Is that a "76" in the bottom right corner? If you're sure the bottle is from the 70's, there's a good chance 1976 is when the bottle was made. Mostly likely it was filled the same year - it's bad business to stockpile empty bottles.

Often on the back of the label (look through the bottle form the rear) is an "L" number on modern bottlings, at least. L76... would confirm a 1976 bottling.

Well, can't help you decipher that code, I'm afraid. I'd feel pretty confident on the 1976 number, though. Maybe 1977 if the bottle happened to be produced late in the year.

Ok thanks very much!

I am not a big whiskey drinker, drink bourbon myself, might just hang on to it.
