9 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.

9 year old whiskies

A. D. Rattray Whisky Experience 2002 9 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 The palate is more appealing than the nose. A pleasant dram, leaving a fresh feeling. Better neat than diluted.

Adelphi Rosebank 1992, 9 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 61.00%
8 The aroma promised much, but the palate is curiously drying. Rosebank was never peaty, and this is too young to be woody, so I don't know the origin of that harshness.

Adelphi Shannon Grain 1991, 9 Years Old, Cask 10839
Single Grain - Ireland - 67.30%
6 For a grain whiskey, it has plenty of flavours, but they do not hang together very well.

Cadenhead's Allt-a-Bhainne 1992, 9 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 59.40%
7 A rare opportunity to serve this summery whisky.

Cadenhead's Caol Ila 9 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
7 Youthfully powerful. Almost raw flavours, without being in any way spirity. Many Islay-lovers enjoy their whiskies young. This is a robust example.

Cadenhead's Rosebank 1989, 9 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
8 All of the characteristic floweriness of Rosebank, but with some roundness.

Cask Collection Bowmore 1998 9 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 62.30%
6 A solid dram. Rough and ready. The malty sweetness helps balancing the high strength. Invigorating.

Evan Williams 1989 (Bottled 1998)
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 43.30%
Light and restrained,but balanced.

Evan Williams 1990 (Bottled 1999)
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 43.30%
Improved with water. Restrained again with an edgier character than the 89.

Evan Williams 1991 (Bottled 2000)
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 43.30%
Fuller,but well balanced.

Evan Williams 1992 (Bottled 2001)
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 43.30%
Solidly built and huge. A different style.

Evan Williams 1993 (Bottled 2002)
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 43.30%
More classic Evan Williams character.

Evan Williams 1994 (Bottled 2003)
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 43.30%
Has the signature mix of honey,citrus, grip and precision.

Evan Williams 1995 (Bottled 2005)
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 43.30%
In a similar vein to 89 and 94.

Evan Williams 1996 (Bottled 2005)
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 43.30%
Big and bold.

Evan Williams 1997 (Bottled 2006)
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 43.30%
More ordered after the '96. Perfumed.

Evan Williams 1998 (Bottled 2007)
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 43.30%
The bigger fatter ones like this and the ‘92 are slightly less expressive.

Evan Williams 1999 (Bottled 2008)
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 43.30%
We're back to where we started.

8 Easily drinkable, appetising.

Knob Creek 9 Years Old
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 50.00%

Knob Creek Single Barrel 9 Years Old
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 60.00%
8 Interesting how a few years ago an 8yo bourbon would have been considered old, yet here you can still pick put ‘youthful' vibrancy.

Old Pogue 9 Years Old, Master's Select
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 45.50%
7 The body is well rounded, but the flavours less so.

Scotch Malt Whisky Society 9 Years Old, Millennium Malt
Single Malt - Scotland - 58.10%
9 Frighteningly good. Godzilla is alive and well and living in Campbeltown.

Springbank Marsala, 9 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 58.00%
8 These strange combinations make me think of an unconventionally beautiful model like Erin O'Connor.
