Default The Whisky God has smiled....

Cleaning out the attic in my parents house and found this!

Now the tough decision - open and explore, or sell it as is! Does anyone have some knowledge of its value? Or even how old it is?

Hey- it's "whisky", leave out the "e!" I'd open it and see what's in it! Might give you an idea of age.

Nice find, Francis. Even if you sell it, you HAVE to save at least one bottle for yourself to drink.

I would try going to Glenlivet and seeing if they know anything. I would love to have found that. Or perhaps there's some whisky forums that you can look at? There's definitely whisky collectors out there.
