Very old whiskey find

Postby Mnuke33 » Sun Jun 11, 2017 7:52 pm

Hi guys, I have stumbled across what looks to be like a very old bottle of whiskey, this bottle came from an old pub in Ireland. Can anyone help me with what it might be worth

Great find. What does the capsule look like? Is the seal intact?

Well the fact it has green glass may well mean it is not as old as you may think so not very very old ;-) .

These labels were in use up to the 60's and the fact it is from a pub would explain the old stained look. Tobacco smoke etc

However very hard to gauge by the picture you have submitted as we'd need to see the whole bottle.

It does look bigger than a normal bottle though which could add value but may just be the picture.

Does it still have the contents? An empty bottle will not be worth much unfortunately.
