Default Johnnie Walker Black Label Help! New Member

Hi all, new member here I'm looking for help with an old bottle found in my grandmother's house after she recently passed away. If anyone can help with ageing, valuing or letting me know it's drinkable it would be greatly appriciated.
Thanks!

If you have a feel for how long it's been around, that will be a good indication unless it is very, very old. Is it open? If it is open, I would suggest sampling it. Whisky is made to be consumed. Yes, some collectors will say this is blasphemy...but. There is no reason to expect it to be undrinkable. I had an open bottle of my dad's that was open for over 25 years. It was about 7/8 full. Tasted perfect.

hi, this is a late 1970s Duty free bottle - worth approx. $60-75. Yes, you can definitely drink it - they are great to compare to current black labels!
