I ran across this thread by accident. It is an old one but I have to say that I could not believe my eyes when I read all of your comments. This is the reason why.
i live in California and as such we have a chain of stores here known as Trader Joe's. Nowadays TJ's can be found in many other states throughout the USA, but for us TJ's has been around for some time. I bring this up for this reason; the House of Lords blended scotch whiskey Chivas bottling, was available at TJ's in the 80's for the paltry some of $3.99 (I used to by it by the case for under $50.00). It was a great high quality Scotch that was actually superior to Chivas. I once did a blind tasting with some of my Scotch drinking friends and they thought that the Chivas was the lessor of the two. For those affectionados that refused to drink anything else, I used to pour it into a Chivas bottle and serve it with no one ever being the wiser.
So, as for what a bottle of that wonder would be worth today? WTFK, but I wish it was still made. Good times that!
