This weekend a friend gave me a bottle of Old Weller - The Original 107 Proof Kentucky Bourbon. Her father passed away a few years ago and this bottle was from his collection. The copyright date on the bottle is 1970, but from the limited information I found online - it looks like it was probably bottled in 1976. The bottle has squiggly thin gold lines and the number V - 266 on it. It also came with a red velvet bag with gold closure ties.

I really enjoy a good whiskey and I'm wondering if anyone can tell me if this is a good whiskey and what it might be worth. Should I save it, or should I drink it?



P.S. - I made a mistake in the title of my post, I meant to write 1976 Old Weller... not 1997.
