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

 The Suntory – Rolling Stone 50 Year Anniversary bottling 

Distilled and bottled by Suntory, the whisky is one of the 150 bottles created by the Japanese distillery for the legendary rock band Rolling Stones’ 50th anniversary, bearing the rock band’s signature lips and tongue logo.

This whisky is a blend of carefully selected malts distilled and casked in milestone years throughout the band’s 50 year history, including a malt from the year the band formed that has been long-aged in Mizunara (Japanese oak) casks.Its weighty, complex aroma is described to have notes of “dried and ripened fruits, and even cacao and espresso,” and its rich heaviness and slight bitterness expand in the mouth with a velvety smoothness. The aftertaste consists of woodiness akin to the “fragrance of the finest aloeswood, and a soft smokiness,” the auction house describes.

The bottle is set to attract between HK$260,000 and HK$320,000, based on Bonhams’ estimates.
