View Full Version : Another White Horse Whiskey Question
09-16-2012, 02:08 AM
Hi Folks ...It seems a popular request recently....I was wondering what the date was of a bottle of White Horse that was given to me by a friend.
The # is AX479385......The value of the bottle would be nice to know so I could tell the guys who are going to drink it with me this week what its worth.
Thanks for your help on this in advance:D

Your label design with the Royal warrant information on the "Left" would
have covered the years from 1937-1953, under King George V.
The Serial Number would indicates it could be closer to 1937 than 1953,
but White Horse "spring-cap" bottles from 1937-1942 did not have the
Gold Foil-capsule, as this material was needed elsewhere for the war effort.
I can't see all of the Tax Stamp entirely, but if it has a "Series" "111"/"112"
in the center (near the eagles feet) it was taxed in the US after 1944/45.
Your bottle will probably fall into a date range of about 1942-1944...
I have many similar bottles like this, and most were sold to me for about
$200-$250....a few I got for less, but not many.

Many Thanks Walter.....
This just came it! The bottle was produced between 1942 and 1951. We have at least one example of this bottle in archive dated to 1945; as mentioned on the whisky.com forum a knowledge of US tax stamps may allow you to narrow the date down further!
