I have in my possession a bottle of MaCallum's Perfection Scots Whisky this bottle (unopened) has been in my family for 40 years, a present given to my late father.
I am unable to find anyone to give me a valuation for the bottle, is it possible you could do this for me?
I also have a bottle of Dimple with gold wire on it would you also know the value of this one? Your help would be most appreciated on this matter.

Your bottle of Mcallum's Perfection is a blended whisky from the 1970s prouced by D & J McCallum Limited, 4 Picardy Place, Edinburgh, a subsidiary of Distillers Company PLC. Now known as Diegeo PLC.
This blend was very popular in Australia were the company had a branch office in Sydney.

I would suggest you keep your bottles for a few more years to see if they go up in value or open them and enjoy the dram.
