After I read this article to my husband, he said, "That has got to be some smooth whiskey by this time."

I wouldn't drink it anyway. I may be from Kentucky, but I simply hate the taste and smell of whiskey and bourbon. I don't know much about the aging process of whiskey, and wondered if it could age after bottled.

I wonder if anybody is going to try the old stuff they found.

I grew up around a lot of men who drank in the family. Their poison of choice was whiskey/bourbon. I can't stand the smell of the stuff. I don't even like bourbon balls.

It is kind of neat that this booze outlasted the explorer that took it to Antarctica, though.

She threw not through, like I walked through the closet peeing on all her shoes. We did have a walk in closet so technically i was walking and peeing on her shoes. I bet I looked funny doing that, oh I remember now, I was dreaming about a big snow and I was trying to spell my name in the on the side of a hill. She thought i was drunk, its hard to walk on the side of a hill and spell your name with pee.
