We Inherited Some Interesting Bottles...

Postby dianeaprl » Wed Jul 07, 2010 11:06 pm

HI, My name is Diane and I am new here. I am trying to research the value of several bottles of whiskey my husband inherited when his Aunt and Uncle passed on.

The most interesting bottle is Overholt Rye Whiskey/1904--unopened.
A few others are:
Hudson's Bay Best Procurable--no date
Park & Tilford Special Selection--no date
Bulloch Lade's--no date
Inver House Green Plaid--1992
Ballantine's--1971
Harvey's Special--no date
Virginia Gentleman Straight Bourbon--no date
Haig & Haig--no date
All are unopened, and there are several more bottles, too.

I am trying to find a person or place that can/will give us an appraisal on them. Any suggestions?

Thank you so very much.
Diane

Hi Diane,

where are you?

They seem quite interesting but perhaps not the Faberge Eggs of whisky.

If you want a rough idea of value because you are going to keep them - then can I suggest you post pictures in the the forum using a hosting site such as photobucket?

If you want to sell them, I would send them to Butterfields / Bonhams in LA to sell.

PS..leaving for an extended visit to Alaska in a few days, so photos will most likely post after the first week of August, unless I get a spare moment to attend to that.
