I have a bottle of White Horse blended whisky that was given to my friend by his grandparent as a wedding gift in 1965. As he states, the bottle entered Argentina in 1892.
Its serial number is 273551.
I am looking for its value.
Thank you.

Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but White Horse bottle did not have a Registrationi # in the 1800's.

The serial number could be from the 1930-1950s...I would need to see photos of the ftont label & top-area to be sure. I can date the bottle for you if you wish!

Cheers,
Walter C Hurst

Hein-Jan,

Judging from the label design, this bottle was produced in the early 1980's: The White Horse sign [logo] was first 'centered' on the label in 1970, but the metric weight markings would indicate a production sometime after 1977, and the description of the alcohol content as "40° Alc." would indicate an even later production
of at least 1982-83.

Hope that's somewhat helpful to you!

Cheers.

Again an old white horse ...

Dear Walter,

I just saw your mails on the website.

I am from Finland and I hope that you have some information, ( age, rearity, production volume etc. and if it has any value /market )about my bottle

I have unsuccesfully tryed to find information about an old , unopened, White Horse whiskybottle that I have.
It is a green glass bottle with an old looking label with the text "The old blend Scotch Whisky and a printed, running number 641733.

I think that this bottle is over 30 years old, but I do not know. If so, what about the quality of the whisky, has it become better while being in the bottle, or worse.

I would be greatful for any information you have.

Yours truly,

Kai,

I can certainly help you with most of what you want to know...Production Volume is one area I would not have any information on.

First thing we need to do is to take a couple of good clear photos of the Top & Front of the bottle. (Place your bottle in a standing position, against a light/white background, then take one photo of the Front side whowing the whole bottle.)

The Serial # is only part of the dating process, and is usually preceded by a 2-4 digit letter-code (or actual year).
These letter-codes were reused with each successive monarch in the UK, so they have to be matched against the Royal Warrant notation on the main label to make any sense of...but all this will be appearant in the main label.

As for market value, alot will have to do with not only the bottle's age, but also the conditon of the labels & contents; for this resaon it is very important to have a clear photo against a light/white background so that the contents show clearly.

You will need to actually 'log-in' in order to post photos, but it's quick - Look forward to assisting you!

Cheers,
Walter C Hurst

This has the crest of The Late King George on it which was used from 1938 until 1955.

I'm not an expert, but i guess from what i see on the label it should be from the early 50s or late 40s

GABRIEL,

Your bottle of White Horse (EQ 879084) date to late 1947 or early 1948...Unfortunately the Serial # itself does not give us an exact bottling date, however it can be compared to other bottles with known datings and from this comparison a relative bottling period can be obtained.

Cheers,
Walter C Hurst

Cobo,

Just an an FYI, the crest that you mentioned on the bottle of White Horse is actually the Coat of Arms for the House of Windsor; This has been on every bottle of White Horse since receiving their first Royal Warrant from King Edward VII in 1908.

Good guess on the general age of the bottle though

Cheers,
Walter C Hurst
