Hey there! I would really appreciate it if you could help me date this bottle of Haig and Haig Five Star.

I'm leaning towards simply drinking it, but if it's really old it might be worth hanging on to.
If you'd prefer, I can look it up if you could please tell me where to look.
We'll see if we can have your bottle dated for you. :) Thanks for links to images.
Using the photographs you provided, the Diageo Archive Department attempted to date the bottle. They did not appear to have examples of this exact bottle in either their bottle collection or in the historic advertisement collection. This means they could not narrow down the date as much as they would have liked - however -they have enough similar bottles and the bottle itself still has enough noticeable features for them to believe quite strongly that it is from the 1960s. :)
I acquired a Haig & Haig Five Star from my wife's grandfather's estate. He wasn't a drinker but kept this around for years. Must have been a gift given to him. I'm not a big whisky drinker but i'll keep this around and open it unless it makes sense to hold it as a collectors item or sell it. Three photos posted below. I also included 3 photos of a Seagrams V.O. aged 6 years from 1986 in case anyone happens to know the deal with that too. Thanks in advance for any assistance.
