The online spirits specialist is giving customers the chance to purchase GlenDronach, The Dalmore, and Yamazaki single malts through three silent auctions, the first of which launches this week.

Multi-award-winning online drinks retailer and specialist Master of Malt has announced a trio of exciting silent auctions, the first of which launches tomorrow (Friday 22 April) with The Dalmore Decades: The No.4 Collection. 

The first auction will take place over one full week, ending 29 April when the winner will be contacted by Master of Malt. The Dalmore Decades: The No.4 Collection includes four superb bottles, featuring distillations from over two decades: 1979, 1980, 1995, and 2000, its first distillation of the new millennium. Just 25 sets were created, with each whisky hand-selected by master distiller Richard Paterson OBE to represent a key moment in The Dalmore’s history.

The second silent auction will launch 13 May with the incredible GlenDronach 50 Year Old. Again, this will take place over one full week, ending 20 May when the winner will be contacted.


GlenDronach 50 Year Old was distilled in 1971 and aged in GlenDronach’s dunnage warehouse in two casks: one ex-Oloroso and one ex-Pedro Ximénez. It’s the oldest expression ever released by the distillery with just 198 bottles filled. These striking bottles are engraved and encased in a bespoke blue leather box embossed with The GlenDronach’s emblem.

To many whisky fans’ delight, Master of Malt has also announced that a silent auction for the highly-coveted Yamazaki 55 Year Old will take place on 27 May 2022. Those interested can follow this link to sign up for any updates. 

First unveiled in 2020, there are just 200 bottles of Yamazaki 55 Year Old in the world. The whisky is a blend of single malts, with components distilled in 1960 and aged in highly-prized, native Japanese Mizunara casks, and others distilled in 1964 and aged in white oak casks. It is housed in an engraved crystal bottle, featuring real gold dust and lacquer on the age marking, while each bottle is presented in a bespoke box made from native Mizunara wood and coated with Suruga lacquer.
