Hi,

Just looking for some advice.

Following a mix up I had ordering a bottle of the Craftsman Reserve, and thanks to some fantastic customer service c/o Sam Simmons and David Stewart of The Balvenie, I have a 20cl sample from a 1989 sherry cask (bottled in 2007).

I've emails from Simmons and a handsigned letter from Stewart to support its authenticity.

In terms of rarity, I'm pretty sure there aren't many (any?) of these samples in circulation.

I'm a drinker rather than collector, but what is the view from those of you in the know in terms of the collectability of this?

Pic attached.

Many thanks in advance.

There doesnt look like there is a seal on the sample bottle so it may be difficult to sell. I say drink it and enjoy.

Thanks for the reply.

You're right, it arrived unsealed.

It seems drinking it is the way forward... As if I was ever going to be able to resist!
