Cask Type / Finish

Easter greetings from all of us here at SWA! While we can’t promise you’ll find any easter eggs in our basket, we can certainly promise a stunning variety of malts to snatch up and enjoy.This is another monster auction with an abundance of rare treats and hidden gems, so get hunting and see if you can’t find something truly remarkable to start spring with a splash!

To start with we’d like to take you up to Speyside. After maturing in the gloom of Warehouse 8 for five decades, a Glenfiddich 50 Year Old has made its way into the auction this month. When the Grant family refers to a malt as an heirloom you know it has to be something truly special! Married from two casks and matured in American oak barrels for 6 months before bottling, every detail of this old boy represents the pinnacle of whisky craftsmanship. With a hand blown bottle and black leather stitched box, this could be the crowning glory of any collection.

Also hailing from the Speyside region, we have a mighty Macallan malt fighting for the spotlight this auction. The Macallan 1951 Fine & Rare is a cask strength sherry monster that has been vatted with just two sherry butts, and we here at SWA HQ happen to think it looks particularly delicious.

We here at SWA like to think of ourselves as progressives and believe whisky should be enjoyed by everyone (over 18 years old of course!). With that in mind, this month we would like to highlight a rare bottle of Balvenie 6 Year Old, who’s target audience is the half of the population that most whisky collectors have never even spoken to, let alone anything else (We jest of course, you dapper bunch of lotharios you. xx ). That’s right, it was created ‘’Specially for Ladies’’!

Hopping over to Islay, we have in our easter basket a Bowmore 1955! Bottled for the opening of the Bowmore Visitors Center in September 1974 and given to staff at the time, most of these decanters would have been swigged on the day. Don’t be fooled by its modest ceramic appearance; the liquid inside has been described as having explosive pineapple, guava and passion fruits on the nose! Don’t miss your chance to enjoy the remarkable palate of this fruit bomb.

For those seeking latest releases, we have a few exceptional bottles to get excited about! No need to be part of our inner circle to bag one of the limited edition Highland Park Yesnabys. This phonetically puzzling fellow has been named after the cliffs on Orkney's extreme Atlantic coastline, and its first-filled sherried casks have been maturing in Highland Park’s most Northerly warehouses, where the howling winds and horrible weather give this spirit its delightfully evocative flavour.

If you fancy snapping up some cask explorations, feast your eyes on our fantastic range of Port Charlotte Valinch’s from Bruichladdich!

This month we have the full range to choose from so go get tucked in. Anyway, enough rambling from us! Go fourth, get bidding and remember...

Don’t lose your bottle!
