Five top lots to watch at Bonhams’ upcoming Hong Kong auction

Hong Kong’s fine wine auction world is never short of superlatives. Hardly a month passes by without a major auction house doling out “legendary” or “historic” wine sales.

But this month, even in an auction world familiar to glitz and glitter, Bonhams’ upcoming ‘Fine and Rare Wine and Whisky’ Sale on 18 May still commands utmost attention, with a rare pair of bespoke 1926 60 Year Old Macallan that are likely to smash world records.

Bonhams put the estimate for the respective bottle at HK$3.6 million – HK$4.6 million, yet earlier this year in Dubai, the same pair with different bottle numbers were sold for US$600,000 each, surpassing Bonhams’ high estimate.

In addition to the two supernova lots, the sale will present a total of 650 lots with 210 lots of wine and 440 lots of whisky, including the oldest expression of Japan’s cult whisky Karuizawa 1960, a bottle of Suntory-Rolling Stone 50th anniversary bottle, a magnum of 1986 Domaine d e la Romanée-Conti, Romanée-Conti and a double magnum of 1986 DRC Montrachet.

Here we’ve rounded up five of the top lots to watch at the upcoming auction. Click through the pages to see details of each lot.
