This is an old bottling by the independent bottler Ian MacLeod. This bottle was found in an old castle in Belgium! The bottle was imported by Ets. Winny, Brussels. Details can be found on the back-label.
The company Ian MacLeod was founded in 1936 by Leonard J. Russel. Their output exceeds ten million bottles of whiskies each year, which makes them one of the bigger players in the field. Their brands include Chieftain's (in the past it was marketed under the full name 'Chieftain's Choice), the Shieldaig Collection, MacLeod's, Hedges & Butler, Dun Bheagan, As We Get It, Dunfife, Glenshire, King Robert II, Smokehead, Isle of Skye and Langs. Apart from a sizeable collection of casks (Ian MacLeod supposedly owns over 20,000 casks of maturing whisky from many different distilleries) Ian MacLeod obtained their own distillery a few years ago; Glengoyne. Since they acquired Glengoyne in 2003, the quality of the distillery's output has improved significantly. Ian MacLeod also owns a large bottling plant at Broxburn where they bottle other spirits like gin, vodka and rum.
