Rare 1937 Glenfiddich To Hit The Auction Block
A bottle of the world's oldest whisky, Glenfiddich Rare Collection 1937, will be auctioned off on April 4 in Vanderbilt Hall at Grand Central Terminal. The auction is part of New York's Tartan Week celebration. A single cask of whisky produced 61 bottles of the whisky and due to import laws, this bottle is the only 750ml bottle of the 1937 ever produced. The spirit was aged in cask for 64 years and bottled in 2001. The profits from the auction will benefit City Harvest, which seeks to end hunger in New York. The whisky is said to have a nose of toffee, cinnamon and cloves and a sweet, cedar palette. Recently in an article on one of the bottles in South Africa, the prices was listed as being around $29,000 but since this is a one-off bottle the price might go even higher.
