Would this be of interest to a collector?
Thank you ......... Norm
The bourbons are the same except for the proof, according to Ken Weber of Buffalo Trace, which now owns the brand. However, your older tax-stamped bottling would have come from the Stitzel-Weller distillery, which has been mothballed since 1992 because of asbestos-related issues. It produced, quite simply, the finest wheat-flavored bourbon since Prohibition. So, if you enjoy fine bourbon, open it.
As to collector value, there is a limited, small market for old bourbons, which were produced in industrial-sized production runs, so are seldom rare, even in older editions, unless an unusual or special bottling. The most accurate statement would be that it is worth what someone is willing to pay you. And that will vary, depending on who happens to be aware of your sale. Try Ebay, if you wish to sell.
Yes, the label does state Distilled and Bottled by:Stitzel-Weller Distillery. I am really more of a Scotch drinker but I am tempted to open it to savor a good Bourbon which would be a new experience for me.
By the way, the label states it is 107 Proof. The top is completly sealed with the Internal Revenue red strip. There must have been some evaporation as the bourbon is is about an inch below the bottom of the neck of the bottle.
It sure looks tempting !!!
I realy appreciate your comment and wish you well. Regards Norm.
