It looks to be a standard bottle of Red Label from the time they used a cork closure. If they changed at the same time as the rest of the indistry to a metal cap then it would date from around 1960/70 or earlier. It really depends on what the strength and bottle size that's quoted on the label.

Thanks for posting photos - I will see what I can find out for you. Just a note that it may take a bit longer than usual because of the holidays - but we should be able to date it. Thanks for your patience!
