What to do with a 50 year old bottle of Scotch?

About 20 years ago someone gave me a bottle of scotch that was 40 years old.

It has been in the little bottle for 40 years.

It is a 1980's vintage Glenrothes.

I want to make some vanilla out of part of it, as I think it would be really good for that.

Anyone ever done that?

I know people are going to cry about using a $300-600 bottle of scotch for such a strange idea.

If it is a 40 year old bottle of single malt Glenrothes, then it's worth $4,100 (or more) a bottle. Doesn't matter how long you have had it as long as it has the original seal.

If all that is true, it would be best to sell it, buy a bottle of vanilla and pocket the remaining $4,098.23.

Or you could give it to me and I will send you 10 bottles of the finest vanilla extract on the planet.

BTW - What you are suggesting is like taking a Lamborghini Aventador and hooking up a Bush Hog behind it to cut your lawn. shame

Where are you getting these prices?

I just looked at it, I thought it was bottled in 91, I was mistaken.

Here is the gouge on it:

It was distilled in 1989 and bottled in 2002, making it 31.

I just found this

https://www.whiskybase.com/whi...4951/glenrothes-1989

Do you reckon that it is worth $300-600?


It's only worth what someone will pay for it.

I think shipping is the problem, you have to have some kind of license to ship alcohol, and to receive it.

I found some outfits that buy alcohol and are all in the UK.

Scotch whiskey like most spirits isn't aged in the bottle. A whiskey that was distilled in 1989 and bottled in 2002 is considered to be a 12 to 14 year old bottle of whiskey.

A bottle that was distilled in 1960 and bottled in 2000 would be a 40 year old whiskey and correspondingly expensive and rare.

Guys, I am in the middle of a very delicate negotiation here and you're not helping with comments like "just drink it".


Cool

Eh, I looked at it a couple of days ago. Still has the label intact.

I have zero reason to go to DSC, SCI, Sheep or any other convention with no outfitters at it.

If I kill an elk on the 2nd to last week of October, I am going to open it when I get home.

I had planned on having some when I retired from the military, but it didn't happen as me and the bottle were seperated by about 10,000 miles.

2020 has been a good year for me. New job (and a substantial promotion), killed a nice free range Aoudad in West Texas, and hopefully I can close out the year with this bull elk in the gila.
