Old Bottle of Madeira

November 8, 2012
Question by: Paul, Mobile


I have a bottle of Walsh Brothers 1880 Boal Reserve Madeira given to my parents in the 1940's. I am in a quandary whether to open it up for a very special occasion or try to sell it to an interested collector. Any thoughts? Do you know it's estimated value?  I know this is not Port but hope you can give me some insight.

I am looking for wine from Madeira, similar character like Port wines (aprox. Alc 19% and I know that some wineries add salt and pepper).  I am looking forward to your answer.
