50 Year Old Whisky

Fifty (50) Year Old Whisky is rather like the holy grail in whisky terms. So few Casks of whisky will reach 50 years old and still be drinkable as to be a tiny, tiny fraction of a percent. Several 50 year old whiskies retail for in excess of £5,000, and finding one for less than £1000 these days is somewhat of a rarity! 50 year old whisky casks will generally have lost between 60 and 80% to the angels’ share.

50 year old whisky is truly unsurpassed as a gift for a 50th Birthday - make someone’s (half) century, and give them a bottle. Why not give a bottle of 50 year old whisky as a fathers day gift, or a Christmas present?

Fifty Year Old whisky is such a rarity, that only a few very fortunate people will ever sample its astonishing complexity.

1961 seems like a long time ago, here are a few reminders of some of the events from that year:

1961 was the last upside-down year; one whose numerals look the same when flipped vertically. The last once prior was 1881, and the next one will be in 6009, when we might not even have such a thing as whisky.

In February 1961, China could have made whisky with the grain they bought from Canada for $60 million!

In April 1961, Yuri Gagarin became the first human in space. He was from Russia, where they famously prefer vodka to whisky.
