Congratulations to the Guardian who won this historic auction! He prefers to remain anonymous .
Besides going home with his prize, he will also enjoy a trip for two to Scotland, home of single malt that started it all, which includes money-can’t-buy private tours and tastings at The Glenlivet distillery.
It was a crowded night as their event ticket was sold out within weeks of release. 

In addition to the main auction, another lucky winner, Guardian Victor Liew went home with a bottle of The Glenlivet 25 Year Old XXV worth RM3,000 as a prize for correctly guessing the winning bid of the Vintage 1966. Victor is a Group Agency Leader Wealth Advisor at Manulife and was one of the pioneering Guardians when The Malaysian Chapter of The Glenlivet Guardians began in 2013.

It was a lovely night enjoying whiskies from The Glenlivet, from the Classics range which includes the Founder’s Reserve, 12 Year Old, 15 Year Old, and 18 Year Old, along with the Master Distiller’s Reserve range, and the precious The Glenlivet 25 Year Old XXV.

Guests also enjoyed exclusive experiences with partners Kapiti, Beans Depot and Borneo Harvest that have been a part of the Malaysian Chapter of The Glenlivet Guardians journey so far.

Kapiti welcomed guests with a variety of tantalisingly smooth premium New Zealand ice creams with flavours like Summer Nectarine, Black Doris Plum, and Fig & Honey. Beans Depot served specialty coffees from Panama, Brazil and Ethiopia to complement the classic expressions of The Glenlivet. Last but not least, Borneo Harvest vowed guests with their skillful filleting of truly traditional Scottish cold smoked salmon and hot smoked salmon that had just been air-flown in for the event just the day before.
Thanks to Borneo Harvest , we were able to taste Sottish salmon in mustard and dill toppings .
The Vintage 1966 is the second release in the Winchester Collection, a series of rare 50-Year-Old Scotch whiskies from the single malt that started it all. It is the pinnacle of craftsmanship with every element - from the single malt itself to the bottle it is housed in - being the result of painstaking artistry by celebrated craftspeople from the British Isles.

Fans of sherry casked whiskies will be delighted to know the Vintage 1966 was aged entirely in a used sherry cask as opposed to a Bourbon hogshead cask that was used for the Vintage 1964. The resulting single malt is a remarkable liquid that layers the soft smooth notes of The Glenlivet with delicate spice – a teasing intermingling of cinnamon and liquorice – and offers an exceptionally long, smooth finish, with a pleasing hint of dryness.

The Vintage 1966 joins the Vintage 1964 to become one of the most sought after and exquisite whisky collections in the world. Global pricing of The Glenlivet Winchester Collection Vintage 1966 stands at approximately USD 25,000.
