Whisky Ageism: Gunning for Grandad’s Stash of Oldies

Hear ye, hear ye: the latest Whisky Round Table is live over with Mike and the gang at WhiskyParty!

Mike’s question this month was a fairly sobering one, I thought, though: a bit of a party pooper. As we get older, scientists would have us believe that our sensory skills diminish. Our whiskies cease to register in the stratospheres of flavour they once did, and it would appear that insult is set to follow injury. Soon there will be no running for the bus or a night undisturbed by trips to the bathroom, just years of falling asleep in front of Bridge Over the River Kwai and less than sparkling drams.

Ought we, therefore, to reconsider allowing the rarest or most complex whiskies to make it into the wrinkled hands of our OAPs who cannot hope to appreciate them? With tongue in cheek, the Whisky Round Tablers set to composing their answers. I urge you to have a read here.
