QUESTION: Hi Ralph, I have an unopened bottle of 1934 Dom Benedictine, I would like to know if it is of any value and if it would still be drinkable many thanks.

ANSWER: Hi David:

If the seal is un-cracked...go for it.

I know of many a rare bottle of wine that came up vinegar after a bit.

This on the other hand is an herbal liqueur.

It should be just fine!

QUESTION: Thank you ralph, do you know if it is of any value?

Hi David:

With regard to value...I can only say that if it is not a "collectable" (which is out of my pay grade) it is worth the same as a new bottle found on the shelves now.

There are sites that help value "antique" liquor but that is not within my area.

Whiskey, or Whisky only please. Any questions regarding the distilling and consuming of Whiskey: rye, bourbon, or scotch. Wines and Brandy are out of my area. I can not value old bottles of whiskey. But generally, if you can find something similar on sale today, and your bottle seal is unbroken, that would be the current value.
