Is this an item which would be expected to increase in value over time?
I'd offer that the barrel itself might not necessarily
increase in value anytime in the near future. It looks
to be signed by the current MD (Jeff Arnett) who
took over in April 2008 so there's probably quite a
few more barrels to come with his signature.
The bottle with the tag is a nice addition but again,
may be limited in its value unless you were to find a
JD collector looking to add that specific bottling to
his stash (though with the recent bottle redesign
in March 2009, the bottle may rise in value quicker
than the barrel!)
