Question--

A family member just uncovered a century anniversary Jim Beam whiskey bottle. Does whiskey age well?

This is 100 year anniversary-- from 1872-1972 (Colorado Springs centennial)-- is this worthy to open and drink from?

Looks like this (image from internet):

Dude. That bottle is a bourbon hunters dream. Beam used good juice back then. It doesnt age, so much as it was friggin' high quality to begin with. Enjoy in good health and moderation!
That's helpful. By the way, that bottle is slightly older than my trophy wife ;)
What the hell do I care? Love you, bro, but major fox pass.

My name is Jo and I am an alcoholic.

I must confess that I miss Whisky. Not just the physiological effects such as the high that comes with the drink but I also miss the flavor profiles of the different whiskys.

Scotch Whisky to be exact.

The smoky and peaty Scotch such as Ardbeg and Laphroaig were my favorite. I absolutely loved them.

I also liked to guzzle beer and wine and then fight you. I'm thankful for my sobriety today and for a loving God that helped me get to where I am at today despite of my past failures.

I envy all who can drink like a normal person.
My respect and admiration level for you just went up like 1000%.
Meh. I'm just a dry drunk now.

My wife and I married after emerging from the on-line (mid-life-ish) dating scene. We're a great match and the relationship is going well. She is intelligent, well educated (graduate degreed) and attractive. We sometimes call up the image of "trophy wife" as a jest and joke-- she's the real deal of a great woman and really great for me in many ways. I sloshed some of that jesting here but there's no context so it probably fell flat as a beer left open for 10 days.

She doesn't yet like whiskey-- that may be partly my fault because I'm entering into the trials with low end (bottom shelf) supermarket versions. I liked this "Four Freedoms" brand of blended Canadian whiskey which mixes well -- sours, etc. And I picked up a Piperdean blended scotch whiskey which seems to go well with 1 part of amaretto (to 3 parts whiskey) and ice and a dash of water.

Maybe I need to look through this thread further to gleam better choices (on whiskey).

Sincerely, I was joking. My point was wives are sacred, but you knew that and I'm sorry. I honor her simply because she is your wife.

Bought a bottle of Evan Williams regular Black label yesterday for use in fruit cakes mainly. It was the best I think that the poor little drive through store had. I asked the young lady what their best selling bourbon was and she quickly replied "Crown". I recovered my composure quickly enough to ask for the EW.

<y local shop has a Rye that is labeled "Rod & Rifle", so I had to buy some....it kicked my butt. I had 2 small glasses a few nights ago and woke with a headache. Tried it again last night with the same result. I am thinking I won't buy it again.
I'm thinking you should give it to someone you don't really like.
I am thinking of pouring it down the drain...it was not expensive
I've dumped two bottles of whisky down the drain. Monkey Shoulder was one, and I don't remember the other, it may have been Old Crow.
Hard to believe Old Crow was once the benchmark of quality, even to the point of counterfeiting.

Me, I only really buy Woodford anymore. It's my favorite and since I dont really drink, seems silly to compromise.
A guy on another forum recently listed Old Crow as his current sipping whisky. Reminded me of your post.
I'm a little lost tonight. I'd drink Old Crow if I had some, and smoke a Sam Houston cigar to go along with it.
What I do have are some dregs of Knob Creek rye, and it'll have to do. You ever been there?

Been sipping Old Grand Dad bottled in bond a lot lately. Last week I bought some OGD 114. Really good stuff. Next bottle will probably be some four roses or Woodford. As for Scotch, it’s been JW Red Label. It’s a good value and it tastes good. So does Chivas and Dewar’s. I’m talking their bottom shelf expressions. I’ve no idea what JW Blue Label tastes like. The lower priced “premium” blended Scotches are tasty and the price is right and at this time of year when I have to smoke in a cold garage, I’m not having the most thoughtful smoke/dram sessions. Too bloody cold. It’s -9 right now. I just need whiskey at that temp. Any whiskey!

Had a guy tell me he tried Ambros Banana Whiskey. (a premium brand of high quality whiskey infused with only 100% REAL hand-peeled fresh bananas.)

I had to de-friend him and looking into what it takes for a TRO if needed.
