There are more than a few rare whisky gems which most of us could only dream
of owning never mind tasting up for grabs in the this months Just Whisky auction
which end this Sunday 18th August at 8pm.
A few rare highlights this month if your
pockets are deep enough are a collection of Pappy Van Winkles bottles including

iconic Bourbon at retail, with auctions the only way to access one.
You will also find a Macallan 50 Year
Old, Chichibu Intergalactic Series editions 1 and 2, Rosebank 12 Unblended
Single Malt and Karuizawa 38 Years Old Pearl Geisha as well as a pair of Scotch
Malt Whisky Society flip-flops.

this dual release of exceptionally aged Longmorns was dedicated to Stuart and
Richard Urquhart, Gordon & MacPhailís identical twins. Each chose a cask to be
bottled and released together in this magnificently presented set with both
casks being filled (2nd February 1961) and bottled (2nd February 2018) on the
