Wine/1918extra amontillado sherry


is it worth anything and if it is how much. it says its from spain 150ml bottle 20% alc volum

Not much is your answer. Amontillado sherry can be quite tasty but the 1918 on the label doesn't mean it's old. Sherry is aged in what's called a solera system where new wine is continually added to rows of barrels as the aging wine is drained off and bottled so a solera started in 1918 will have very little of the oldest wine when it's bottled but it will have the complex mix of all the wines that have been added to the  solera barrels. A bottle like your (you say 150 ml which is very tiny, do you mean 750ml?) might sell for $25-35 and is not rare. However,  It is very much worth enjoying.

I can answer most any question about wine- types, styles, grape varieties, regions, vintages, proper storage, production, wine and food pairing, wine service, decanting, proper glassware, serving temperatures etc. Regarding questions about specific bottles of wine, since I live in the U.S. my focus is on wines imported here. I can't answer questions about spirits and liquor valuations.
