The January auction may well be remembered for the collection of over 100 different expressions of Lagavulin from the cellar of a single collector, but it was Ardbeg, Macallan, Japanese whisky and an ancient bottle of Moutai, China’s national spirit, that were the top lots.
Watch out for increasing prices across the rum and Cognac categories as buyers continue to diversify their collections.
