Two 1968 single casks from Glenrothes coming your way

Going by the name, you would say it is good to the last drop! The Last Drop Distillers has introduced its new rare malts from two single casks from the Glenrothes Distillery, distilled in 1968.
According to a communication from the company, The Last Drop team has spent their recent years travelling the world to hunt down that perfect dram. One of the distilleries they have always held in the highest regard was Glenrothes, home to one of the most acclaimed single malt Scotch Whiskies.
These two single casks of Glenrothes Single Malt Scotch Whisky have spent their lives maturing in the same cask. Despite being distilled on the same day in November 1968, these two casks still have distinct differences, along with similarities and shared characteristics of the Glenrothes distilling style, which is famously laden with ripe fruits, juicy citrus, creamy vanilla and hints of exotic spice This duo of Glenrothes casks together form The Last Drop Distiller’s first Glenrothes Single Malt release.
Two more releases from 1969 and 1970 – each comprising slightly different single casks – will follow in 2019 and 2020 respectively, thereby completing a unique Glenrothes trilogy of wonderful whiskies.
With only 309 bottles available in total (Cask No 13504 has yielded 168 bottles + miniatures, and Cask No 13508 has yielded 141 sets), the demand is likely to exceed supply.
