If you have time I also have a bottle of George T. Stagg, Uncut/ Unfiltered. 71.35% ALC BY VOL. 142.7 PROOF
Both are sealed and in perfect condition..
Thank you for your time and help, it is much appreciated.
John - we know you already have this info, but for those curious about your Jack Daniel's, here's what we were told by the Jack Daniel's Distillery:
Yes, signature adds more to the price. However, that price is determined by the buyer. Normally it adds 2 times the price. The Barrel House 1994 that we have seen sale for around $300 and the bottle was signed. Keep in mind that the Distillery only puts the original sale price on the bottle. A collector's price will be more. If you ask the old-timers here, Warehouse #1 is the best maturing warehouse at Jack Daniel. That warehouse sits at a premium location on the hillside to give the whiskey the perfect flavor. So, all of the Barrel House #1 bottles were filled from whiskey out of that barrel house. The whiskey was bottled at 94 proof because it was bottled in 1994. There was a later production of bottles in 1999.
