Bonhams will be holding a rare whiskey sale in Hong Kong on August 20, featuring a 30-year-old cask of Macallan 1991 Scotch whisky.
Distilled in December 1991, the Macallan whiskey was poured into a Sherry cask in 2017, giving the drink a unique flavour with notes of clove, resin, dried fruit, and soft tannins. The high alcohol content (about 51.5%) opens up the possibility of both subsequent long-term storage and bottling.
Daniel Lam, Bonhams director of wine and spirits in Asia, commented on the upcoming auction: “Whisky casks hitting 30 years old or above are exceedingly rare in the current market. This 1991 Macallan cask on offer in our August sale is an all-rounder of its class: it comes from a prestigious distiller, is casked in top-notch wood, a high-alcohol content and an attractive estimate. We expect a lot of interest as the market now matures towards collecting casks.”
The cask is estimated at approximately HK$ 4 million ($ 514,300 USD).
In November 2019, Bonhams already put up for auction a 30-year-old whiskey cask of Macallan Distillery, when the lot was sold for HK$ 4,464,000, which became the world record for the sale of whiskey in a cask.
