    Re: 95 Year old whiskey found

    I've been lucky to taste a few of these old timers. Some have been excellent, others not so much. I'm doubtful the attic kept them in good condition- and would suggest a cool dark basement as a better storage of the spirit. A really neat find tho-

    Cheers,

    I just read this story. They very well may be decent but with the storage conditions I doubt it.

    I just had some Old Crow last week at a wedding. It was nothing to get excited about.

    But 100 year Old Crow might be amazing, if for no other reason than to taste whiskey from another age. I'm glad he plans to open them when they mature to 100 years old and only wish I was there for the uncorking.

    Re: 95 Year old whiskey found

    I'm just glad the guy who found it is into bourbon. I'd follow the old drink one, save one, sell the rest. I'm pretty sure it would bring me lots of good whiskey in exchange for 8 bottles of 100 year old crow...

    Man finds whiskey

    How much luckier can a man get. now do you taste it or sell it? perhaps a little of both? I'm leaning towards both.

    Hopefully the fact they were under floor boards and pretty well wrapped kept the evaporation down. We have 5 more years to make friends with this guy.
