A friend has recently shown me a bottle that was handed down to him from his family. He is not a whisky collector, neither is he an amateur, but we are both curious to find out what you guys have to say about this bottle. Pardon the picture quality, this was taken quickly with the bottle on the counter top at his house!
The labels are in surprisingly good condition. There has been about 1.5oz of evaporation from what we can see. Any comments??
