    I found this very old Scotch Bottle in my inlaws home while cleaning it out. Does anyone have any information on this and is it a "true" collectible? It is a neat bottle I can't figure out what year it was made in. It says that is is 12 years old on the top of the bottle but would like to know its actual age. Thanks...Laura

      Looks like 1950s or 1960s. It's rare to see single malts bottled for the US market in those days. The US scotch market back then was almost exclusively blended whiskies. The label says "established 1798" and "produced at this distillery for over 150 years", which gives you a date of 1948 at the earliest so most likely 1950s. If the bottle has an embossed statement in the glass that reads "federal law forbids sale or re-use of this bottle" then you can assume it dates to between 1948-1964. If it does not have that embossed warning then it is after 1964.
