Default Bottle of rum, bottle of rum

I recently came into possession of a bottle of vintage rum. It's cuban, year 1915, in perfect condition inside and out. The label reads 'Ron superior - preparado por M. Negreir a S. en M. - Habana'. On the Back a little sticker reads 'Fabricado por la comp. licorera de Cuba, S.A.'.

Does anybody know what such a bottle might be worth? If it's not worth much I'm anxious to start drinking it..

Thanx, Query

Default M. Negreira 1915

I also found a bottle of rum described above. IS there any value to a collector.
Is it drinkable? 1915?

I second Forrest, definitely keep us posted if you tap it. I have a few bottles of Jamaican from the early 1940s...never became that curious.. Just think, even if it is a bit acidic, perhaps you can be the first to make an pre-prohibition rum vinagerette salad dressing with it
