Aged Whiskey ? (Crown Royal)

I came across a couple bottles of Crown Royal in my grandpa's garage a while back.

They both still have the tags (Stickers) from the cap to the glass bottle (Which seals the cap) on them. The stickers say 1958 on them.

I'm wondering if anyone knows anything about aged whiskey.

Is the Whiskey still good?

Do you think its worth any $?

Thanks

Nick

My buddy broke out some older Crown Royal (ironically from his Grandpa, too) as well.....it tasted pretty good with Coke

Now that I think about it, I got lit up pretty quickly that night...not sure if it has to do with the age, though.

Dude... you blew a great old bottle with a cola mixer?! Sinner...

Hopper, I have a bottle (same story as the rest of ya) from '51. I've had a few sips lately and I can tell you its still good. I won't say it's "extra smooth" or anything. But it probably won't give you Polio. My bottle was opened already, so no harm. If you have them still closed, follow Buz's advice and see what they're worth.

Enjoy. Just don't go mixing an heirloom like that with coke!!

They should still be good. I don't think they would actually "age" anymore after they've been bottled. Not like wine does. not much residual sugar in whiskey, I think all the aging occurs in the barrel. I do ebay, buy some Booker's and some bike parts!

they are prolly still good - but the age is determined by the years it has spent in the barrel. That's also where it gets it's taste from - taking on the properties of the wood. They will prolly still be worth something to a collector but they won't be any better having stayed in the bottle. But it always depends on who you're asking.

You most likely drink 25 year old scotch with water too

Sometimes goodbye is your second chance.

I have an opened bottle from 1965. Still good! If you plan on mixing it with coke, sell it to someone who will appreciate it and by yourself some Jack.

Not to bastardize your thread at all but I was at a rave 2 years ago and saw a guy that made a pair of pants out of the velvet bags that crown royal comes in. the entire pair of pants was that purple velvet and you could tell it was the actaul bags from the bottle.

All I have to say is that those pants looked so comfortable. Interesting idea though.

Anyways, back to the topic at hand.

correct on that note. the ageing process finished when it comes out of the barrels. Charred barrels to be exact.

not all hope is lost, some people still appreciate good whiskey. If you just use it for mixers just get some cheapo and sell the good stuff or keep it for someone special.
