Johnnie Red Label Gallon, How old?

Postby kiwirevo » Mon Jun 13, 2011 9:35 am

Hi, Just wanted to know if anyone could tell me how old this bottle is based on the packaging?
And also any idea what it would be worth?

Well I bought it without knowing anything else and now have better photos.
It's a New Zealand bottling, has a built in pourer, is 42.3%abv and it has a stamped on number behind the main label that either says 81168 (which could me 8th Nov 1968 or 11th August 1968) or 89118 (not sure what that would mean)
Does anyone know any history on this bottle?

Interested in info on my 48 yr old bottle of Johnnie Walker Red Label. It was purchased at the Class 6 on RAF Bentwaters for my wedding on 5 Oct 1963. It has printed on the label: FOR U.S. AIR FORCE-NOT FOR RESALE. (see attachment). It has been moved from England to Massachusetts and then to Arizona where it resides in my cabinet. Bottle is like new condition and stored in a sleeve. Labels (3), sealed cap, and bottle are perfect! What would you recommend that I do with it?

Hi Quin17, it may have been for the right price but I'm opening tomorrow for my bachelor party.

I just wanted to report that the whisky is fantastic. It's a little harsh but more flavourful than current Black label. Great for sipping.
