Hi

If there is no date on the label, the design of the label might tell you (roughly) when the whisky was bottled. Text on the label (such as proprietor names) can also be useful in dating. Can you post some pictures of the bottles somewhere? That way people on this forum might be able to give you a clue ....

As to valuation, you could try contacting Martin Green at McTear's (http://www.whiskybids.com).

Hope this helps (a wee bit)
