Whisky Online Auctions Tasting Notes: Macallan Cask #3480 Colour: White Wine Nose: Surprisingly, and rather thrillingly, quite fruity. There are these distinctly tropical aspects which nod towards these old Irish single malts from similar vintages. Lots of lemon, melon, ripe apple, gooseberry, banana and guava. An even mix of ripe green and tropical fruits that gives an abundance of freshness. There’s also raw malt, buttery cereals and barley water. A wonderful example of a naked and distillery character forward old Macallan. Palate: Cornflour, buttered toast and earthier, sootier qualities as well. Some hints of peppery watercress, ointment, sack cloth and lemon balm. Milk bottle sweeties, cornflakes and drier notes of crushed aspirin and menthol gum. Some dried herbs as well, bouquet garni, olive oil and a hint of angelic root. Light in texture but there’s still a firmness about it overall which is quite satisfying. Finish: Good length. Rather oily, buttery, cereal and lemony. Moving more towards a classical style Speyside.  Comments: Ready for bottling now. More textbook on the palate but the nose is really terrific. Overall an excellent Macallan that shows the distillery character up front and in a lighter profile than usual. The emphasis on fruits is extremely interesting.

Please be aware of this regulation before bidding. We can assist you in getting a UK representative if required. Whisky Online Auctions Tasting Notes: Tobermory Cask #5015 Colour: Gold Nose: A good and pleasingly textured sweetness. Notes of lemon cake, poppy seed, some beach sand and sandalwood. Fresh, clean and elegantly coastal. Develops further tertiary notes of bread, sourdough, fabric softeners and lemon barley water. The underlying maltier tones get more pronounced with time.  Palate: Many toasted cereal notes, butterscotch, cream soda and hints of grass and olive oil. Again it’s quite clean and with a kind of porridge-like stodgy texture. Some brittle, concrete and chalky notes along with some soot and mustard seed. Surprisingly powerful and still possessing some hints of sea air and beach minerals. Finish: Medium-long. Some wood ash, butter, more taught minerality and a few white floral aspects. Good.  Comments: An excellent mid-aged Tobermory. Good sweetness and texture. Lacking some of the more ‘unlikely’ characteristics this distillery could be prone to in this era. The cask has had a clear voice with these sweeter aspects, although I expect this could easily improve further over another five years of maturation.

Please be aware of this regulation before bidding. We can assist you in getting a UK representative if required. Whisky Online Auctions Tasting Notes: Tobermory Cask #39 Colour: Pale Gold Nose: A more straightforward, lemony and briny example. Lots of soot, yeasty notes, chalk, limestone, minerals and sea air. Impressively fragrant and floral, with more of these notes of linen, bath salts and fabric softener. Background hints of lemon peel, gravel and menthol cigarettes. Quite a lot of cereal qualities as well. Palate: Very taught, chiselled and pure in style. Brittle minerality, toasted cereals and seeds, some brake fluid, light medicines and more chalky notes. A more typical, perhaps ‘classical Tobermory’ example but in a good way. Perhaps more idiosyncratic and characterful than cask 5015. More lemony and yeasty notes. Lots of hay and grasses as well.  Finish: Long, ashy, mineral, brittle, flinty and slightly saline. A slightly chemical aspect as well but in a good, characterful way.  Comments: The cask here is quieter and the distillate louder. It should comfortably mature well for a further 5-10 years. It still retains a lovely freshness and fragrant quality. A very interesting and rather good example of Tobermory.

