Beverages/Wiser's Oldest Canadian Whisky 1959


I have a bottle of Wiser's Oldest Canadian Whisky distilled in 1959. Can you estimate the value of this bottle?

Hi Bret

Distilled spirits like this are so high in alcohol that they don't change much, for better or for worse, over time. The good news is that this should be fine to drink.  The bad news is that it won't have appreciated in value the way some fine wines do.

It's worth about as much as a current bottle of decent Scotch is worth...but probably not more than $50.

Sorry that I don't hwve more exciting news for you.
