Your five images are consistently light amber. Individual computers (and cameras, I suppose) may vary in rendering colors, but I would expect to see some variance between images as the light angles and glass thickness change. I checked on my other computer to look for local color variance -- none I could detect. Olive green is a more common color for scotch whiskey, but this one is amber.
Thank you Harry.

I was thinking it’s a light olive that boarders on a light amber? Lady leg whiskey. 1 thing is clear- dug bottles never looked like that around here, but we have some soil like concrete! That’s really pretty- all tall and narrow- (my cats would fix that.) Its really an unusual color! Does it change in different lighting, like it appears to?

I don't want to argue over the color, but it looks olive to me. My camera changes colors for some reason and makes it look amber. Maybe this will help. Softer morning back lighting. I put it next to an amber milk. Now you can see the true color.

No matter the color... Great bottle, great find...
I'd be back there looking for more..
Looks like a precarious hold on those two...
Hope it was over carpet at least.

I almost dropped them right after the picture. No the floor is one of my tiled mud jobs. Nothing survives a fall on this floor, rock hard. Just ask the 5 gallon carboy I dropped bare foot. What a mess. I sit at the table now.

You mean I’m not the only one?! Sad about the car boy.

Your bottle does look olive now, Robby. Much more typical.
Breakage, ugh! Every collector probably has a story. My parrot was startled by something, he flew and tried to land on the neck of a bubblelike demijohn I had hand-carried from France. A bottle like this one, except larger:

Beautiful demijohn, do you still have the parrot? I know they live a long life.
