Yes, this 1948 VO is special and does not taste like what we have today. Don't accept less than $100, but really you should get more. It is from the 1940's so was distilled at the Waterloo distillery. VO is now distilled at Valleyfield, has been for some years. Processes have changed since then and so has the flavour profile.
As long as the seals are intact you have a real gem.
