Since it was bottled in the same year as I graduated from high school, I would offer you 100 for it, if it is in pristine condition. Let me know.
Bourbon Joe wrote:It is valuable because it is rare. Also, the whiskey inside is very good. Most bourbon enthusiasts who really know and understand bourbons, consider this a very good bottle to DRINK. True enthusiasts probably would not offer you as much as I did because most have had it before or presently own it. E-Bay was a horrible place for bourbon geeks because of the ridiculous prices the un-informed or the rich would pay just kept the prices going higher without any reason, other than greed. That's all I will say about this subject. Good luck with your bottle. My offer just went down to $200.00.

The master distiller such as Ed Foote would have made the whiskey. The Stitzel-Weller whiskies are all but forgoten today. The Van Winkle family owns the brands and todays Pappies are no longer S-W's. They are Bernheims. As such, especially to me, they have lost their ability to fetch high prices back when and I no longer chase them. I have two bottles of what you have and purchased them for 175 and 200 off E-Bay when things were somewhat sane and managable. I drink mine from time to time. I really enjoy it. Sorry to come off so upity but we here do not like people who gouge people on E-Bay. But that's over with. Enjoy your day.
