Curious as to any answers you've gotten. A friend showed me a bottle a few days ago that he's had since the mid 50s. It's a light brown ceramic jug jug in a green plaid box labeled as 22 year old blended scotch. A cement contractor in central New Jersey, USA, bought pallets of Red Hackle blended scotch in the 50s to give as gifts.

I have a wooden box labeled "Black & White" Blended Scotch Whisky, James Buchanan & Co., Ltd, Glasgow, Scotland. On one end of the box it's labeled "The Fleischmann Distilling Group, 519 California Street, San Francisco, CA Permit 14-I-225". The back of the crate is labeled "12 4/5 quarts containing 2-40 Galls. 12 Bottles bearing stamps of 4/5 qts of denomination" The slats are nailed closed and there is a wire around the crate. This has been in my house for approximately thirty years, in a cool dark closet. What is the value of this?

Your EagleRare bottles and boxes may be worth a little more than what they sold for before they changed the look of the bottle. The current Eagle Rare sells for $25 a bottle. They aren't really collectors items but a gift boxed bottle. There are several types of whiskey that come packaged in some sort of special box such as Booker's or others.
If you're interested in selling them, please contact me. [email protected]

I recently received a bottle of 12 year old Pinch by Haig and Haig still sealed and bottled in 1989 and a bottle of 12 year old Chivas bottled in 1991 from my father-in-law. I do not intend on selling these but out of curiosity I was wondering if someone could tell me what they are worth. Both have never been opened and come in original packaging. Thank you.
