    I think it would be worth keeping.

    And drinking.

    Many moons ago I opened a bottle of either a 12 or 18 year-old whisky that was my dad's that had been sitting around, sealed, for at least ten-years more. There was a sort of sugar crust on the inside top of the bottle and the whisky did taste, well, very sweet.

    I don't know if the sugar crust formed naturally in the bottle or if there was some kind of contamination or leak.

    So, to answer your question - I'm sorry, I don't know.
