It kills brain cells, so I’m sure it will give Covid hell.  The taste alone will kill Covid.

Don’t drink that shit, don’t even open it. I am one of the few people in this country that can dispose of it properly.

You might want to splash a wee bit of water in the glass with that.

Years ago there was an online liquor store, in Missouri IIRC. I went online and bought a few bottles of various labels we can't get here in Alabama (ABC stores ).

Anyway, some of them got put back in a cabinet. Time passed, leaves fell, water went under the bridge and I disremembered them.

So my son in law comes up for a visit and I started digging around and came up with a bottle of van Winkle 15y/o. He was agog. He's a big seeker of high dollar bourbons. He couldn't believe a fan of Old Forester could come up with a bottle of van Winkle.

I actually have never had any high end bourbon and this stuff is listed as the "cheapest" pappy, so I was wondering how it compared to other pappy labels or other brands.

Mix it with Diet Coke. Off brand preferably
Link Posted: 1/13/2021 6:24:01 PM EST
It is decent with coke.

You can also use it for egg nog.

The closest story I have to that is when we moved into our house, the previous owners left a case of canadian club that was at least 20 years old.  They say it doesn't age in the bottle but that stuff was smooooth.

I was thinking of cutting it with bubly.  Maybe the cranberry flavor to hide the yucky taste.

It used to be OK for $35 but I had others I preferred in that price range.

When my grandmother (a teetotaling Methodist pack rat) passed my brothers and I packed up her apartment. There were two bottles of "Old 1889 Brand" bottled in bond bourbon. She had taken them from her brother's when he died. They dated from the 1960s. Back before millimeters were a thing. Federal tax strip glued to the cork. My brothers wouldn't touch them so I brought them home and tracked down the distillery that bought Old 1889. I called them and asked if I'd go blind if I sipped some. They said if it had been kept room temp it was probably still good. It was ok for what was probably never top of the line bourbon. I still have the second bottle. About half of the contents have evaporated, guess the cork dried out and it excaped.

In all seriousness it’s good, but I prefer other bourbons, like Booker’s, which are also more readily available. Pappy 12 and 15 are far better than van winkle 10 to me personally.

Bookers is my danger drink. I get the look from my wife if I reach for it. I’ve embarrassed her too many times.

Save the bottle if you ever finish it.  Fill with Early Times, Kentucky Gentleman, or some other low shelf.  Serve it to folks who know bourbon but never had it.  Watch the reactions.  Lol.

It's good for making $600-700, other than that there's cheaper and better stuff out there.
