 fuzzy dunlop: Relevant

Fascinating. This however: "Here," I said, thinking that I was making sense. "Pour it in this Ziploc bag."

I mean you could, for instance, pour it through a strainer into your glasses and saved 30 mins worth of drinking time.

Why does the other story say 48 bottles?  And how many bottles are in a case?  Since they found 9 cases and the cases look to be able to hold 9 bottles.

/strange in deed
//why rent a basement apartment in a mansion to anyone at all.
///bought the mansion in 1986 according to the other article not a year ago.

Bought in 86, opened as a B&B a year ago, and the liquor wasn't found until the renovation as a B&B. And therein lies the source of the confusion.

Wine, when aged too long, can become vinegar.

Whiskey, when aged too long, can become syrup.

Vodak, when aged too long, can become Russian.

Pick: "Had I known it was worth that much, I would have traded ONE bottle for 70 bottles of Maker's Mark, and came out ahead."


Or like 170 bottles of early times, quantity has a quality unto itself.

dwrash: Whiskey does not improve once it's in a glass bottle... and whiskey left in a barrel too long absorbs more off-flavors and will eventually turn to syrup and become undrinkable.

Whiskey also needs to breath, which is why most bottles have a cork top.. which will cause it to evaporate over long periods of time.

To a Whiskey conneseur, I would think whiskey that old would not be valued all that much... it would be a novelty item that one would put on the shelf and never drink... so if the bottles only contained colored liquid, they would be just as valueable as if they contained real whiskey.

Just my 2 cents.... but what do I know?


In the original article it stated he removed some of the labels as well.

Western PA Man charged with drinking $102,000 worth of pre-Prohibition whiskey


http://www.wtae.com/news/local/Man-charged-with-drinking-102-000-wor th -of-pre-Prohibition-whiskey/-/9681086/19430164/-/dvewv0z/-/index.html" >http://www.wtae.com/news/local/Man-charged-with-drinking-102-000-wor th -of-pre-Prohibition-whiskey/-/9681086/19430164/-/dvewv0z/-/index.html

Aside from the fact that they're different stories- one concerns the fact that he's charged, and details the crime, and TFA describes a post-court appearance where he posits that they evaporated, and argues that the owner has overvalued the whisky, as well as supplying a few new quotes from the perp.

So, except for the part where it is not in fact a repeat and correctly labeled as a follow-up, you're totally right.


i'm just pissed that he didnt share any of the rye with me

Snort: Came to add that about the aging. But he would still get the money cause people are ignorant.


Or not ignorant.

I'd pay a LOT for a piece of history. If had a few grand and was into prohibition, I'd buy pre-prohibition whiskey at four digit prices no hesitation. Might even take a sip. But mostly it would be for the history.
