23 Years Old Whisky

Whiskies listed by their age.

Browse our whisky database by the age of the whisky. The 'age' of a whisky is the time it spent in the 'cask' before being bottled. The longer a whisky remains in the cask, the more flavour it will acquire and the less spirit will remain.

The age of a whisk(e)y is determined by the length of time it has spent in the cask before being bottled. Once the whisk(e)y has been bottled the aging process stops. A whisk(e)y bottled at 10 years old will always be a 10 year old whisk(e)y even in a hundred years. By then the vintage of the whisk(e)y would still make it a rare and valuable item.

When dealing especially with blends, but also with single malts, some of the whiskies may be older than the stated age. However none of the whiskies will be younger.

23 year old whiskies

Abbey Whisky Bunnahabhain
Single Malt - Scotland - 44.00%
8 Shy at first but revealing pleasant fruity flavours.

Benrinnes 23 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 58.80%
7 You have got to like woody whiskies to drink this one. Has gone over the top for me. Certainly an old whisky but too long a maturation made it grumpy. Water kills it.

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Cadenhead's Dallas Dhu 23 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 60.80%
8 I think I have discovered a breakfast whisky. They can call it Dallas Dhu. I'll dub it "Death in the Morning. "

Caol Ila 1984 23 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 59.00%
7 Awake up dram. Fresh,vibrant,wide open on the sea horizon. Bring bacon and eggs.

Caol Ila 23 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 60.00%
8 All the oily, waxy, junipery, bush-like flavours of Caol Ila, but the whiff of the sea comes late.

Chieftain's Choice Banff 1979, Aged 23 Years
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 I thought this whisky had died in the bottle, but water brought it back to life.

Chieftain's Choice Brora 1981, 23 Years Old, Sherry Finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 Rich flavours. A chestnut-coloured whisky for people who like very grown-up sweetmeats: Marron glacé, for example. Unlikely to be enjoyed by anyone younger than the whisky.

Douglas Laing St Magadalene 23 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.00%
7 Interesting but a sweet note too far maybe but the finish gets a grip on itself and leaves a clean minty freshness. Recommended for sweet tooth.

Duncan Taylor Knockando 1980, 23 Years Old, Cask 1913
Single Malt - Scotland - 47.00%
7 Knockando is always a well-mannered whisky, although this expression seems a tad tired.

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Evan Williams 23 Years Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 53.50%
8 A lovely bourbon, but I prefer it younger.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Glencadam 1983 25 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 Elegant and complex. Highly recommended.

Hart Brothers Caol Ila 23 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
7 For its age, not at all woody, but lacking in roundness. The flavours seem to be coming apart.

Knockdhu 23 Years Old Limited Edition
Single Malt - Scotland - 57.40%
8 A classic friendly Speyside, well balanced and enjoying its maturity.

Master of Malt Bally Delicious
Single Malt - Scotland - 54.00%
7 An interesting floral character but not a wide aromatic palate.

McGibbon's Port Ellen 23 Years Old, Provenance
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 Reminded me of old Calvados. Oak tends to overwhelm fruit but a wee dash of water tones it down. Very unpeated for a Port Ellen!

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Old Malt Cask Clynelish 23 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.00%
8 All comes together at the end.

Pappy Van Winkle Family Reserve, 23 Years Old
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 47.80%
7 Big and robust but very drinkable and soothing.

Rare Malts Bladnoch 1977, 23 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 53.60%
8 Rather aggressive for a malt that is usually delicate and sweet, but still very distinctive. Will stand softening with a good splash of water.

Rare Malts Glen Ord 1974, 23 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 60.80%
8 Far paler and less sherried than the main version from this distillery. I would like at least some sherry to round the gingery spiciness, but I like the way that rose character comes through in this o...

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Rittenhouse Very Rare 23 Years Old
- U.S.A. - 50.00%
8 Fantastic balance. Highest recommendation.

Scott's Selection Macallan 1989 23 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.00%
8 A lovely dram, straightforward and lively.

Scott's Selection Tomatin 1988 23 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.60%
7 A dram which needs time to open. Good balance, some complexity and firm body.

Scott's Selection Tullibardine 1989 23 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 55.70%
7 A well balanced dram, on the oaky edge of things.

Signatory Caledonian 1976, 23 Years Old
Single Grain - Scotland - 58.50%
7 Despite their lightness, some grains can stand up to long periods in wood.

Van Winkle 23 Years Old
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 47.80%
7 Even more age to handle, but it has wistful, nostalgic charm.
