Default Old "Old Parr" Miniature

I have come across this little bottle that states that it is aged 152 years, on the front label. Thoughts? I can't add attachments, but will send pics on request.

Chad.

Chad, thanks for the photo and we'll see if we can have it dated. The reference to the 152 on your bottle is not the actual age of the scotch, it's in regard to Thomas Parr. Known as "Old Par" - legend has it he was Britain's oldest man, living to the ripe old age of 152. He is buried in Westminster Abbey, London.
