Help evaluating the price of 3-generation-old bottles

Postby CarolinaMagro » Thu Sep 13, 2012 8:08 pm

Good evening,
My name is Carolina Magro, I'm a 20year old vet student, from Lisbon, Portugal. When my grandfather died, I inherited an old collection of whisky which has been kept untouched for over 25years. Recently I managed to catalogue most of them and I was wondering where would be the appropriate place to evaluate their current value.
I would very much appreciate if you could help me some how or point me in the right direction.
Thank you very much for your time,
Carolina Magro

Re: Help evaluating the price of 3-generation-old bottles

Postby ReneRene » Wed Nov 26, 2014 4:39 pm

Hello, I understand that you might not be expecting this and of course I would completely understand if you turned me down.... I was wondering if you would be at all interested in selling the bottle of Glen Corrie that you have...

Hi there, that's a wonderful collection, financially as the great majority are blends I don't see there being anything particularly valuable in amongst it all, however the devil is in the detail, perhaps a collector would pay very highly for one of the bottles as it is missing from their collection, apparently trivial details on the label can be very important to the enthusiast.

Auctioning the collection would be an idea, In the UK and Germany there are many auction houses but transporting the bottles would be expensive and troublesome.

Contact the whisky specialist in Andora - they might give better more local advice - either that or throw some great whisky parties....
