Bowmore 17 question

Postby Oliver » Fri Apr 01, 2005 5:46 pm

Does anyone know the aproximate value of the OB Bowmore 17 which has No Paper label --how does one call it anyway, the clear bottle?

I was just wondering if it is still for sale anywhere as is. Or if it has made as a collectible anywhere...

Thanks and Cheers!

Can't help you with the value, but I'd definitively call it collectible!
To my eyes the old bottles were vastly more attractive than the current paper labelled ones.
Have only empties of the old ones, and can't bring myself to bin them - hmmm - what about decanting, now there's a thought!
:roll:

They're called stencilled labels but I don't know of the value however since they are discontinued they are collectible.

ok, you all convinced me. I am buying a bottle that's collecting dust in a local liquor store...


Cheers,
