From memory it was launched in the V&A Museum in London around 1997 and there should be a book giving details as part of the package. I understand that the whisky was a mix of about 40 single malts up to 35 or 40 years old blended with younger grain whiskies.

It's been relaunched in a different pack in the past year or 2

I've done a little checking and from what I've discovered it's a blend of malts and grains from 12 year old up to 30+. The decanter was only sold for a couple of years around Japan and China so it might have a little more value than the current face value but I don't think there's much of a premium.
Here's what I found out...
