50 Year Old Whisky

50-year-old whisky is almost the holy grail in spirits terms. Very few casks of whisky will reach 50 years old and still be drinkable, representing 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 £1,000 these days is somewhat of a rarity! 50-year-old whisky casks will generally have lost 60-80% of their liquid to the angels’ share.

50 year old whiskey is truly unsurpassed as a gift for a 50th birthday, Father's Day, or a Christmas present. But obviously only for deserving sorts; these are spectacularly rare whiskies. Make sure the recipient shares with you!
