Welcome one and all to our now live 147th auction! We have a plethora of amazing drams in our auction this month, over 7000 bottles in total and some particularly special expressions amongst them. Building a watchlist with this many potential purchases available is always hard, so to ease your burden we have picked out some interesting bottles to get you started.

Our first highlight contains not one, not two, but three absolutely fantastic bottles in one stupendous lot, the Bowmore Black 1964 – 1st, 2nd and 3rd Editions. These tremendous drams have achieved almost mythical status within the world of whisky, and with good reason. All drawn from Oloroso Sherry casks and hovering around 50% ABV these famously dark and luxuriant tipples are something to behold and the chance to purchase the first 3 editions all in one go doesn’t present itself too often.

Next we have a bottle of supreme quality, a Macallan 52 Year Old 2018 Release. As with most Macallan releases this whisky has been aged solely in sherry oak, but what stands it apart is the incredible 52 years it has spent ageing. Hand-signed by Macallan Whisky Maker Sarah Burgess this is one of only 250 bottles produced so you can expect to have a fight on your hands if you want to add this one to your collection this month.

Springbank has been growing in popularity on the secondary market for a while now with their prices creeping up and up but there are still some great independent bottlings out there which can be had for (slightly) more reasonable prices. This is one such bottle the Springbank 1996 26 Year Old Whisky Sponge. Bottled by Decadent Drinks in collaboration with the irrepressibly sarcastic Whisky Sponge blog, this is an interesting bottle to look at with old style glassware and excellent label art. Not to mention the well-aged first fill sherry Springbank contained within.

The last highlight this month comes from the land of the rising sun, a Karuizawa 1965 50 Year Old Single Cask #3037 50cl from Elixir Distillers. One of the older bottlings of Karuizawa in existence this beautifully understated expression has spent an outrageous five whole decades being aged in sherry oak before finally being released in 2022. Despite the long ageing process this has managed to retain an impressively high ABV of 58.3% and is one of only 318 bottles released.

Some really excellent bottles here for sure, but this is just the tip of the iceberg. We have a terrific range of drams this month with something to suit everyone, so now is the time to dive in and start picking out your own personal favourites and building your watchlist. Best of luck to everyone in the auction, and as always………..don’t lose your bottle
