Aged Canadian Club..............

  • 9

So we hosted a surprise 80th birthday party for my father in law this past weekend. As a sign of his gratitude he dropped off this bottle to my office for me. I'm not a C&C drinking but looking at the bottle it looked kind of older to me....so then I looked at the tax stamp/label and it appears this bottle if from 1960?!?!? Lmao.............

That is correct right? I googled Canadian Club 1960 and it seems these bottles go for about $250. does that sound about right? I called him to let him know.........he told me to just keep it. I'm guessing I should just put it an a shelf and continue to let it age?

Thoughts?

  1. Whiskey does not improve with age once it has been bottled. The unopened bottle may be of value to collectors, but not to drinkers!

      Excellent that pretty much cut's to the core of my question. So there is NO motivation to open the bottle for consumption.
      Thanks!

      (Just out of curiosity is the picture of the tax stamp very large and out of place on top of my post? Or is it just me seeing this.)

        Hell NO!! This is now a collectible, I'm not going to open it.

            Indeed; now that you can't sell "bottles" on eBay anymore, where do you go to collect the $250?

              As I said in the OP I googled Canadian Club 1960 and a few links had bottles for sale. I have no idea if they have sold them that's why I asked if that sounds right. $200-$250 was the range.

                They don't? I collect beer cans and picked up a few full cans on ebay a while back...The seller had some sort of disclaimer about the contents

                  Not if the bottles contain liquor. They changed it a while back, unfortunately:
