Glengoyne 15 Year Old in Kiln Decanter

Postby sheffmax » Fri Apr 02, 2010 12:56 pm

I have the above 15 Year old Glengoyne complete with decanter but with slight floaty bits. I have been assured by the distillery that it doesn't affect the flavour.

How do I go about finding a buyer for this? The attached shows a listing (number 65) at Bonhams valuing it at around £250-£300.

Hi Sheffmax,

unfortunately this bottle only reached £72 at Bonhams so you are unlikely to find a buyer for it at £250+. There were three available in the last auction and this can often bring the price down but I did think that a valuation of £250 was a bit steep to start with. my advice would be to hold onto it for the time being and see if they begin to fetch a higher price in future.

H TD, thanks for the response. Once I've held it for a while how would I go about finding a buyer? Using Bonhams or an equivalent auctioneers I'm guessing would reduce that £72 closer to the price I actually paid.
