A rare 54-year-old bottle of Scottish single malt whisky is expected to fetch a whopping £150,000 at an auction. The bottle of Bowmore 1957, will be the main attraction at Bonhams' Whiskey Sale in Edinburgh on Wednesday.

One of the only 12 bottles, the 54-year-old single malt is the oldest the distillery has ever released and the oldest whisky ever to come from the Isle of Islay, the Daily Mail reported.

Auctioneers expect it to sell for between £100,000 and £150,000.

The whisky itself is said to carry initial flavours of blueberries, cassis, figs, sea salt and eucalyptus followed by dark chocolate.
