Gooderham and Wertz / CC whiskey

Postby mr3dman » Mon Nov 21, 2011 5:21 pm

Would like to know what your thoughts are on what I have. I have a bottle of Gooderham and Wertz whiskey in a commerative 18xx year decanter. It is in the box it came in and has a tax seal from 1945 on it. I know that the company was bought/ changed to Canadian Club. The cork seal is still in great shape, the whiskey has never seen the sun and shows great carmel color. I am interested in wether something like this is better as a conversation piece or saving to drink someday? Is old whiskey worth anything? I will get pics up in the next day or so. Thanks

I am sorry, I know nothing about this particular whiskey. Hopefully someone can help you out. Certainly seems like a good conversation piece regardless of any value. :thumbsup:

I find postings about this particular brand every now and again but it never goes anywhere. I've had it for the better part of 8 years now and always wondered about wether it is any good or has value. I know about the company and it's history, not so much abt the Whiskey. Thanks for the reply though

We are whisky enthusiasts, not experts. While our enthusiasm causes us to learn a decent bit about Whisky, I think you, and quite a few others are awfully presumptuous to think that you can post some random bottle, and get feedback from us forum members of any huge value. Sure it is always worth a try, but most of us have the same level of resources that you do.

Very few of us work in the Whisky agency, and off the top of my head I can't think of a prominent (or active) forum member that works in/ specializes in the Canadian Whisky industry, which you may need for this particular bottle.
