I know this is an old thread but I am still hoping that someone can help me date this bottle.
I had given this bottle to my father about 9 years ago after finding it in my father-In laws condo after he passed away. The bottle was in the bag but there was no box. This was just a bottle of scotch to me & I hadn't yet developed a taste for it. Over thanksgiving my father brought the bottle out & explained what it was. He had just recently learned that this was a bottle of Chivas 21 Royal Salute.
Now, I would like to figure out how old this bottle actually is. Is this bottle porcelain or the ceramic variety? You will also notice that there is no 21 embossed on the label either. I have seen pictures of other bottles from the 1976 range with the 21. Was there a time when the 21 didn't appear on the label?
The bottle is still unopened but unfortunately some of the scotch must have evaporated over the years because the bottle feels a little light.
Also if this bottle is rarer that the average bottle what is it worth?
