UK: Dalmore Oculus Scotch whisky fetches GBP27,000
A bottle of The Dalmore Oculus Scotch whisky containing malts distilled more than 140 years ago has been sold for GBP27,600 (US$46,000) at auction.
The 58-year-old whisky, bottled in a crystal decanter, was sold to an anonymous bidder at an auction held by Bonhams in Edinburgh earlier today (18 November).
The sale makes The Dalmore Oculus one of the most expensive bottles of Scotch ever sold. The whisky is a blend of malts from 1868, 1878, 1922, 1926 and 1939.
"The Dalmore Oculus reached a fantastic sale price, especially in view of the current economic climate," said Martin Green, whisky specialist at Bonhams.
