October 2017 Auction Results

Dalmore 1926 50 Year Old Bottled 1970s

A ceramic decanter of Dalmore 50 year old distilled in December 1926 and bottled at cask strength in the 1970s.

Very similar in character to the Dalmore 50 year old in the crystal decanter (from the same batch), this is an earlier presentation and is packaged in a smart black ceramic decanter.

Please note that there is no strength stated. This is rumoured to have an ABV of 52%.

Winning bid £15,500

Remy Martin Louis XIII Black Pearl Bacarrat Crystal Decanter

A bottle of Rémy Martin Louis XIII Black Pearl.

Rémy Martin Black Pearl was drawn from a single 100 year old tiercon (blending cask) that contained small quantities of 1200 different eaux-de-vie (some of which were over 100 years old).

This is decanter number 600 of 786.

Winning bid £11,200

Hanyu 1985 Ichiro’s Malt Ace Of Spades Card Series – Cask #9308

A bottle of Hanyu 1985 from the Card Series. The Ace of Spades was first matured in a hogshead before finishing in a Spanish oak sherry butt and bottling in 2006.

This was a pre-release trade sample, and therefore is not numbered.

Winning bid £9,400

Chartreuse Green Bottled 1878 – 1903

A very old bottle of Chartreuse Green liqueur. We estimate this was bottled between 1878 and 1903, before the Chartreuse distillery was nationalised and the Carthusian order of monks were expelled from France.

Winning bid £6,500

A bottle of Glenury Royal 50 Year Old. This was distilled in 1953 and matured in sherry casks before bottling. This is presented in an elegant oval bottle with a cork stopper.

This is bottle number 212 of 498.

Glenury Royal was founded in 1825 near Stonehaven, Aberdeenshire in the Eastern Highlands by Captain Robert Barclay, a colourful character who once walked 1000 miles in 1000 hours to win a bet. Glenury fell silent in 1983 and was closed 1985.
