Hi Rayben and welcome from me too.

There is another forum on here called "Whisky for Sale" which would be an idea place, but I guess this post will now suffice.

Good luck,

Hi again,
if you are interested, I have a copy of Martin Green's valuation book based on McTears Whisky Auctions and he lists the Glen Moray Vintage 1966 as being worth around 150 GBP as of 2001.

Personally, I think it should now be worth more than this, for two reasons:

1. I would have expected the price to increase in the last 5 years.
2. The McTears quotations are based upon prices achived in 'real-life' McTears auctions. These prices do tend to be lower than many other (internet-based) auction sites, mainly due to the extra charges which accompany them. I speak of Buyers' premiums and VAT which a buyer has to pay on top of the winning bid price. These usually ensure that buyers win items for a lower 'sale price'.

I have record of the 1959, 40 y/o being sold on Ebay.de in 2004 for €703.

I hope this helps,

thanks fro your info we emailed glen moray and they said they were selling a 1963 and 1964 in similar packaging at the distillery for 250gbp however neither of these vintages were in numbered bottles and they say we will get a higher price for the rare bottle we have

My guess would have been 250 to 350 GBP depending upon where and how you sold it.
If online auction, then also on how many people are looking in and interested 'on the day'.

By Ardbeg 1975 do you mean the one (OB) dated 1975 on the front label and NOT a single cask?

There were a few of these:

Ardbeg 1975 - Bottled 1998
Ardbeg 1975 - Bottled 1999
Ardbeg 1975 - Bottled 2000

Plus I believe there was another, bottled 2001
All at 43% vol.

Basically, with these the value tends to differ a little bit between the UK and the rest of the world.
I have seen these sold on Ebay UK for around 200 GBP, maybe even a little more depending upon which one of the 1975's it is.

Here in Germany I would expect slightly lower prices at up to €250.

I hope that gives you an idea.

The Ardbeg 1975 Single Cask bottlings, issued specifically for different countries will sell for much higher prices.

Depending upon which cask, iwould expect anything from €370 to €600.

No problem, OB means Original distillery Bottling as opposed to an independent bottler like G&M, Cadenhead, Signatory ........ etc.

The 1999 is about the most common of those bottles, with the 2000 and 2001 being the most valuable (normally).
But don't let that put you off, there isn't too much difference in price and they are increasing in value year on year now!

These are an excellent investment for the future as well as being excellent whisky!

if your a private indavidual selling the bottle, your not going to be able to get as much as they usually sell for in shops.
i for one have the vintage 1962 and paid about £80 for it :wink:
personally wouldnt pay anywhere near £250 let alone £350 for a 66 glen moray, the market just isnt there. you can buy the 1959 for a wee bit more from jenners.

As i said we contacted glen moray and they gave me the prices that i posted.
It was also them thay told us a bout the fact the bottle is numbered and it will make it more collectable.

the one on the ardbeg site is a single cask and as such worth a lot lot more than the standard release version.
