What would such a bottle be worth, now, and say in 25 years?
Getting a bit bitten by the collector's virus, I bought me a bottle of 1989 11yr Springbank, Signatory Unchillfiltered 225/345 as well a while ago. Are these Signatory bottlings any worth as a collectors item?
Thanks for helping out this starting whisky collector
It obviously helps if the bottle is rare. As far as your Glengoyne 1971 is concerned, I wouldn't call 1 of 2100 rare - but, who knows? Maybe all the others will be opened and in 25 years's time, yours will be the only one left intact, worth a king's ransom.
A safe bet, if you're really wealthy, is to buy all, yes, all the bottles of a series.
And, yes, such collectors do exist.
If you're really into collecting whisky, try not to miss the collectors' column in WM.
I understand your point on prices, I was merely wondering, since this bottle costed me roughly 150$ at the distillery already, so it's sure more then your average malt. SO I assume this is not your regular buy and drink malt, and more meant as a collectors item.
In that regard the Signatory might be more interesting to keep i guess, since its a much more limited bottling.
