i just recived an 75 cl ballantine's bottle of its finest.
The man who gave it to me told me, it should be some 30 or 40 years old.
He's arround 80 years old, his mind is clear like mine (if not more, retired MD doctor) so there's no chance not to belive his words.
Anyway, i tried to determine the age, i like to know what i'm drinking.
the EAN code on the side 5010106111451, the number under the ean code is 3LK127F (maybe production run?)
I googled under those numbers, ean code gave me what i know already, it's ballantines.
howewer ist's strange that ean code from those years is still the same as today?
on the bottom of the bottle there are numbers SD571, and on the box's bottom besides ean code 5010106111536, there's written K 00536 (next line under)45470
The paper box looks worn, so it could be really old, but it could be also just dirty and misstreated.
So, is there any data base, from which the age of the bottle could be found?
I tried to find the appropriate image on the web, looks like this one (besides different volume and without "duty free ****s" on it.
Thanks for your help,
We will see if we can have the bottle that is in the link dated for you.
This bottle's from the early 1980's through to the 90's as the flags on the crest are both blue, if one was red then it would have been from the 1970's.
Hi there, does anybody know if a bottle of Ballantines finest from around the 1969/1970 has any value? Thanks
I doubt that it even has the value of a current standard blend. If you check the past few auctions blended whisky is **** in parcels of at least 3 to 5 different brands and they normally sell for around the £40 to £50 mark.
Drink and enjoy
