The Last Drop 1960 Blended Whisky
This is for the whisky enthusiast you really love. The Last Drop combines 82 whiskies—70 malt and 12 grains, the youngest of which was 1960, the oldest going back to 1945—averaging at least 55 years old.  It’s bottled at cask strength—104-proof—no dilution, no chilling, no filtration. There are only 1,347 bottles in the world, and by next year there will be no more, so it’s definitely a collector’s item.
Suggested Retail $2,000, infiniumspirits.com
