5 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.

5 year old whiskies

Cadenhead's Bourbon 5 Years Old
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 63.00%
6 Just too woody for me, though a good splash of water brings out the other flavours.

Glen Grant 5 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 Hadn't tasted the 5 Years Old for a while. Cleaner, drier and less fruity than I remember.

Kavalan 5 Years Old, Solist Fino
Single Malt - Taiwan - 58.30%
7 Bitter all the way. No balance. One dimensional. To try only if you are a ‘woodfreak'. Surprisingly, water tones the bitterness down.

Master of Malt Aultmore 5 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 66.80%
7 At this strength, one wonders what it's trying to prove.

Three Ships 5 Years Old
Blended - South Africa - 43.00%
7 A decent dram, a little heavy on the palate though. You need to like oaky aftertaste to fully appreciate it.

Wemyss Vintage Malts Peat Chimney 5 Years Old
Blended Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 If it's a chimney it's one above a sweet shop.

Wemyss Vintage Malts Smooth Gentleman
Blended Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
7 It was all going so well...

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Wemyss Vintage Malts Smooth Gentleman 5 Years Old

8 Maybe just a little too eager to please, but maybe I'm just too hard to please.

Wemyss Vintage Malts Spice King
Blended Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
8 Best neat.

Wemyss Vintage Malts Spice King 5 Years Old
Blended Malt - Scotland - 40.00%

Wemyss Vintage Malts The Spice King 5 Years Old
