help with age of Johnnie Walker bottle, plz

Postby jwblesosw » Sun Jun 10, 2012 3:17 pm

I have got a unopened black label JW bottle and box, I have being trying to id the age all day, the bottle reads extra special old scotch whisky (Kilmarnock) appointment to her majesty the queen.
And the its measured in imperial "NET 1 PINT 6 FLUID OUNCES" ( I live in aust BTW ) so I was thinking it would have to be pre 30s before we went to metric? And on the back the diamond sticker reads "distilled and bottled in Scotland under British government supervision"
Now for the glasswork writing and numbers (BACK) JOHNNIE WALKER THIS BOTTLE ALWAYS REMAINS THE PROPERTY OF JOHNNIE WALKER & SONS LTD.
(BOTTOM) Now this is where becomes bit hard being handmade and really hard to read.

I would have said from the 1950's or 60's looking at the bottle and packaging

It's very difficult to be precise as to age of this bottling, any time from the mid 50's, as per the royal warrant, to the 1980 when capacities on bottle labels start to be expressed metrically. However, I with would agree with whiskyhibby that the bottle and packaging design would place in a period of between the mid 50's to late60's.

Cheers John
