Auction Highlights

Lot 318 Laphroaig 14 year old USA circa 1950

Old Laphroaigs are well recognised now as some of the greatest and most beautiful whiskies ever made, so to find one bottled as far back as around 1950 is a true rarity. This 14 year old example was bottled for the USA and imported by the Carlton company of Baltimore. It hails from the days of a more robust bottling strength of 91.4 US proof (45.7% abv) and features one of the earliest examples of a screw capsule. To find any Islay single malts of this age is almost impossible - even in the retail market - these days, so this is a truly one off chance to acquire such a wonderful piece of liquid Scottish history.

Lot 391 Laphroaig 10 Year Old Rotation 1969

Joining the 14 year old is this immaculately preserved example 10 year old Laphroaig. This was also bottled for USA and imported by the very same Carlton company in 1969. The year was acquired from the outside of the wooden case from which it came; hence the preservation of its original cellophane wrapper and its generally impressive condition and fill level. This one is also bottled at a mouthwatering 91.4 proof and is sealed with a stopper cork. If you've never tried a Laphroaig distilled in the 1950s then this is one of the only chances you'll ever get as these bottlings are now all but impossible to find.
