The Macallan 1946 editions both returned healthy and consistent results while the Black Bowmore 1st edition was up against recent results for this bottling. Even with a slightly lower fill level this bottle can still command a hammer price of £5500 – another signifier of just how highly regarded this great whisky actually is.
The obvious highlights are the two Macallan 1946 52 year olds, the Black Bowmore 1st Edition, the SMWS 26 Malts set, the Macallan 1938, Macallan 1950 and the Auchentoshan 1957 50 year old.
Our latest auction featured some particularly impressive prices for old and rare bottlings showing the increasing demand for these kinds of bottles. One of the most striking was the Brora 1972 22 year old Rare Malts, a bottling which seems to be setting a new record event time it comes to auction. It finished up at a whopping £4400, that’s way over and above its previous best of £3200 in our auction last year.
