In 2003 I purchased a bottle of Glenfiddich Concorde Private Vintage 1976 while on a transatlantic flight. I hasten to add that I was travelling on air miles. I paid £200 for the whisky and it remains unopened and in perfect condition. Was it a wise addition to my pension fund or did I just naively get carried away with the kudos of travelling supersonic? I have retained the evidence of its provenance including my boarding pass and on-board sales brochure “The Concorde Collection”. Thank you in advance for your advice.

K. Hahm. Leeds. England Glenfiddich Vintage Cask Number 2433 distilled in 1976 was exclusively bottled for Concorde to be sold onboard to their customers. Approximately 280 bottles were produced at 52.5% Vol. and presented in a fine wooden box. I think it was a very good buy to help with your pension fund as anything to do with Concorde is very collectable and this being an excellent Vintage Glenfiddich you could expect to realise £300 to £400 at auction in Scotland.

I live in Chicago and came across this bottle of Malt Trust Bunnahabhain 37 Years Old for $135 U. S. I have tried to find more info on Malt Trust through the internet but have been unable to come up with anything. I have heard that Malt Trust is no longer an independent bottler due to some problems. My question to you is do you feel this is a collectable bottle and if so do you think the price is right? Thanks in advance for your assistance.
