Scotch Font

Seeking help identifying the font on this Scotch Decanter Label Chain. Appears to have been done by hand because of the variations in the "c". Also, the "c" looks like a "g".

I'm not sure, but it reminds me of the way I'd simplify Algerian if I were in a hurry and didn't have it in front of me. The C in the font is less extreme, but it does curl in have a similar serif.

Here are the names and images of some related fonts if you feel like hunting them down too. Good luck!

You can see the similarities and differences by doing a "test drive" here at about 60 or 72 the ballpark, at least!

I doubt it's a unique "font" per-se, but, rather, an engraver's stylized version of some standard serif letterforms. Hand engraving, in particular, tends to rely on basic letterform styles rather than unique, identifiable fonts.
