Re: Value of older Weller 12?

Assuming a 750ml, I’d say $150 is a fair valuation. If it has “raised wheat” embossing on the glass, maybe a bit higher.

I'm not arguing the truth of your statement, but where in the OP did he say anything about the friend or groomsmen being novices? I didn't see a reason to assume he valued a label, since it wasn't one of the stated criteria. I know the groom is far from a Scotch novice, but I can’t speak to the res...

The Bourbon Thread

Alan - it’s a limited release similar to the RR1998 that came out a few years ago. I think retail is around $300-350. If you don’t buy it for yourself, I’d gladly take it at that price.
