Information on 67 year old whiskey

Postby daisy12chic » Tue Dec 26, 2006 10:44 pm

I have two bottles of whiskey. The first is a 1939 unopened bottle of Seagram's V.O. Canadian Whiskey. The other is a 1967 bottle of Canadian Club Whiskey. I have attached pictures (hopefully they show up). I am wondering what these might be worth and how to get in touch with collectors if they might want them. Please let me know if you have any thoughts. Thanks so much!

We also have this bottle which I forgot to post but I'm unsure what it is. Thanks!

Well, while I am certainly no expert regarding old bottles of blended canadian whisky, I think, based on previous answers to similar questions, that your bottles are not worth that much. Sorry.

The last picture is of a bottle of rosé wine, a sparkly wine, that is quite refreshing in the summertime.

rookie error... the whisky isnt 67 year old, the aged it was bottled at it will always be.
what you have is a 76year old whisky bottle with whatever age whisky it is inside.

Mateus! My buddies drank gallons of that stuff when they were 19.

I bet that bottle isn't though. Unlike a fine vintage champagne I don't think Mateus Rose is famed for its potential to mature in the bottle, particularly if it has been upright all this time... :?

Oh I remember the heady days when I considered Liebfraumich, and Hock as sophisticated drinks (with Asti Spumante for special occasions!) Spending ages looking through the wine list beforer plumping for the "Blue Nun." A bottle of Grouse was a rare treat!

I was a pretty cheap date back then...

The Canadian Club is a 6 years old whisky.
Old canadian whiskies are not much sought after. Some famous Scotch whiskies from that period have reached about US$ 150.
I would be suprised if you will get more than US$50 for each of these bottles.

:roll: Do you ever get the idea folks come here (and other forums) asking for 'info' when what they're really hoping for is a buyer? (No need to answer -- it's a 'thinking-aloud' question that kinda answers itself, huh?)

As long as, like me, you are now the grey/balding side of 30, you can be forgiven...

The thought hadn't even begun to contemplate the merest possibility of crossing my mind... :roll:
