One subject that comes up with "medicinal" whiskey from prohibition is that a lot of it is so woody. It's almost undrinkable. When the government took control of everything, whiskey that the distiller intended to age 4 to 8 years, got aged much longer. I think if you put this on Ebay, it would be be interesting to a collector. I'm thinking medicinal whiskey usually go for $50 to $100? That's just a guess.

This Tea Kettle bourbon/whiskey is a take off from Old Tea Kettle bourbon sold in San Francisco by my great grandfather. He was Shea of Shea, Bocquerax & Mckee. McKee owned the patent to Old Tea Cup bourban til he died in the 1880's.
