Default Couple finds more than 66 bottles of Prohibition-era whiskey

hidden in the walls of their New York home

Quote:
The couple plans to leave the bottles they found empty or evaporated preserved in the home -- and sell the bottles they found full. The full bottles are estimated at a value of around $1,000 each, said Drummond.
The couple said they will keep one of the full bottles of whiskey to taste test.
Should be pretty smooth by now.

More than 66? LOLWUT?

67?

I can see saying "more than a thousand" or even maybe "more than 100".

But "more than 66" ??? That's just odd.

Tasted 1920 prohibition brandy at a famous steak house in Tampa. Was not so velvety and smooth.

Once whiskey is bottled, it stops aging. A five years old whiskey that has sat in a bottle for 100 years will not be any smoother

Sis and I discovered a rather small stash of liquor in our folks house, when Mom went to the nursing home.....all but one bottle had been opened at least ten years before our finding it in the kitchen cab above the fridge.....

what little we tasted was trash, down the drain it went.....

Whiskey doesn't age in the bottle, only in the cask.

And if it's truly from Prohibition, I definitely wouldn't drink it either.

I've got a couple of full bottles of Dublin Dr Pepper and a full can of Rock and Roll Beer, but I don't think I'd ever try drinking them.

Not my photo, but looks like this:

I remember back in the 80’s we found an old bottle of whiskey labeled as medicine.
I guess that’s how they got around the law back then.
