4 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.

Breckenridge 4 Years Old, Bourbon 2007
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 43.00%
8 This doesn't really need more than four years.

Kavalan 4 Years Old, Solist Vinho 2008
Single Malt - Taiwan - 59.20%
7 That whisky definitely needs water to cut the edges but it brings out bitterness. The balance is missing.

Rittenhouse Bottled-in-Bond Straight Rye 4 Years Old 2005
Rye - U.S.A. - 50.00%
7 This is a clever, tricksy rye. Worth a look.

Teeling Small Batch 4 Years Old
Single Malt - Republic of Ireland - 46.00%
7 ?Not an unpleasant whisky but there is not much to explore. Water brings out more sweetness. Might shine through in cocktails really well.

The Arran Malt 4 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
7 A lovely whisky for one so young. What will it be like at two or three times this age?
