    JW Dant opened his first distillery in 1836 so my guess is a Dant product and with a Louisville address perhaps the J. P. Dant company but that conjecture is based on the scant info on the label as I have no idea of the date of the bottle.

    A similar bottle if offered at the MastersofMalt auction website stating it's from the 1970s but yours has a tax stamp and that one doesn't.

    The one on MoM also has a tax stamp. The one on my bottle only says Export and a number.

    You're right, I didn't catch that the first time. My eyesight ain't what it was though I can still recognize a pretty girl.

    Ah, an export label, come to think of it the bottle does have a 70s look about it. Schenley owned the JW Dant label in the 1970s but I'm still pulling for the JP Dant distillery in Louisville, just cause.
