I paid $75 for it 23 years ago when it was new. I think I'll open it and drink it for no more than it's worth!

DO a little research before you THINK about drinking this 25 year old whiskey!!!!!
If only to save yourself from getting sick..... Th JB Society does NOT reccomend drinking this stuff and they should know.....

Then check on the auction site and someone may give you $50 bucks for it................

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, or good(safe) news however you see it.

HTH

Unlike wine, Bourbon does not get better in the bottle, in fact it deteriorates. If you try to drink it, it won’t taste right.

ASK me how I know that! I have the whole collection, plus a few more, 10 decanters in all............

Also, the product (china/porcelin) tends to develop cracks internally over an extended time and the contents leaks out......
