30 Year Old Whisky

Thirty (30) Year Old Whisky is really quite rare in the world of whisky. Thirty years is a long time for any spirit to mature, and the rate of evaporation (also known as the Angels’ Share) of roughly 2% per annum means that after 30 years, only 55% (approximately) of the original barrel will be left!

30 year old whisky is a traditional gift for a particularly 30th Birthday Present for a special man or lady, or perhaps a Christmas present. Also particularly popular for Fathers day.

Thirty Year old whiskies are usually not only complex and interesting, but also very smooth due to the extended aging process.

In 1981, many noteworthy events hit the headlines:

Whisky lover and eyebrow raiser Sir Roger Moore starred in the excellent For Your Eyes Only which was one of the top grossing films of 1986 (it was released in 1981).

The first ever London Marathon was run in March of 1981, and there were 7,500 runners, the majority of whom did not drink single malt whisky or bourbon during the event.

In September 1981, the eminent US journalist Walter Cronkite retired. The whiskey drinking Xzibit once declared “I stand behind the mic like Walter Cronkite.”
