Hazelwood tripletts

Postby AVB » Tue Feb 16, 2010 2:46 am

Anyone want to make an educated guess on what a set of the three Hazelwoods is worth?

Centennial (100th birthday)
105 (105th birthday)
Reserve (107th birthday)

A shop near me would let his Centennial go for £300.00, only because he has quite a few in stock.

He wants £600 for the 105, but I have spoken to a few members of staff at William Grant and sons and was told that any staff selling their bottles are expecting around £350 - £400.

The reserve as you know is still available at £365.00 I was told last week that they only have several bottles left dotted around various world of whisky outlets, when these are gone the value should rise. Another shop near me says he wont take a penny less than £750.00 for his bottle.

A bottle of centennial was on ebay last week and never met its reserve item number 270526627674 highest bid was £400 and there was 26 bids.

I think if you were to put all 3 into one lot at auction at Bonhams in America they would fetch a good price to a collecter who knows about them, think they would make a bit less here at the sale in Edinburgh.

I'm surprised that anyplace has a few bottles of the Centennial laying around. From what I have seen £300 is a damn good price too. I pretty much agree that the 105 is in the £400-450 range in a private sale. Once the Reserve sells out I'm figuring that the set should be worth £1800 in a year or so.

I'll let you know of the shop after I have bought my bottle of the Centennial, when funds allow. He has four in stock, and hasn't sold any in a while. He has distillery staff coming in all the time offering him bottles as they know he usually takes them off their hands.

Last Auction hammer prices for Centennial were 4th Nov 2009 @ McTears, 1 went for £300, the other was £320

The sale on 13 MAY 2009, one went under the hammer at only £75.00, the other in the same sale was £130.00

Like everything its supply and demand.

I managed to order and buy a Reserve at the duty free last week, Big Eck can you point me in the right direction for the other bottles, the Centennial & the 105.
Cheers
