Looks like "Swizzle Flame" - see Scotland's Glass.

Perfect. Looks like a match to me. Think it must be a 'second' though, says 'Unselected' on the paper label to base.

Thanks very much for the link. Very useful to know.
Many thanks, Anthony

Correct - at one stage Caithness abandoned proper marking of seconds and just attached labels - which easily "fall off" - though not with your weight.
