    World's 'Oldest' Whisky Auctioned

    World's 'oldest' whisky could sell for £10,000

    A BOTTLE of what could be the oldest whisky in the world is to be sold at auction next month.

    The rare Scotch is thought to be more than 150 years old and is expected to fetch up to £10,000 - about £300 a dram - at the Bonhams sale of fine wine, port and spirits in London.

    The label reads: "Glenavon *** Special Liqueur Whisky Bottled by the Distillers." Research by the auctioneers shows Glenavon closed down in the 1850s, meaning that if it was bottled by the distillers, it will be one of the oldest bottles of whisky ever auctioned.

    The bottle has been put up for sale by a woman from Northern Ireland, whose family has owned it for generations.

    Bonhams is maintaining client confidentiality, but said the woman remembers the bottle being in her grandmother's home in the 1920s.

    The bottle is slightly smaller than the familiar 75cl and made from olive-green glass. The liquid appears to be pale gold and the level is surprisingly high for such an old bottle - almost to the neck - said Bonhams.

    The Glenavon Distillery was situated at Ballindalloch in Speyside where the River Avon meets the River Spey.

    It was recorded as operating in 1851 and licensed to a John G Smith in 1852.

    John Gordon Smith was the son of George Smith, founder of the nearby Glenlivet Distillery, and he joined his father in the business in 1846, helping to establish a small distillery at Delnabo in 1849.

    At that price, it will continue being the world's oldest whisky.
    Aside from an ever increasing number of mortals who have willfully chosen to worship Satan and his minions, our battle has always been against the powers and principalities operating surreptitiously throughout this twisted world.
