I'm probably overcooking this:-

Pathtraced in about 20 - 30 mins
Lighting is a spot and a couple of portals, plus an hdr for reflections
The post processing is all Blender.

The raw render:-

I'll try to update it soon to clear the banding and reduce the bloom.

This is very nice, and I actually like the overall result of the post pro very much. My only issue with it is that the liquid in the bottle doesn't look a lot like scotch anymore.

Exactly! Reminds me more something like Mateus Rose...
But it is very nice nonetheless!

Here is an update.

I find it difficult to reproduce the glowing translucency of real world liquids:-

Though obviously the lighting and the environment play a big part in the end result.

For instance, these two images use the same materials, the only difference is the lighting and environment:-

I guess more testing is required :?

Really?
I think your doing it quite well!.
If you change your background plane to white you will get a very similar result to your references. They all have a white background. Usually only perfumes are photographed with dark backgrounds.

You can also place a backlight and keep the dark background.
