Global Whisky Auctions - Hammer Time September 2018

Global Whisky Auctions

Thank you to everyone who bid in our September 2018 auction, and congratulations to those lucky enough to win – bottles are already making their way across the world to their new homes. There were some spectacular prices achieved and really encouraging signs of growth for certain brands.

Our headline sale was a record-breaking hammer price for the Karuizawa Golden Geisha 33 Year Old Single Cask #3579, which achieved £8,650 – an increase of nearly £1,000 on the previous highest sale. One of only 129 bottles, this is one release that will surely continue to escalate in value.

The Compass Box Maltstock Breakfast Whisky 2010 was our rarest and probably most unusual lot this month. One of only 41 bottles created for the 2010 Maltstock Festival in the Netherlands, Breakfast achieved a stunning sale of £2,550. This was one of string of strong results achieved by Compass Box lots, including £870 for the ‘Double Single’ Craigellachie Hotel, £860 for the Magic Cask and £860 for Morpheus.

The ever reliable Macallan was available in the September auction in both official and independent bottlings, with the exquisite 1962 Rinaldi Import earning a final price of £1,750. Clynelish continues to perform well, with a 1972 Malts of Scotland release achieving £755 and 1976 Murray McDavid Mission finishing on £720.

Independently bottled highlights included the intriguing Islay Trilogy 1969 Murray McDavid achieving £515, while a 70’s Cadenhead’s bottling of the increasingly scarce Convalmore-Glenlivet reached a hammer price of £500.
