I need some help dating this Balvenie 21 Portwood i picked up today from a new store i happened to come across:Extra Evidence (Click to show)
From some quick internet research, it looks like it's two iterations old, since the current bottling is in metal containers, and the one before it was in a box that simply had a shelf for the 21 yr. old. This one has a velvet lining, and the tags are from a much older bottling than current, at 43% alcohol compared to the 40% of the current online version. It definitely looks like it has been sitting a bit, and the cork actually broke when i tried to open it, it was very tender. Any help is appreciated.
Also from the same store, a rarity i have been told, JW Green Label:
I enjoy it more than the Dewars 12 blend that i also have, good stuff...
