As we experience a rather bizarre yet very much welcomed Indian summer here in Glasgow, we are buzzing to present to you our 123rd Auction! Sun cream lathered, shorts & t-shirts back out from storage and some sunset drams in mind. This chunky auction boasts thousands of malty wonders to wet your whistle!

First off we’d like to introduce a unique and curious cognac from ….. John Walker & Sons ??

Yes, we too were baffled by this rare old gem when she graced us with her presence in the SWA Headquarters. This snow leopard of a spirit rarely shows herself in public. At 70° Proof, distilled in France with a rich, dark colour you can feel the history oozing from this collectors dream!

Historical drammy delights are plentiful this month as we have another hide and seek champion from the dark depths of the SMWS Vaults. The SMWS 15.3 Glenfiddich 1978 is an old style, dark delight bottled in September 1991 after spending many years sleeping in the famous Leith Warehouse. This old-timer comes from the early days of SMWS and will make a best friend to any whisky lover.

As well as these regal gems we have a beautiful selection of exclusive cask strength delights from the “Manager’s Dram” range! These bobby dazzlers were never available to the public and were hand selected by distillery managers as the best single malts of the era. These special drams vary in age, strength and cask type. If you're lucky enough to get your hands on one of these beauties it will be something to truly savour!

Lastly, we are moving away from the old bottlings to a new take on a whisky that is half a century old, The Craigellachie 1970 G&M Private collection. This heavyweight has been maturing in a 1st Fill American Hogshead for 50 years. Darker than a winter's night in Glasgow and one of only 13 bottles released, very few have the privilege of owning one of these rarities.

So get digging folks, there's plenty of treats and surprises to be had. Let's hope the good weather lasts and we shall toast to good times ahead!

Have a belter and don’t lose your bottle!
