Whisky Online Auctions Tasting Notes: Macallan Cask #9313 Colour: Straw Nose: Light and very fresh. Cut grass, bailed hay, straw, citrus rind, peppery watercress and some light notes of shoe polish and new leather. Definitely towards the softer side of Macallan. With a little breathing time it begins to reveal herbal notes such as fresh oregano and rosemary. Also some earthier, rootier qualities and a sweetness that alludes to milk bottle sweets. Palate: Similarly soft, delicate and gentle. Lots of citrus oils, earthy turmeric, a gentle sunflower oil note and some supple mineral notes. Again these greener qualities come through as chopped parsley and chives, cut grass and a foresty bracken note. Some hints of pine resin, clove, more polish notes and a light green pepper aspect. Finish: Medium in length. A rising sootiness, more lemon aspects although this time manifesting in a more medicinal, cough syrupy fashion. These soft peppery qualities persist into the aftertaste giving a warming sensation. Comments: A cask which really shows the lighter side of Macallan. Could potentially last until 30 quite well, although probably not much beyond. At the moment the alcohol level gives good bite and mouthfeel which helps bolster the otherwise rather soft qualities of the distillate.

1 bottle Black Bowmore 1964 - 1994. 2nd Edition. In wooden presentation box. One of 2000 bottles. 75cl. 50%. Level base of neck. Slight wear to capsule. Good condition. Not much can be added about these anymore except how it will destroy anything you've ever tasted before.
1 bottle Springbank 12 year old. Bottled early 1980s. Matured in Sherry Wood. In presentation box. 75cl. 57.1% (100 Proof Sikes). Level in neck. Small tears to box, bottle in good condition. Among the rarest of Springbank's out there. We've only seen this variation appear once before - this was in one of our sales back in 2015. It's very likely this is the same liquid as the legendary Samaroli Springbank. There's no firm way to confirm this, however, their strengths are identical as is the colour of the liquid; so it would suggest it is the same incredible whisky as the famous Samaroli version which is one of only a tiny handful of whiskies to score 98/100 on whiskyfun. A great find and a very rare chance to get this extremely obscure variation of a legendary bottling.
1 bottle Sherriff's Bowmore 8 Year Old. Pear shape bottle. Bottled 1960s. No box. 26 2/3 Fl Ozs. 75 proof. Level in neck. Good condition. Seal slightly perforated but still intact. A rare treat from Bowmore is this utterly beautiful Bowmore that wears its age on its sleeve. This was bottled under the Sherriff's label sometime during the 1960s, but I'm not entirely convinced which side. Going from the collection this comes from it could possibly be the late-1960s which would make this an early 1960s distillate. If it was bottled in the early-mid-1960s we're looking at mid-late-1950s distillate. Either way, you're in for a treat as this has been ranked higher than the Black above.
1 bottle Macallan 30 Year Old. Sherry Cask. In wooden presentation box. 70cl. 43%. Level in neck. Good condition.
1 bottle Islay Mist. Bottled 1950s. D. Johnston & Co. Laphroaig Distillery Isle of Islay. Distilled and Blended in Scotland. Stopper cork with branded foil seal. In original cellophane wrap (please not this has been removed for photography and reattached). 26 2/3 fl ozs. 75 proof. Strength 25 Under Proof. Level base of neck. Good condition. Without a doubt the most stunning and interesting whisky in this sale. Islay Mist is a blend that was first created in the 1920s as a bit of a fluke by Ian Hunter, the distillery manager at Laphroaig. He was appointed by Hugh Morrison of Islay House to choose a whisky for his son's 21st Birthday. Ian thought Laphroaig alone would be too peaty for some guests so he created a vatting with a number of Speyside whiskies. It was such a success it has long since been the go-to peated blend ever since. Until 1992 Laphroaig has always been the base malt along with other key distilleries that often included Glenlivet & Glen Grant. This example from the 1950s is by far the oldest example we have ever come across. The whiskies composed to make up Islay Mist were generally at least 8 years old which means that it is possible this will contain whisky distilled in the 1940s. For us, although joined by some of the most well thought of whiskies in the World, has to be the one to look out for in this sale. A classic example of old school blended whisky in pristine condition and yet another unseen whisky soon to join our sales archive.

1 bottle Macallan 30 Year Old. Masters Of Photography Rankin. One of 1000 bottles. In leatherbound presentation box with original polaroid. 70cl. 43%. Level in neck. Slight wear to bottom of label, otherwise good condition. The Masters Of Photography by Rankin is a series of 1,000 bottles and unique portraits taken by Rankin on the Macallan estate that heavily features Easter Elchies House. Most will agree the best portraits include the nude shots of Tuuli, Rankin's inspiration and wife. Each piece is presented with the original Polaroid that is depicted on the bottle of 30 year old with a booklet telling the story and Rankin's signature to certify it's an original. ''This project is very special to me for two reasons. Firstly, I've been able to come back to the country of my birth and portray its beauty through one of the most ambitious projects I've ever attempted. The second reason is that this collection marks the full stop after Polaroid, as we head into the digital age.'' RANKIN

Here's one to drool over. A young Old Pulteney bottled in the 1960s by Cadenhead. This has been bottled at an interesting 85 proof rather than the standard 70 proof. Old Pulteney was closed for nearly three decades and rebuilt in 1959, making this one of the oldest Pulteney's out there.

1 bottle Springbank 1977-1996. DOWTS. No box. 70cl. Level low neck. Minor marks to label, otherwise good condition. An incredibly obscure official 1977 Springbank. This was bottled in 1996 as a private enterprise. The label was designed by artist Emma Dunbar. I spoke with Emma and her inspiration was based on the tasting notes at the time. DOWTS, I believe are the initials of the surnames of the original 5 people of the syndicate. The stickmen represent the people’s occupations/hobbies. There's no ABV stated, however, the beading suggests its high and most certainly cask strength. Definitely, one to look out for whether you're a drinker or collector!
