JUST WHISKY “Vintage Macallans headline exceptional July 2019 Auction” – Scotch Whisky News


Vintage Macallans headline exceptional July Auction

Auction Ends Sunday 21st @ 8pm!

The Macallan 72 Years Old headlines an extraordinary July auction of rare and valuable bottles at Just Whisky Auctions, with over 175 lots from Macallan alone spanning decades of releases by the world’s most renowned distillery. A plethora of 2018 releases including the 52 Years Old and 50 Years Old are joined by an exceptional array of vintage releases. From oddities like ‘The New Range Rover’ to old-style releases like the cask-strength collection, through to legendary bottlings like the 1949 Millenium Edition and 1948 Select Reserve, rarely have so many Unicorn Macallans been auctioned at once.


Macallan 72 Years Old – Lot 680861

Macallan’s oldest ever whisky was released in 2018 to great fanfare and rightly so, with every drop miraculously surviving a lifetime in cask. Launched as a Genesis Decanter to celebrate the opening of the new distillery, the 72 Years Old is a meeting of the respected past and bold future of Macallan – incredibly mature spirit, housed in an elegant bottle created by Lalique to mirror the new Macallan’s strikingly futuristic design.


Macallan 1949 Millenium Edition – Lot 680988

Launched to celebrate the coming of the Millenium (remember that?), this now legendary bottle comes complete with a key to keep it locked in its beautiful hard-wood display case. Ironically, behind a lock and key is where the Millenium normally stays hidden, with few making it to auction. Distilled 14th January 1949, this is Macallan of the old-school – great aged whisky presented with a sense of refinement.


Macallan 1948 Select Reserve – Lot 681001

This exquisitely presented Macallan is one of just 366 bottles, each given an individual day of the year for 1948 (a leap year) to act as a unique identifier, with no two bottles the same. Unusually for Macallan, the 1948 Select Reserve is heavily peated and smoky due to the post-war rationing of coal in Britain forcing the distillery to malt with a higher amount of peat than it otherwise would. Bottled in 1999 after 51 years of maturation exclusively in Sherry casks, the 1948 is a time-capsule showcasing a style of Macallan that will never be made again.

These and 1,100 other lots are all open for bidding until Sunday at 8pm UK time

  2. In the last sale we had a great cask of Springbank 1999 from a First Fill Sherry Cask, this time it is a Springbank 1999 from a First Fill Bourbon Cask, it is a cask full of golden deliciousness!
  3. If you like it peaty we have a Bowmore beast for you from 1995 in a refill Butt.  With size comes volume and this cask is sitting with a great Regauge litres of alcohol of 152.9 Litres at 55.6% abv.  A truly delicious, smoky chewy treat!
