Can You Help?

Postby glenesk » Sun Aug 16, 2009 9:08 pm

Thanks very much for your comments on the Connoiseurs Choice Glenesk. I have been given a bottle of Robbie Burns Famed Old Scotch Whisky distilled by R N Thomson & Co and distributed by MacDonald Greenlees Ltd, Edinburgh. Can anyone give me information on when it was distributed, and for how long and has it any value today? Any information would be gratefully received.

Is this Robbie Burns whisky a mix of scotch and Canadian whisky? I had one of those before.
