Hello and welcome to our 66th Auction. This month's auction is bursting at the seems with a dazzling array of drams from across the world and back through time as well.

Big Peatrie's vLog once again gives us all a preview of the beautiful bottles here.

Starting us off this month is the distillery that launched the single malt revolution, Glenfiddich. In particular we have a wonderful 1939 50 year old. One of the world's most sought-after whiskies, this outstanding bottle leads a parade of older vintages including ones from 1964, 1968, 1976 - the Concorde Exclusive, and two from 1978, here & here.

 

Glenfiddich's sister distillery Balvenie offers us a wonderful 1967 40 year old single cask that was bottled exclusively for Heathrow's Terminal 5 and is one of only 109 bottles.

Karuizawa makes a sizeable contribution to the top table this month with several cracking bottles. First up is 45 year old which is rumoured to have been the last of the 1967 casks left when it was bottled in 2012. There is also a wonderful but delicate Karuizawa from 1965. This 21 year old was bottled by Mercian for its Ocean brand. We also have a bottle of the Uniting Nations 40 year old Essence of Karuizawa, a wonderful blend of 45 year old Karuizawa and 40 year old single malt from an unnamed Scottish distillery.

 

Blended whisky offers us more wonderful examples this month and in a league of its own stands the Directors Blends from Johnnie Walker. This complete collection of rare and wonderful whiskies represents the pinnacle of the blender's art. There is also a bounty of blended beauties in the shape of a Black & White from 1928, a rare old Vat 99, a Sandy MacDonald Spring Cap, a Bulloch, Lade & Co. Gold Label, a Thomson's Deer-Stalker and an Antiquary 1977.

Next up is a wonderful old Glendronach which hails from the 1930s and proclaims itself as, "Most suitable for medicinal purposes". Also from the 1930s is a wonderful Linkwood 1939 bottled by Gordon & Macphail. Gordon & Macphail once again brings us some venerable Mortlachs, two that are 50 years old, one is from 1938 and the other is a mini distilled in 1936. This auction also sees a 20cl bottle of Gordon & Macphail's 70 year old.

Dalmore shines brightly again this month with Constellation 19 year old, a 10cl sample of its magnificent 50 year old and an 40 year old Astrum. Bowmore brings us one of its legendary bottlings in a bottle of its Black distilled in 1964 and bottled at 42 year old. We also have 30 year old bottled from a hogshead filled on the day of the Queen's visit in 1980.

There are many magnificent Macallans in this month. This long list starts with a 1946 52 Year old, we then have a 1949 40 year old from Signatory, a series of Sixties distillations; 1962, 1963, 1964, 1966 and a lovely little Fine & Rare mini from 1972. Springbank, Strathisla, Ord, Glen Moray, Longmorn and Laphroaig all bring us some wonderful examples of whisky distilled in the 1960s.

There is a wonderful Van Winkle Hand Made 16 year old, a Yamazaki 1993 which was bottled for Maison du Whisky, a Midleton 1984 Very Old and a Richard Hennessy cognac which contains spirit that is nearly 200 years old!

There are, as always, plenty of delicious drinking drams and many more exciting whiskies from all over the globe in this month's auction so please take time to get in and have a look around. And remember, Don't Lose Your Bottle!

All the best from us here at SWA HQ!
