Not Quite 50 Years Old Yet ...

Postby Remo_Gazzola » Tue Oct 20, 2009 12:55 pm

However, I do have a vintage 42 year old unopened bottle from The Glenlivet Cellar Collection dated 1967.

Contents: 70cl 46% Vol
Distilled: 1967
Bottled: 2000
Sample Code: 2GC8003
Signed: Jim Ceryle

It comes in an Oak Box that holds a single bottle. There are no scratches at all on the box and the label and seal on the bottle is in original condition from distillery. The box itself is in perfect condition. All in pristine condition.

I know this is a collectors edition and is of worthable value.

Does anybody know what it might be worth ?

Thanks for the advice, both on Age :oops: and the link. Do you know if those prices reflect the actual purchase cost at the time of bottling and if the price would go up or down over the years.

Thanks again,
Remo

I am the proud owner of a 1964 Glenlivet collection bottle that is worth every cent of the asking price of $ 2000. The bottle you are inquiring about has age, but I don't know other factors such as taste, cask type, etc. which would enhance or diminish the price of the malt or perhaps even appeal to a collector. Without that information it is hard to state a definite value. However from a general statistical approach one could conclude that the value could be in the $ 800 - $ 1200 range. This is a general direction and NOT an absolute value.

Cheers!
