Macallan takes the day at the McTear's Whisky Auction The Rare & Collectable Whisky Auction this November at McTear's reaffirmed that whisky remains a strong and invigorating investment. The auction, held November 18th at 10:30am, saw fantastic hammer prices from a variety of distilleries.

The star of the show was undoubtedly the Macallan 50 Year Old Anniversary Malt, lot 1154. This highland whisky, bottled in 1928, fulfilled its estimate and sold for a whopping £20,000 hammer. Other bottles from this prestigious distillery also sold well; lot 1000, a Macallan 1969, sold for £5000, and lot 1075, a 25 Year Old Anniversary Malt sold for £800. Not to be outdone, lot 1079, the Easter Elchies Special Reserve, just edged it out with a hammer of £820.
Scotland’s other whisky producing regions also had their moments. From the whisky paradise of Islay, lot 1022, a 15 year old Caol Ila, sold for £1200, and the peaty Ardbeg 1975, lot 1208, made £800. The fruitful Speyside region left its mark with lot 1081, a 1966 Glenrothes, selling for £1100, and lot 1175, a 1936 Glen Grant, making an astonishing £900!

Finally, no whisky sale would be complete without a visit from the Irish delegation, and lot 1071, a Coleraine 34 year old, proved up to the task, earning a £850 hammer.
