26 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.

26 year old whiskies

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Scotch Malt Whisky Society 7.51 Longmorn Sweet, Rich & Fruity 1984 26 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 57.40%
8 Balanced and fine. Worth a look.

Berry's Own Selection Caol Ila 26 Years Old, 1984
Single Malt - Scotland - 53.70%
8 I prefer this neat, but whatever your preference, this is an exceptional Caol Ila.

Cadenhead's Convalmore-Glenlivet 26 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 61.40%
7 A welcome opportunity to taste a rare whisky, though it was never a classic, and in this instance is over the hill (or the Conval Hills?).

Cadenhead's Glenglassaugh 26 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 51.10%
7 This has dried out to a point where it is aggressive and unbalanced.

Chieftain's Choice Dallas Dhu 26 Years Old Rum Finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 48.50%
7 I wonder what type of rum casks were used. I cannot find any hint to a finish here. Don't look for delicacy but fine if you look for a wake up call.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Dewar Rattray Balmenach 26 Years Old 1983
Single Malt - Scotland - 48.20%
4 A complex and vibrant whisky. Like walking in an orchard on a crisp morning. A dram to clear your mind on a dull morning.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Dimensions Dimension Glenburgie 1985 26 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 55.20%
8 An enticing nose and lively palate. I prefer it neat than diluted as I think water cuts too many edges... Try it to your taste!

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Douglas Laing Caol Ila 1979 26 Years Old, The Whisky Fair
Single Malt - Scotland - 57.20%
8 Should have been taken out of the cask a few years back. Easy to say now of course.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Duncan Taylor Inverleven 26 Years Old, Cask 1873
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.10%
8 An interesting character. Much sweeter on the palate than expected from the nose. Water brings out an unpleasant cardboardy touch.

Glen Garioch (A Rare Find) 1986 26 Years Old Cask 1807
Single Malt - Scotland - 52.40%
7 A very refreshing dram especially with a dash of water. Not a great deal of complexity but a good structure to it.

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Glenfarclas The Family Casks 1985 Release X
Single Malt - Scotland - 44.90%
8 A sherry second fill cask? Superb, rewarding, well balanced, complex. Bring the best chocolate!

Glenglassaugh 26 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 Has a certain louche charm to it.

Linkwood 26 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 56.90%
7 Some sort of a finish? It overwhelms the distillery character. Too bad, because the core is good.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Linkwood 26 Years Old, Rum Cask
Single Malt - Scotland - 54.50%
7 A bourbon cask maturation followed by a rum finish ? Take your time to enjoy this sunny dram. Really subtle.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Linkwood 26 Years Old. Wine Cask
Single Malt - Scotland - 55.50%
8 Oak is leading the way but in an elegant way. A very spicy dram. To be matched with a beef stroganoff maybe.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Rare Malts Glendullan 1978 26 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 56.50%
8 In the crush bar at the opera?

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Wemyss Malts Single Cask Release Lemon Cheesecake
Single Grain - Scotland - 46.00%
8 Tender hearted and loveable. Delicious.

Wemyss Vintage Malts Autumn Berries 1986 26 Years Old
Blended Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 Deceptive. The nose is fresh and fragrant. But the palate does not deliver much and the finish is so short.
