If anyone is interested RMW have just started an auction - some nice old bottles amongst other trinkets. Over the years so much stuff has gone through the hundreds of auctions - they're actually great record of what has been. Martin Green and Malcolm Greenwood once released a couple of books making use of the photography for the catalogues.

I think there is a missed opportunity - a web site dedicated to showcasing these auction images of old bottles could be quite a resource.

Just saying.

A typical mix of ancient and more recent, big bucks and potential bargains as well as genuine rarities alongside non-bottled whisky related lots.

The current auction is a special charity auction and 100% of the proceeds will be donated to Scottish Rugby legend Doddie Weir's "My Name'5 Doddie Foundation" to help find a cure for Motor Neurone Disease. Many of the lots are rugby themed and unique - like a ball signed by the current Scottish team. There are also some private tastings up for grabs as well as other non-bottled delights.

Start Date: 21st February 2018

End Date: 7th March 2018 8:00pm
