Any info would be appreciated.
Dottie - since you're in Michigan as am I - if its the one I'm thinking of its a Balvenie from atleast 15-20 years ago that was offered in the state and it was a 12yr old and is no longer offered.
I sold two on Ebay over two years ago and had no trouble getting $150 which is a bit on the low side. I think the state price was about $30-35 when Michigan carried them.
I did some additional checking and the one I'm referring to had the words 'Classic' on the label.
Long slender neck and the shape of the lower part of the bottle I think the Germans would describe as a 'bocksteuble'[forgive my attempts at the correct spelling].
