The so-called whiskey tears or “edges” actually have nothing to do with the age

The length of tears that whiskey can form in a glass has nothing to do with its age. Some friends who are new to whiskey have inferred that some whiskeys are older because they have long tears. This statement is incorrect. Instead, the concentration of chemicals (especially oils) contained in the wine will affect the length of the tear stains. In addition, the concentration of alcohol is also part of the reason, but it is definitely not directly related to the year.
