Selling MacAllan 1939 & 1945

Postby adebaeck » Sun Jan 09, 2011 1:43 am

I was given two MacAllan Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky's

one of 1939
First Bottled 1979
Distilled 1939 / Re-Bottled 2002
Years 40 Old
43.0% Alc/Vol
This bottle has some deposit

The second one of 1945
Cask N° 262
Distilled 1945 / Bottled 2002
Years 56 Old
51.5% Alc/Vol

As I'm not a collector I wish to sell those bottles and wonder if anyone could be of any advice to me for doing so. I'm based in California.

Thanks very much

The 56YO from 1945 is currently going for around £10K in the UK. Not sure about the 1939 but probably something similar. Bottles like this will require some expert valuation. I would suggest finding a specialist auction house/seller. Could also go to specialist retailers who will buy these but bear in mind they will need to account for their own margins/taxes in anything they can offer you.
