No current value metric type

When I create a new panel or even use the explore page in Grafana using a ElasticSearch data source, there are a number of metric types that I can choose from when entering my query e.g. sum, count, average etc

What I am looking for rather is current value. I have seen this option in other charting applications like Kibana Canvas. Is there a way to do this in Grafana?

Reason being I want to display the current value of a field for say the last x logged documents and then plot them on a graph to show a term structure of these values
