Default Age of antique “Frigate Rum” Johnnie Walker

Any help aging this bottle of John Walker & Sons Frigate Rum would be much appreciated. The embossed stamp appears to say “Frigute Rum”.

I’m currently unable to add a photo, it will endeavour to do so ASAP.

Thanks in advance,

Katherine

This spelling got my curiosity and as near as I can determine it's from an era where English didn't have fully standardized set of rules as to how words could be spelled.

Found this in a search:

"Fairfax was within twenty miles of Falmouth, while Jermyn’s promise of reinforcements from France remained unfulfilled. Accordingly 2 March 1645-6 the prince sailed in a frigute that had been kept in readiness, and reached Scilly 4 March. The army under Hopton, already completely demoralised, was speedily dissolved."
