28 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.

28 year old whiskies

Brechin 28 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 53.30%
7 A warm character, just a little too assertive when it comes to oak but so uplifting.

Convalmore 28 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 57.90%
7 Interesting, not very well balanced but enjoyable on a cold frosty morning (or after having vacuum cleaned !).

Cooper's Choice Glen Albyn 1974, 28 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 Fuller in flavours, and sweeter, than I remember Glen Albyn.

Cù Bòcan 1988 Vintage Edition
Single Malt - Scotland - 51.50%
8 Now, that's a chunky, coffeed malt. Who needs a breakfast coffee when you can have this?

Dun Bheagan Convalmore 1975 28 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 Ascetic. Complex. Cosmopolitan.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Duncan Taylor Octave Caol Ila 1983 28 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 51.70%
8 A bit of an old sea beast!

Kingsbury Glencadam 1971, 28 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 55.60%
7 Lacks roundness, structure, balance. I was sorry to hear that this distillery has been closed. Temporarily?

World Whiskies Awards 2013 - World's Best Blended Malt Whisky - Winner

Mars Maltage 3 Plus 25, 28 Years Old
Blended Malt - Japan - 46.00%

Master of Malt Tormore Single Cask Series
Single Malt - Scotland - 60.20%
7 Interesting whisky but the high ABV requires some precautions. Time, a dash of water and you have an energetic and talkative dram!

Old & Rare Caol Ila 28 Years Old 1979
Single Malt - Scotland - 54.60%
7 Good but pretty tired.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Old & Rare Platinum The Macallan, 28 Years Old

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Old Malt Cask Ardbeg 28 Years Old, The Ardbeggeddon 1972, Sherry Cask
Single Malt - Scotland - 48.40%
8 One of the best Ardbegs I have ever tasted. Full range of the distillery's typical flavours, lyrically combined.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Port Ellen
Single Malt - Scotland - 53.80%
8 A classic Port Ellen. A must-buy for peat heads.

Rare Malts Auchroisk 28 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 56.80%
7 Carries its age effortlessly. Approachable, clean, sweet-tempered. Unlike The Singleton version, no obvious sherry.

Rare Malts Glen Mhor 1976 28 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 51.90%
7 A straight-ahead, fruity, creamy, Speysider.

Rare Malts Glenury Royal 28 Years Old

7 Marked down slightly for an undistinguished nose.

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Talisker 28 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.30%
8 More medicinal than other versions. If matched with oysters, add barbecued sausages as the French do in Marennes-Oléron.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

The Glenturret 28 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.50%
9 Its maturity is obvious from the onset, the citrus notes give it a lovely vibrancy.
