Default Is this a 63 Pompero?

I found this bottle at my parents and it's one of my favorite rums. It has no numbers or markings on the front or back labels but does on the neck seal. I wanted to know if it truly is from 63 as indicated on the back label, if it would hold up, what it could be worth and the best way to enjoy.

Let me know if you have any questions

If it was me I'd put in a glass and taste it.
But I have no self control. Or class for that matter.

Try and find what similar brands from this era go for on ebay and other websites. I'd keep it and do a taste comparison with a new bottle.
