Highland Park 40yo Ceramic Flagon - bottled in the 1970's

Postby adogranonthepitch » Sun Apr 09, 2006 10:34 am

OK guys, on my travels, I have come across a chap who has a Highland Park 40yo black ceramic flagon, bottled in the 1970's. I think it was bottled for the talian market, as there is a map of Europe with the UK and Italy, but it doesnt have the tax strip.
This man has had it 25 years plus and is 100% genuine.
I know one sold at McTears in 2000 for £470.
Any ideas how much its worth today?

yours in whisky

Hi there,
I do try to help wherever possible with valuations, but this is one bottle I don't have personal records for.
I can only confirm the McTears price.

Sorry,

??? Interesting. Never heard of it before. Do you have a photograph by any chance?

The price will depend on the bottler and the quality of the bottle.

But £470 might be okay if it is an original bottling, since the 1958 original HP was sold last year for £498 on one website (TWE?).

There's a picture of it in Zagatti's first book but with a tax stamp and an Italian label. In my copy of Collecting Malt Whisky published in 2003 it lists that one was sold for £470 in 2000 but I wouldn't think it had risen too much in value since then.
