37 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.

37 year old whiskies

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Balblair 1975 Vintage 2nd Release 37 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 A beautiful example of a well-matured Bourbon cask whisky. Still lively and dashing. The perfect “herbal tea”.

Berry's Own Selection Glen Grant, 37 Years Old, 1972
Single Malt - Scotland - 51.80%
8 A dry character. Quite strictly framed by oak but releasing an interesting and complex spicy character.

Duncan Taylor Strathisla 37 Years Old, Cask 1332
Single Malt - Scotland - 47.60%
7 More complexity on the nose than on the palate. A pleasant whisky though. But quite disappointing for a Strathisla of that age.

Glenfarclas The Family Casks 1975 37 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 54.70%
7 The nose promised a sweeter palate which remains a bit behind. Not unpleasant but slightly disappointing.

Glengoyne 37 Years Old, Sherry Butt
Single Malt - Scotland - 47.60%
8 Sweet, filling, rich and satisfying. An impressive afterdinner drop.

Scotch Malt Whisky Society Old Fettercairn, 37 Years Old, 94.3
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.10%
8 An elegant, elderly chatelaine.

Strathclyde 37 Years Old
Single Grain - Scotland - 54.40%
7 It's in the twilight of its autumn, but has subtle complexity and less of the overt sweetness that old grains usually exhibit.

The Famous Grouse Blended Malt 37 Years Old
Blended Malt - Scotland - 47.60%
8 If this is John Ramsay's last blend then what a way to go. Masterly. The slow ever-changing multifaceted style is blending at its very best.

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

The Macallan 1937, 37 Years Old, Vintage
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
8 With a colour close to that of today's product and a bright clarity, this visually recalled some of the yet-older Macallans that have inspired replica editions.

The Macallan 1964, 37 Years Old, Vintage
Single Malt - Scotland - 58.60%
7 Interesting in its own right. Hard to envisage as a Macallan, especially with its pale, greeny-gold colour.