  • mortlach 1938-1999 - 60 year old - gordon & macphail - crystal decanter

    mortlach 1938-1999 - 60 year old - gordon & macphail - crystal decanter

    1 bottle Mortlach 1938 - 1999. 60 Year Old. Bottled by Gordon & MacPhail. In bespoke lockable brass and wooden presentation box accompanied by glass stopper, matching miniature and certificate. 75cl. 40%. Level high in decanter. Good condition. We’re very excited to present this extremely rare bottling of Mortlach 60 year old.  Distilled on 20th October 1938, the spirit was matured in Cask 2657 – which had previously held a high-quality sherry – by Gordon & MacPhail before being bottled in 1999 at the grand old age of 60 years old. Gordon & MacPhail have a spectacular track record with Mortlach 1938 (not to mention 1936 and 1939!).  Bottlings from the 1938 vintage have been released from the Elgin-based bottler since the early 1980s, originally under the old white label and Connoisseurs Choice brands. In 1988, the first special presentation G&M Mortlach 1938 appeared as a 50yo bottled under the iconic ‘Book of Kells’ label. Everyone knows about the incredible Mortlach 1938 70 year old Gordon & MacPhail ‘Generations’ series that was the world’s oldest whisky at the time of release in 2008, but a lot of people aren’t quite so familiar with this particular Mortlach 1938 – a sister cask to the Generations – that was released at the turn of the century. There are a few possible reasons for this. Firstly, the whisky appeared in 1999, when every distillery and bottler in Scotland was churning out Millennium special editions, and every week saw unprecedented numbers of new releases on the market. Secondly, there were just 100 of these beautiful bottles released, and speaking of the bottle, many of you will have seen the elegant crystal decanter and noticed that it’s the same as the Dalmore 50 year old we auctioned last month! The beautiful copper presentation case, meanwhile was designed and made by Forsyth’s of Rothes, the distillery coppersmiths, in the style of a windowed wash still front using only burnished copper, wood and brass, as a tribute to the craftsmanship of the coppersmiths and the coopers. The brass lock, meanwhile, ‘recalls bygone times when glass-encased spirit safes were sealed and checked daily by excisemen’. The handmade nature of the case is reflected in the visible dimple marks from the coppersmith’s hammers. The case has a special drawer containing a crystal stopper and a separate miniature bottle of the same spirit with the more familiar Book of Kells-inspired label that many people will associate with previous bottlings of Mortlach 1938 and other Gordon & MacPhail prestige bottlings from the likes of Clynelish, Strathisla and Glen Grant. The miniature itself is highly prized, and has gone for as much as £260 at previous auctions.

  • cardow 100% pot still - john walker & sons - 1960s

    cardow 100% pot still - john walker & sons - 1960s

    1 bottle Cardow 100% Pot Still . Bottled 1960s by John Walker & Sons. No box. No capacity stated. 70 proof. Level base of neck. Small tear to label, otherwise good condition. Another incredibly rare old bottle that has never seen the light of auction is a 100% Pot Still Cardow Highland Malt Scotch Whisky. Cardow is the former name of Cardhu and was used between the 1950s to approximately 1965. Cardow/dhu bottled during this period is almost impossible to find. The nearest example I can think of is a run of official 8-year-olds that first appeared in 1965 and even those turn up once in a blue moon.

  • macallan 12 year old - liqueur whisky - 100 proof - rotation 1971

    macallan 12 year old - liqueur whisky - 100 proof - rotation 1971

    1 bottle Macallan 12 Year Old. Liqueur Scotch Whisky. Rotation 1971. Bottled by Gordon & MacPhail under licence. No box. 26 2/3 Fl Ozs. 100 proof. Level high neck. Very minor wear to label, otherwise good condition. A somewhat significant Macallan compared to the variations we commonly see. And it's not only because it's bottled at 100 proof but instead because it specifies Liqueur Whisky prominently across the label. Liqueur was a term used to identify a whisky as being high quality and was used from around the 1920s to the 1970s. This is one of the earliest examples of Macallan with an age statement and although bottled by Gordon & MacPhail is deemed an official bottling. This example is specifically from a parcel of stock that was rotating in 1971 and is most likely from a significant supply of Macallan distilled in 1958. These hardly ever turn up in auction, especially in such crisp condition as this one.

  • talisker 1940-1957 - wolverhampton & dudley - sherry cask

    talisker 1940-1957 - wolverhampton & dudley - sherry cask

    1 bottle Talisker 1940 - 1957. Rare Old Liqueur Whisky. Sherry Cask. Bottle by Wolverhampton & Dudley Breweries Ltd. Park Brewery, Wolverhampton. Short red branded screw cap. No box. No Capacity stated. 70 proof. Level in neck. Marks and torn label. An almost imaginary bottle of Talisker Whisky. From our research, this was distilled at Carbost, Isle Of Skye in February 1940 and filled into sherry casks that were left to mature for at least 17 years until it was bottled in March 1957. This bottle along with an identical example which can also be found in this sale was given to the vendor by their father over 30 years ago. They have been stored in what we assume could be their original wooden crate. The vendor believes that their father purchased a whole case of 12 and consumed 10 of them over the years.  It was very common back in the day for breweries to bottle Scotch whisky under their own label. These sort of whiskies rarely made it out of the town where they were supplied. They often made their way into local pubs, groceries and private households where they were consumed. I imagine a local artist design the very quirky and original label which states it's a RARE OLD LIQUEUR 70 PROOF and interestingly quotes ''IT'S A FINE SPEERIT THE TALISKER; THERE'S NO A PETTER MADE''. The label design itself is nothing like you see today; even the top of the cap is branded with FIDE DE FORTITUDINE meaning Fath & Fortitude. The liquid itself I can only imagine will be remarkable; Talisker from this period is virtually non-existent and those who have ever tasted any of the G&M bottlings from the 1940s will agree these will be equally as stunning if not better. A once in a lifetime opportunity!
