Let's assume the whiskey was delicious, and the pilferer enjoyed it to its fullest. I'm actually glad that it ended up being enjoyed by someone rather than in a collector's untouchable cabinet, or as it lies now, shut under the staircase where it will remain "for a very long time."

Are they really trying to value this whiskey at ~ $2K/bottle?

Of course his defense is he was told to help himself and no one limited that to the kitchen.

According to the news report, the caretaker was caught when his DNA was found in the saliva he left on three of the bottles. He really should have wiped the bottles down after he finished them....

Folks keep posting and I keep merging. It's all good.

Since there was an auction house appraisal presumably some of this will find it's way onto the market.

I hope they only had it appraised in order to press charges and assess damage. One of the mansion employees in a news story said the whiskey will remain at the mansion. Let's hope that's the case and that it's treated as a piece of the family history.

and that it's treated as a piece of the family history.

As in the alleged traditional sense of serving everyone who visits a shot at the door?:grin:

There is no family history involved cause they sold the place and if they cared about the whisky it wouldn't have still been there.
