    Re: Old Taylor - how old?

    Odd packaging, but I'm going to guess 1960s. One clue is the reduced proof. It's also possible it was made for export.

    Best guess, from the proof, bottle shape, standard measures (ounces) and closure type, you've got a bottle dating from the mid-'60s to the late-'70s.
    There's a mini (#2) just like it here:

    Re: Old Taylor - how old?

    Yes, the bottle is Export stamped and in Australia.
    Very interesting to find out the bottle might be from the 60s.

    Many thanks to you both, Cowdery and TNbourbon.

    Please warn me if it is worth a bit,
    I'm thinking of opening it for my first home house-warming party


    Peace.

    You're looking at eBay. You know what people pay for that stuff. Drink it.

    He means, it's not worth all that much over a standard bottle of today's bourbon.

    More than a few of us here already have some stashed away. Seriously, go ahead and enjoy it yourself. It's good bourbon.
