Hi, I am not an appraiser of whisky but I do look for past auction prices and current retail values of older bottlings and vintages in shops worldwide to stay abreast of prices to give myself a benchmark in the event I find a bottle that interests me. For your bottling I have found only one bottling of the exact vintage distillation and bottling date. It was an auctioned bottle that **** for GBP 103.00 in 2007. I assume your bottle has the CREAM COLORED MAP LABEL
. The G & M DARK BROWN and CREAM COLORED BANNER LABEL
bottlings with CONNOISSEURS CHOICE
printed on the banner usually command a higher price as this packaging label is rarer than others in the Connoisseurs Choice
