    Is this stuff any good?

    Ended up with a bottle of this. What do you think - would it mix better with Diet Coke, RC Cola, Mountain Dew or ginger ale :

    I think you should mix it with some Tab.

    You're going to need some Crystal Pepsi.

    Oooh! I know - Evan Williams eggnog!

    Finally opened it, and am teasing my nose and taste buds with it right now. Very nice.

    I hope it goes with the supreme pizza I'm cooking.

    Mark,

    Congratulations -- that is sure to be some wonderful brandy.

    I was lucky enough to enjoy some Louis XIII because my Dad bought a sealed, very dusty bottle at a garage sale. I think he paid about $20 for it.

    Enjoy it in good health.

    Nope, it's really kind of meh, you should probably just pour it down the sink and use the bottle as a decanter for Rebel Yell or Old Crow.

    I broke down and used it as aromatic fuel for one of those alcohol candle things.

    Opened it last night. Very nice, but very delicate. I had a pour of bourbon later, and the difference was dramatic.

    I've actually had it in a PBR bomb... (I actually had the sense to try some before it was dropped into the PBR but my palate had long been demolished by then).
