Hi, I received this as a gift a couple days ago and was curious about the age. On the front label it has "imported by somerset importers. ltd., new york" in the gold area then "blended scotch whiskey, Johnnie Walker black label 100% scotch, distilled in scotland. blended and bottled by john walker & sons ltd. kilmarnock, scotland. 86.8 proof, 750 millilitres ( 25.4 fl oz.) bottled in scotland" The bottom gold label reads "years 12 old" then under that "john walker and sons ltd. distillers, kilmarnock, scotland" The back has a sticker reading, " distilled and bottled in scotland under british government supervision." It still has the tax stamp on it and the numbers are 039894763 on one side and I-497 on the other. The cap has a pat. no. of 1207487. again, just wondering how old it is and if it has any value.
