Like all items (baseball cards as a prime example), it is worth what someone is willing to pay for it. If you wish to determine a value for, say insurance purposes, place it on E-bay with a reserve that is so high that you would part with it (i.e. $5000) and see what the market has to say.
As for storage, unlike wine, these corks should not touch the liquid. Store it upright.

I would think a board like this is exactly the place for such a question. Perhaps asked in a different way.

I wanted to ensure I was not about to open the equivalent of a Chateau Lafite Rothschild.
I enjoy a good bourbon but had never given it much thought. Having come across this bottle from years ago I thought it worth checking. An innocent inquiry not intended to touch an obviously sensitive nerve.
I look forward to enjoying this the way it was intended: neat.

I am active on a number of tech boards and have little tolerance for people who attack new posters for not knowing their "etiquette". If you don't like a question, don't respond. The only thing a nasty response accomplishes is keeping a post active an in view.
