The market for Laphroaig whisky has grown exponentially in the last five years. High prices are not just reserved for very mature and rare bottlings, even bottles were bottled before the Royal Warrant was appointed to Laphroaig in 1994 command a premium. Any bottles prior to the 1970’s are also very much in demand, so it could be that you are sitting on a small fortune without realising.

If you were shrewd enough to buy some of the limited edition bottlings then you should see a good return on your investment.

This page is intended as a starting point highlighting a few key features about your Laphroaig and how to go about getting it valued, and eventually sold.

How To Date Your Bottle

Whisky does not continue to age when it is in the bottle so holding onto a bottle for a long time does not mean its value will increase. However, an old bottle of ‘standard’ Laphroaig single malt whisky can be collectable as whisky collectors often look for changes in labels.

Bottle volume:

No mention of capacity: most likely pre 1950
26 2/3 fluid ounces: no later than 1980
75cl: from 1980 until 1992
70cl: 1992 onwards

This is a rare bottling of 60% sherry casks and 40% bourbon casks, which were then married together in bourbon

The Six Factors That Affect The Price Of Laphroaig Whisky

There are six factors that will affect the price of your bottle of Laphroaig. These are the age of the whisky, the bottling date, the vintage, whether it is a single cask edition, the level of the whisky and the condition of the label and box.

Macallan Whisky Vintages

Age of Whisky

This refers to the number of years the whisky has spent maturing in the cask, not how long it has been in the bottle. The age is indicated on the label and can vary from 5 to over 30 years old.

Macallan Whisky Worth

Bottling Date

This relates to when the whisky was bottled. As bottles from a specific year are consumed, the remaining bottles become rarer, so a ‘standard’ malt released in the 1980’s can become sought after.

What is Macallan Worth

Distillation Year

The distillation year refers to the specific year in which the whisky was distilled (made).  It is one of the most important factors that can impact the price of your bottle of Laphroaig. 

Macallan Whisky Worth 18 Year Old

Label & Packaging

The label on a bottle of  Laphroaig is very important and if it is damaged in any way then this will have a negative impact on the value. A bottle without its original box could be worth up to 30% less.

Macallan Whisky Level

Level

The level of the whisky has a large impact on the value. It should be into the neck (the narrow part). As alcohol is more volatile than water it is the alcohol that will evaporate first, which damages the flavour.

Macallan Royal Marriage Worth

Single Cask Bottlings

Single cask bottlings are generally more sought after, as by default they are unique. Look out for numbers on your bottle like XXX/250, which would indicate a single cask edition.

Asset 8

“I found Mark’s details online after looking to sell a collectable bottle of whisky. I was going to use a well know auction site but Mark secured an offer higher than the highest estimation from any auction house, within days, even after the 10% commission was deducted. Communication was perfect; punctual, to the point and polite. Collection and delivery were taken care of by Mark and instruction was clear and easy to follow. Payment was received to my bank within days of posting the bottle. I can’t recommend Mark enough; he runs a tight ship gets top end offers from his clients and delivers quickly.”

Rod Fountain, via Google

“Mark has been very helpful in helping me sell a bottle of whisky which was given to my father many years ago. He was very professional and was always quick to reply to my questions. Not knowing anything about whisky, Mark was there to offer some good advice and I believe he is very knowledgeable about his work. The sale was done very [quickly], and the money was in my bank account the next day. I would highly recommend his services.”
