Debbie - we can have your bottle dated, but will need photos. Please post your pix and be sure to include a close up of the label (so we can read it) as well as one of the closure. As for the "152" you're seeing, it's not aged 152 years, it's legend that Old Parr was Britain's oldest man living up to the (very) ripe old age of 152. And....apparently got married for the second time at the age of 122!
However, some say his records were confused with his grandfather's, but regardless, the legend lives on....
Regarding the value, once the age is determined, you can check past auctions at McTears.com - or have them or Bonhams.com determine a value (a small fee may be involved). If you're in the US, contact Park Avenue Liquors (212-685-2442) or the Brandy Library (212-226-5545) - both do valuations.
