CAPERDONICH 28 YEAR OLD 1991 DUN BHEAGAN

Donated by Bob Hutchinson, $600  – Not available at LCBO

This Caperdonich was distilled in February 1991 and matured for 28 years in a single hogshead cask #17945 before being bottled in 2019 with a yield of just 210 bottles. Dun Bheagan is an ancient Gaelic village on the Isle of Skye and it is where the seat of Clan Macleod has been since the 13th century. Rumour has it that it has been the home of many illicit distilleries over the years and is where the art of whisky making has been passed down through generations.

LITTLEMILL 27 YEAR OLD 1988 – OLD & RARE PLATINUM (HUNTER LAING)

Donated by Dietrich Engineering, $600  – Not available at LCBO

An Old & Rare Platinum bottling of Littlemill single malt Scotch whisky, distilled back in November 1988. It matured in a single refill hogshead for 27 years before being bottled in May 2016 by Hunter Laing. 170 bottles were produced, giving us a glimpse of the whisky produced by this sadly closed distillery.

CHIVAS REGAL

Donated by Roy Verstraete, $279

A classic blend, Chivas Regal 12 year old is very malty and extremely rich in flavour. This is a 4.5 litre, super massive, goliath bottle of Chivas, with a handy cradle to help you pour.

THE DALMORE, CIGAR MALT RESERVE 

Donated by Dave Williams, $200

The Dalmore Cigar Malt Reserve is an aromatic, full-bodied expression intended to be paired with fine cigars. It is produced at the centuries old Dalmore Distillery located on the northern shores of the Firth of Cromarty, deep in the Scottish Highlands. Dalmore Cigar Malt Reserve is a beautiful marriage of single malt stocks aged in American white oak ex-bourbon casks, 30 year old Matusalem oloroso sherry butts and premier cru Cabernet Sauvignon wine barrique before being bottled at 88 proof

HIGHLAND PARK 18 YEAR OLD VIKING PRIDE

Donated by Mike Bossenberry, $200  – Not available at LCBO

Highland Park’s 18 Year Old enjoyed a redesign in 2017, receiving livery inspired by the wood carvings from Urnes Stave Church and a new sub-name, “Viking Pride”. The Orkney single malt remains the same as before – rich, complex and supremely delicious.

GLENMORANGIE 18 YEAR OLD EXTREMELY RARE

Donated by Kim Scrimgeour, $199

70cl, 43%. Part of Glenmorangie’s Prestige Range, this 18 year old spent its first 15 years in American white oak bourbon casks. After this time, 30% was transferred to Oloroso sherry casks where it spent its final days, as the rest remained in bourbon casks. After 18 years has passed in total, the whisky was reunited and bottled at 43% ABV. A thick, creamy and fruity single malt presented in a wonderfully elegant bottle. It certainly looks prestigious

OWN A PIECE OF EXETER’S HISTORY – AN AUTHENTIC EXETER STREETLAMP

 

  • ExeterLamp_IMG_3564

 

Donated by Peter and Esther Warner
Valued at $2500

Autumn Indulgence Live Auction will have an extremely rare and unique item on offer this year. Thanks to the generosity of Peter and Esther Warner, an original Exeter Streetlamp can be yours. Delivery available within 2 hours of Grand Bend.

More

According to “Exeter” by Joseph Wooden, the town first erected 8 gas lights in 1884. The Exeter Electric Light and Power Company, incorporated in 1887 bought the Verity Plough Works building on the corner of Main and Wellington St (current LCBO) for their generator and by 1915 there were 19 incandescent street lights. Ontario Hydro took over the supply of electricity in 1915 and by 1917 Exeter had its own PUC. Ornamental iron fixtures on wooden poles were used until 1935. They were replaced by these ornamental streetlights on metal poles, including the light we have on offer. They remained in use along Main Street until 1966 when fluorescent lamps on cement poles were erected.

This is your chance to own a piece of history. The cast iron base which supports the globe has been sandblasted and repainted in a black colour and an octagonal pole (not original) is similarly finished ready for installation on your property. The lamp fixture itself is 16” in diameter and sits 41” high on top of the 9’ pole. Well known Exeter Auctioneer Bob Heywood indicated the last one like it he had sold was about 20 years ago.

Come to Autumn Indulgence October 5th at the Huron Country Playhouse to try your bid for this piece of Exeter history.
