Top hammer price for Macallan!

Top hammer price for Macallan! The Rare & Collectable Whisky Auction, the last of 2015, promised big things and it did not disappoint! The front runners, as expected, were the Macallan 30 year old (lot 1300) that reached a whopping £1,800 hammer. That was matched by the Rare Malts Brora 22 year old (lot 1384) that exceeded its estimate to match the Macallan’s hammer price. Over the course of 2015, the Whisky Department have seen a steady rise in the prices commanded by these big names and we are hopeful of a continuation of the trend through 2016.

The Cadenhead’s Lagavulin, 1978 (lot 1388) was one of the surprise lots in the sale. Estimated at a respectable £300-400, the lot achieved an excellent £650. The Ledaig 1972 was another bottle that caught the attention of the bidders and reached a great hammer price of £440.

The Whisky Department wish all clients a very happy festive period and all the prosperity and good fortune for the New Year.

To consign to The Rare & Collectable Whisky Auction, taking place January 13th, please email auction@mctears.co.uk or telephone 0141 810 2880.
