3 Bottles...

Postby symbian » Tue Jul 19, 2005 12:08 pm

I have 2 bottles of Canadian Club one from 1974 and one from 1981, both unopened tax sticker in tact. I also have a bottle of seagrams VO from 1981.

Let me know if anyone is interested...

I have no idea either but I think that Canadian Club is probably not in as much demand as, say, vintage Scotch single malts. There may be more interest in the Seagrams VO but again, it would be below the interest in Scotch. Part of the value would depend on how attractive the packaging is - do the bottles have boxes, are they in A1 condition, are they pretty, are they very different from current packaging, is there evaporation? If you really want to find out a value, you could put them on ebay.

The interest in Canadian whiskies is starting to rise, there are more items on the market these days. I think the older bottles will soon be more collectable as people want to take a 'look' at what the whisky was like 20 years ago.

I have a bottle of Canadian Club from the 1940s. The bottle is absolutely beautiful, very ornate. Unfortunately, there was a lot of evapouration over the years.

Anyway, nobody was too interested in buying it.

1974 Canadian Club (UNOPENED)

Postby patbostwick » Thu Sep 15, 2005 5:57 am

My boss gave me a gift of a 1974 Canadian Club with tax label 100% on and UNOPENED. I am looking for info on it, and it is available for sale... Who can tell me about this and offer me a fair price? I know nothing about this bottle at this time, but will soon.

Thank you for your help and interest.
