"Ne Plus Ultra", unopened
Hi all, found a bottle of 12 year old John Dewar & Sons "Ne Plus Ultra" and am wondering if anyone knows more about it - date, value, etc. We found it while cleaning out the liquor cabinet at my parents'.
I've taken a photo but am not able to upload it to the forum - seems attachments have been disabled?
The bottle is similar to cmwiggle's in shape and size (750 ml green glass), but with a red ribbon and "Ne Plus Ultra" Scotch Whisky on the cap.
The label is also slightly different. Mine reads, from top down:
[in small font] "BY APPOINTMENT TO HER MAJESTY THE QUEEN/ SCOTCH WHISKY DISTILLERS/FOURNISSEURS BREVETES ATTITRES DE SA MAJESTE LA REINE/ DISTILLATEURS DE SCOTCH WHISKY/ JOHN DEWAR & SONS. LTD."
[in script] "Ne Plus Ultra"
[and to sides of the script] "12 Ans d'Age" "12 Years Old"
[then below] "SCOTCH WHISKY/DE LUXE"
"John Dewar & Sons Ltd/ Perth Ecosse"
"DISTILLE ET EMBOUTEILLE EN ECOSSE/ DISTILLED AND BOTTLED IN SCOTLAND"
I'm hoping that someone can help me! I'm very curious about this bottle.
