I also recommend to open it.
I didn't drink this particular expression so far but there are wonderful oloroso matured Bunnahabhains from the 76 vintage.
In my opinion this bottle has not a big potential to increase its worth, as Bunnahabhain is mabe the least known and hyped of the Islay distilleries and this one is from an independent bottler not even an OB.
So what's the matter in collecting it?
If it's really good, you can still buy another one to collect it. :D

If the bunny is one of your better bottles I'd save it for when your child is born. My bottle of Springbank 16 rum wood is my most expensive bottle (a lot less than your bunny) and I'm saving that for when our child is born or when I turn 35, whichever comes first. Or try it now, and have an excuse to buy another nice bottle for when the wee one arrives. :D
