Hello, I was wondering if anyone could help me identify the age of this bottle or maybe a rough valuation?

It's sealed, was once owned by my grandpa Sid J. I think the "James Street" is probably no coincidence as to why he picked Cutty Sark Smile

Attaching photos of the bottle and the writing underneath, not sure what it means...

70 proof Cutty Sark at 70-75cl can go anywhere from £20 to £60 usually sometimes even higher.
As this bottle is half Gallon my guess is on a good day between £75-£125, it really is pot luck with odd sized bottles
some 2 litre bottles can go higher than £150, this one may also???
There are lots of old Cutty Sark about, so value is not massive all things considered.

This looks like a 1960's bottle to me,
