Hello, Maggio. This kind of question comes up here fairly regularly, and unfortunately we don't seem to have any professional appraisers hanging around. Even if someone did happen to have an idea about your particular bottle, they'd need to know more about it--who bottled it, when it was bottled, how you came by it, etc. Someone might be able to give you an idea of how to go about finding out, but it's rarely as simple as "This bottle is worth x". Good luck.

Thanks for your suggest MrTattieHeid. All I can say about this bottle is what I can read on the label..... so.... Mortlach distilled 1947 - 70° proof - Proprietors George Cowie & Son Ltd. (Mortlach Glenlivet Distillery - Dufftown) - Bonded and Bottled by: Gordon & Macphail, Elgin. That's all.

Gordon & Macphail (G&M) is pretty well know for their old Mortlachs and Stratishla. Could you precise how the label looks like?
I would not be surprised if it is a 47 or 50 years old Mortlach that you can still find in some shops, because their price was somewhat excessive.

Well, the label looks similar to the mortlach 1936'one (see http://www.thewhiskyexchange.com/acatal ... CUR_2f2519 ) except for the colours. It has a light brown frame with a lighter one background, and in the center of the label a dark blue square. The shape of the glass is the same.
Thanks
