36yr old Strathisla Single Malt

Postby moondancer » Wed Oct 25, 2006 2:28 pm

I am organising a charity event and we have been given a 36yr old Strathisla Single Malt for auction. It is bottle no. 102/166 distilled 02.67 bottled 03.03 from cask no. 1329 alc. vol 45.9%, boxed. Can anyone tell me what this should be worth and should we be selling it in a specialist auction rather than at a charity ball?

That sounds like the Peerless Bottling by Duncan Taylor. It sells at The Whisky Exchange for £82.98 before VAT. Looks like a very nice whisky

Go for the charity ball!! :)


Cheers!

You should get a better return at a charity auction if your clients are any good. I have often seen 100.00 bottles going for up to 500.00.


The idea is to get whisky drinkers at tables to purchase it as a group and they can then drink it amonst themselves at the event.

If you are in the UK a measure is 25mls so that equates to 28 measures but you can round it down to 25 measures if you like for spillage :wink: .

How you whipp up the crowd is by saying stuff like 'who would can't pay £5 a shot for a 36yo whiskey(which by the way is very resaonable) come on now start me off at 140.00 okay lets say 100 that's only 3.50 a shot' .... and you can pre work out the price per shot up and up and groups may be happy to pay £10 a shot which equates to 250-280.




Or simply sell of the bottle in measures for a tenner each and saves milking the crowd. I can't see why you would not sell 25-28 measures at a charity ball.
