Re: Old Bottle of Rum

mr.mike, I'm not sure if you are following this post any longer, but your bottle dates to about 1945-46...well before the company was 'Nationalized' by Fidel Castro in 1960. The brand of rum usually had a foil capsule made of 'soft lead', but between 1941-1945 this material was in high demand for mu...

Re: White Horse Blended Scotch Whisky

Melman,

This is a mid-1960s bottling you have there, looks to be either a full or 4/5 pint size... Current value on this is about $50-$60 USD.

Cheers,

Re: White Horse Blended Scotch Whiskey

ASP, Jardine Matheson & Co. has been the exclusive importer of White Horse since the very early 1900's, and your mention of the Serial # (EA 5106787) is only part of the information needed to accurately date your bottle for you... The other pieces of information we would need to see relate to th...

Re: White Label Dewars - with Cork

Malkirn, You might be right on the 'post-1953' dating, as Queen Elizabeth II gave Dewar's her Royal Warrant in Aug 1955. However, on the "really rare" side of things, I note that you mentioned that this is "with Cork"...Nearly all of the 1955 and later bottles of Dewar's White La...

American_mike, I can certainly help you with this bottle, but would need to see a few clear photos of this to begin the research with: I have several JA Dougherty Pints bearing various labels in my collection, but none with a "Governors Club" label on them. I sent you a PM on this subject ...

Re: Mackies Ancient Brand

Wow - They sound a little "over-eager" on the bidding they hope to obtain for your bottle, I mean they aren't exactly Christie's or Bonhams ! Their only sale on one of these with the box, only took in £1,850.00 (2/3 what they quoted you)...roughly $2100 USD https://www.whisky-onlineauction...

Re: I.W. Harper

Your bottle dates to between 1977-1983! This is known by the Tax Stamp markings: In 1977, the US Govt removed the weight markings from the ends of the Taz Stamps, due to a revision of the legal weight standard in the US. In 1983, the Red Federal Tax Stamp was discontinued from use in the US. Cheers,...
