Fall 1959 Old Grand-Dad

Postby bourbonitis » Mon Sep 24, 2001 12:29 am

I received a (un-opened, seal-intact) bottle of 100 proof Old Grand-Dad with 2 dates upon the seal... Fall 1959 and a little lower Fall 1964... for my birthday. Is boubon this old still drinkable? Does it get "better" with age? Is it valuable as such? It sure looks good... but should I crack it open?!? Thanks in advance for any information you can give me!

I'm no expert, but it is my understanding that as long as the bottle is unopened, there are no ill effects of great age. On the other hand, there are no benefits, either. I.e., it does NOT provide additional aging. The aging process is halted when the whiskey is removed from the barrel.

Cheers, Tim
