Whisky doesn't keep that well. Nice bottle and could be added to Scotland's Glass site - I would be grateful if you could let me have 3 images of different views on a light ground please.  :)

see envelope to the left for email address.

I will include it as Scottish Themed as there is no certainty the bottle was made in Scotland - though it is likely.
