It's a Cadenhead's bottling at cask strength of 58.8% and is described as a "13 years" old. It was distilled way back in October 1983 and bottled in September 1997.
Interestingly, the bottle is 75cl (not the usual UK 70cl) and states that it was "Imported by Preiss Imports...Whittier. CA". It also carries a fairly lengthy "Government Warning".
Could this be a bottling for the Canadian market, which maybe didn't sell and so was returned to Cadenhead's in Edinburgh ?
And is it worth hanging onto ?

Given what Wave's said, I'm really tempted to open it. But when am I going to see another bottle of "Millburn" ?
I've bought two Millburns in the last couple of years, granted both are twice the age of that 13yo (Cadenhead & Signatory) but it's still around just not as prolific as Brora's and PE's seem to be.
As for Priess they used to import Cadenheads in to the states but I think Cadenheads are now only selling whisky into there franchised shops.
As for Millburn usually is a decent dram of the few that I have had.
