They're probably worth something more than what you paid. The unfortunate part is that you can't use them to decide on the purchase of a full bottle as these are likely long gone from the shelf.

You certainly can drink them. But if you decide you like them, you will not be able to replace it with a full-size bottle.

A quick repeat glance shows the Glen Mhor which may become a little more valuable as the distillery is no longer with us. More typically though, there is more emphasis on official bottling miniatures instead of independent bottlers. The exceptions to this is distilleries with very limited releases such as Ben Wyvis.
