Should I pour or sell??

Postby suziewoo2 » Sat Aug 22, 2009 4:15 pm

Hi, As a lover of fine single malt, I'm not sure what to do with a recent "gift" from my mother-in-law! She has given me an unopened bottle of Dimple, complete with seal, gold wire and in its original box. It was given to her husband as a gift and he died in 1970 so it must be at least that old, if not older. It is a 26 2/3 Fl oz size.

I don't think its going to be to my taste but wondered if it had any value. If it is worth something I will sell it and give the proceeds to charity.

Any idea of its value or do I pour it down the sink???!!

Cheers, Nick

These are not worth much at all and your better off opening it and trying it. If it's not to your taste just leave it aside for visitors :wink: .

I have one from the Sixties boxed too and it cost me less than 30Euro and I got a half bottle from 12Euro which I opened and in all fairness it is not to my taste either :?
