J. H. & J. Brooke and (Tesco)J & A Mitchell Whisky questions

Postby Bobbie » Sat Nov 22, 2008 2:45 pm

Hello all.

I have a couple of question regarding a few bottles i have at home. My google-fu has failed me so I turn to you for help. I'm afraid my camera is refusing to speak to my computer, so I can only describe each bottle.

The first is a standard size and shape of bottle, it bears the royal warrant of Queen Elizabeth II (I've already checked the warrant holders site, no luck), beneath that is J. H. + J. Brooke (it is printed in the style of handwriting). Then...

VERY FINE OLD
SCOTCH WHISKY
J. H. & J. BROOKE, Limited
ESTABLISHED 1799
134, SANDGATE ROAD, FOLKSTONE and at LONDON & HYTHE

At the top corners of the label it says 'No. 5'. Bottom left '70 proof'. Bottom right 'produce of Scotland'

The other is a squat bottle with a red wax seal embossed 'T'. the label says...

TESCO
TRADITIONAL
CAMPBELTOWN
MALT WHISKY
The 1972 Tesco Campbeltown Malt Whisky
is a deep amber colour, with a powerful, complex nose
that's full of evocative smokey, salty aromas
and a full, lasting flavour that lingers and warms.

PRODUCE OF SCOTLAND
Distilled by
J & A Mitchell & Co Ltd

Bottom left of label '70Cl', bottom right '46% vol'. Label shows a black watercolour of a cross monument with fileds/hills in the background.

The back label says nothing more other than a unique bottle number 3263.

That's all I can tell you I'm afraid. Any insight (or even guesses) at all would be gratefully recieved.

Ta very muckle

Bobbie.

I appreciate this is 6 years after your post, but do you still have the JH&J Brooke bottle?!
