There was someone on here with similar whiskey not so long ago. I think in the current market, they could reach about â‚¬150 to â‚¬200, but probably nearer the lower value.
The last person had a case, but I think they became a little hard to sell just as the recession bit...

I have a bottle of jameson10 very special old whiskey matured for not less than 15 years ,its a 26 2/3 fl ozs and blended vatted and bottled by williams-egan ltd tullamore 70% proof and in its box . on the bottom of the bottle are the numbers 1363 and 75 . does anyone know its age or possibly its value?
Can you post a picture ...? I'm guessing it is Crested Ten by Jameson.
If that is the case it is worth as Aidan says about 150Euro on Ebay.
If your interested in selling let me know I know some one who would like to take if off your hands but probably only at the above values.
If you get better offers jump at them though.
I doubt if it specifically led to Crested 10 though. I heard somewhere from someone who heard from someone somewhere that the idea behind Crested 10 was not an age statement thing but more an adopted notion of packaging whiskies with a Cognac type badge engineering. And if I'm not mistaken which I often am, Crested Ten was the first true Jameson Distillery bottling in the sense that, as opposed to bottles being bottled from supplied casks and possibly adulterated, the idea here was that the Crested Ten monicker was a gaurantee that the contents were bottled and sealed at the distillery. A Gaurantee that no middle man was involved. Akin to Powers gold Label versus Powers White Label. But it's not an area I know much about and the whole history of bottling intrigues me. I'm astonished that it's such a recent trend.
MAybe smeone can bring clarity to my hazy understanding?

It's kind of like an age statement, although it's not an age statement
Ah yes, masters of marketing
Maybe the Irish Whiskey industry should celebrate and make a virtue out of it's oftimes mysterious appraoch to labelling!

Like the Jameson Vintage ... which contains some of the oldest whiskies available in Midleton (as well as some others )
But in all fairness it is a piece of class though
So should we be bothered about the age statements of such a wonderful whiskey?
In terms of value I'd agree with earlier sentiments about â‚¬150<â‚¬200.
Hope that helps!
