Smile BLACK & WHITE Buchanan's Blended Scotch Whisky 86.8 Proof - 4/5 Pint Bottle

Good morning greetings,

I have an old Black & White bottle I found in the basement. It has a kork and seal cap made in Scotland, with 5 legible labels on a dark green bottle, 3 on the front, 2 on the back, one of which shows the black & white scotties.

On the bottom is embossed: "N" to the left, an "7" to the right, "S797" at the top, and "U C B" at the bottom.

Please take a look at my photos when you have a moment. Any information anyone has as to the age and/or value of this bottle is much appreciated.

Thanks kindly & have a blessed day!

This bottle dates to between 1955, when the Queen first granted her Royal Warrant, to the mid 1960s when the labelling was next changed on the bottles. It has the US distributor's label on it, so would have been produced as an export bottle for the US market. As for value, try contacting or and post your findings here!

I have a bottle that is very similar to the pictures you show. Labels differ some. My bottle is full and sealed. Is this worth anything? Is it drinkable?
