Ultra rare 32-year-old Hogshead Macallan cask is for sale on Auction Your Cask, the world’s only live online auction platform, exclusively dedicated to cask whisky.

Whisky auctions have made headlines this year with soaring sales prices, with 2021 set to be one of the most profitable years to date for secondary scotch sales. This auction will be no different, with the Estimated value landing between £175,000 – £200,000 ($210,526-$240,600).

This auction will also herald the 26 yr old Springback that has been widely anticipated. Managing Director of Cask Trade Simon Aron says, “This is an exceptional auction, and we are proud to have some extraordinary casks, including The Macallan 1989 alongside a rare Springbank. We are really excited to see how they sell”.

About 1989, Hogshead Macallan

The whisky was distilled 32 years ago with a 46% ABV. Currently, there are five bids placed on the cask; with ten days left of the auction, it will be exciting to see how high the price goes for this cask. If the auction goes at all like the whisky auctions earlier this year, we can expect this cask will make a killing.
