Have you got the bottle for the McTear's Rare & Collectable Whisky Auction? This month we continue our exploration of the history of the Scotch Malt Whisky Society with an auction which features over 50 examples of first cask expressions, some dating back to the earliest days of the Society. The selection of lots from 1200 – 1263 offers a magnificent opportunity for collectors to discover or revisit unique malt whiskies which may never be seen again at auction in such quantity and variety.

Springbank Distillery is strongly represented in the catalogue, with Lot 1100, a single sherry cask 20 year old and Lot 1000 a 25 year old standing out, along with a case of six 30 year old Milroy Selection (Lot 1350) dominating the Campbeltown horizon.

As ever Macallan is well represented, with 1938 (Lot 1132) and 1950 (Lot 1191) vintages taking pride of place and a wide selection of bottles from the Ardbeg portfolio makes a welcome return.

Our bumper day continues after the Whisky auction with another offering of what we may term ‘All That Is Not Uisgea Beatha’. The Wine, Port & Eau De Vie event features wine vintages old and new.

Foremost amongst the wine selection are Lot 1378, a magnum of 1968 Chateau Latour and Lot 1397, a 1999 Penfold’s Grange. Port is present from the 1990’s back to the 1940s, several fine Portuguese wine styles are featured, and a truly eclectic and a very high quality showing of Cognac and Armagnac from the most revered houses ensures that this event should be on the radar of any discerning oenologist.
