Johnny Walker blue label

Postby TheSmurfinator » Fri May 14, 2010 10:49 am

My father passed away recently and we found this 70cl bottle in the cupboard.
I believe it is supposed to be in a presentation box, which it isn't, but it is still sealed. What would it be worth, and where would be the best place to find it an appreciative home?

In the super market over here you pay about 150 Euro for a Blue Label.

ok, thanks for that. Do you think I could get £100 for it without the box?

There are three different bottlings of Johnny Blue that I know about. The typical bottling has really gone down in price. In the US, you can find it as low as $120 but $150 is more typical. Typically this would be purchased to drink and not to collect so the box shouldn't have that great an influence. However, people will want to pay less than what they can get it at for retail.

However, there is a George V release that sells for around $500 as well as a cask strength bottling in a crystal decanter and presentation box. This retails for $2600-3500. Presentation box will have a greater influence in what you can get for these two.
