Hello, newbie here, I have a few old bottles that I was hoping someone could answer some questions about.
The first is a 1954 Crown Royal 4/5 Quart, labeled as being from the Waterloo distillery. It is still sealed and has never been opened.
I guess I have a couple questions regarding this bottle, first, is there an approximate value? Second question is, since this is from the Waterloo distillery, is it the same whisky that is being **** today as Crown Royal XR? And I last question, would it be worth drinking, saving or *******? I very much enjoy Canadian whisky, but don't know how different the flavor profile is between the Waterloo Distillery and what is there today.
My second bottle is a 1947 Canadian Club 4/5 Quart, still sealed and never opened. My main question for this bottle, is does it have a cork or a screw cap? There has been some evaporation, but I don't know if it's due to the cap being loose or the cork drying and shrinking. Again, is there an approximate value, and would it be worth drinking, saving or *******? If I decide to save it, is there a way to prevent future evaporation without breaking the seals?
My third bottle is a 1968 BEAM 100 MONTHS OLD Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey in a sealed, never opened Regal China bottle that is in the shape of the old Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs, CO commemorating the hotel's 50th Anniversary. My questions on this bottle, is again, any approximate value, is it even safe to drink, and would it be worth drinking, saving or *******, I'm not that much of a Kentucky Straight Bourbon fan, so I may be fine not drinking this one anyway.
Any feed back is appreciated. Thx!
