The Macallan 72 Years Old in Lalique Genesis, the oldest Macallan to date, will it exceed the £90,750 price a bottle achieved at auction last month.

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 the 20 Year Old Family Reserve. It is virtually impossible to buy the rare, 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.

A highlight of the auction is Longmorn 57 Years Old 1961 Private Collection Twin-Set which was released near the end of last year with a RRP of £30,000 for the pair, I noticed that the current bidding at going to press so to speak is £5,000 so it will be interesting to see how the late bidding goes for this pair, will it exceed its original RRP or will some one pick themselves up a bargain. The pair of Longmorn 1961 whiskies are one of only 97 pairs available worldwide, 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 same day.

For the second month in a row, Just Whisky has a bottle of Macallan 72 year old up for grabs, this is the  oldest expression of the Macallan to date - the 72 year old single malt is presented in a Lalique crystal decanter. Last month, a bidder snapped up a 72 Year Old for £90,750 and Augustís bottle is expected to achieve a similar price, with the current bidding at going to press at £70,000.

Of course there are always some more affordable whisky gems up for auction, just visit www.just-whisky.co.uk to take part and see the current bids and it is worth noting that Just Whisky uses a proxy system which bids on the customers behalf up to their maximum bid so you don't need to hang around your computer for the auction ending like some auctions.
