I work for a doctor who tells me the bottle and its contents are worthless. His advice is to open it and enjoy it.
If someone could either confirm or deny my employers assessment I would appreciate it.
The good news: it is not worthless as the good Dr. suggests. First off, there is some nice 50s and 60s distillation in that bottle. Second it is bottled for a specific event that some people may find collectible. The bad news is it isn't worth enough to retire on. In fact these types of bottlings are ubiquitous. There are some like me who would want to drink the liquid and some who would want the bottle. Rarely one-in-the-same. I'll offer a wild guess at $50 - $100. Harder still is trying to sell it. Best strategy, give it to a whisky drinking friend as a unique gift.
