Balblair 1951

Cross Reference To Delivery Table: 2.00


1 bottle Balblair 1951. 24 years old at time of bottling. No box. 80 proof. 26 2/3 fluid ounces. Level in neck. Some natural aging/wear to label, good condition for age. 

This was a privately owned cask that spent its entire life maturing at the Balblair Distillery. The vendor's father had been unaware that it was still in his posesion at the time of bottling hence it's long aging. It was bottled at 24 years of age in Elgin by Gordon & MacPhail using the distillery's licenced labelling of the time. The bottles were never sold publicly and were either consumed, handed out or sold privately within the family. A stunning rarity that should make for memorable drinking. This is one of the last bottles still owned by the family. 

This bottle is from the same family owned batch at the one from the previous auction.

Although a condition report is normally included in the lot description, we would recommend viewing/close inspection prior to placing any bids.

If this is not an option and you have questions beyond the offered description and images, please use the link "ask a question" to make specific enquiries or to receive a more in-depth condition report. Otherwise lots will be sold as seen and described.

Please note: due to the various ages of bottles and their seals, condition of liquid is at the buyer's discretion and no claim can be lodged against failure/leakage in transit.
