel in Frankfort, Kentucky around the turn of the century for optimal maturity. The George T. Stagg Distillery (now Buffalo Trace) helped The Last Drop to procure an extremely limited 44-unit release, with only 25 bottles making their way to the U.S. market. If you’re a fan of deep, round, and delicious notes reminiscent of dried fruit and honey, you can grab a bottle for around $4,000. Don’t worry, these last drops come with a 50ml sample replica so you don’t have to open the original container for at least a few more years.

Purchase: $4,000
