30 year Irish single malt whiskey put down in 1949

I'll try this here.

When one moves to a new home one always uncovers 'stuff' one had long forgotten. In this case it is an unopened bottle of Knappogue Castle unblended pot still pure malt Irish Whiskey that I bought at the Castle during a visit to Ireland in 1983. According to the label's hand-written date it was put down in 1949 and in the wood until bottling in 1981. This is bottle No 143 of cask No. 6. It has a screw-type cap that is unopened and intact and has had some evaporation so that the whiskey level is about an inch below the neck of the bottle. Any notions of present value of a whiskey that began its journey two-thirds of a century ago?

I found one online that sold for GBP625. I would have thought it would be more valuable than that, though. Don't know when the auction was, or if in a room with physical people you would get more.

Seems a well respected brand, shame the distillery closed in 1954.

Some go in the thousands: https://www.thewhiskyexchange.com/Vintage-1949.aspx

Personally, having tasted at great expense some at specialty bars, I find them no more enthralling than some of their lesser brothers either in terms of age or cost.

Hope you find a use for it.

really depends on what it is. if it sucked then, it still sucks. Might contact an auction house that handles spirits.
