Bell's Royal Reserve - 1950's? PICS POSTED any help appreciated
I've been reading all of the generous assistance you and some experts offer to people on your website who are unfamiliar with the craft and/or novices, and that would definitely include me.
My Father's sister passed away in the 80's and left him with a bunch of decorative decanters of different whiskeys & bourbons.
The only one of real interest and/or value would appear to the bottle of Bell's.
None of us in the family are drinkers to speak of and no one drinks scotch, whiskey, or bourbon so if this bottle is of value i will sell it and split the proceeds with my Dad.
I've done some research on line and also checked out Ebay...both the USA & UK versions.
This bottle appears to be most likely from the 1950's....BUT with my limited knowledge, it might also be 40's or 60's.....i've seen a couple of pics of Royal Reserve bottles from the 30's and this is NOT that old.
Could you help me find an approximate date for blending/bottling?
The bottle is unopened but much of the tax stamp is gone....there remain only small pieces on both sides and the top.
The bottom of the bottle appears to have "S631" on the upper part and "UG8" on the bottom.
I have taken pictures of all sides and what's left of the tax stamps and will gladly try to post them...if i can figure it out.
thank you in advance for your help.
