Bottle Numbers Low or High

Postby greenman » Tue Jun 01, 2010 4:32 pm

When collecting, for example, Bowmore Gold 1964, does the lower the bottle number make it worth more then a higher number, say bottle number 12 compare to bottle number 450. Thanks.

I happen to have TWO bottles number 97 of limited runs!

"97 of 162" is the Evan williams WL special, the other a 2009 vatting of the "Whisky Lounge 2oo9" release...250 bottles of 200cl!

..and hey Mr. Moderator, they are NOT for sale!

But if you;re in the area stop by for a dram!

The only numbers I can see generally having appeal over a broad spectrum of collectors are 1 and X/X (I have seen one that was 3000/3000).

Otherwise, it is a personal thing. Say bottle 2001/3000 for the birthyear of a child, bottle 32 because it was their sports number, etc.
