World's Oldest Whisky Bottled and Tasted
Bottles of the oldest single-malt whisky in the world were unveiled this month at a tasting hosted at Edinburgh Castle. The Scottish 70-Year-Old Mortlach from Gordon and MacPhail has been aging in a Spanish oak cask since 1938 and was described by one taster at the event as "a delicate, fresh, vital, fruity whisky, with unusual attributes of waxiness and smokiness". The limited edition whisky is available in hand-blown, tear-shaped crystal decanters with silver stoppers. There are 54 full-sized bottles and 162 smaller ones available for £10,000 and £2,000 respectively.
