    Homeowner Patricia Hill surmised Brennan hid the whiskey during Prohibition. Hill purchased the South Broadway mansion from Brennan's daughter at auction in 1986. Since then, Hill has been remodeling the mansion and filling it with antiques in order to open a bed and breakfast, which she did in December 2012.

    "The whiskey was buried right back here under these stairs. They were doing renovations down here for the plumbing and electrical and they had to rip out underneath the stairs. Whenever they did, they discovered nine cases of the Old Farm Pure Rye Whiskey," said South Broadway Manor's chef and innkeeper, Rick Bruckner. "The story with this isn't just, 'Hey, we have some really old whiskey.' It's, 'Hey, we have some really old, historical whiskey.'"

    I'm stupid with that shit. You could put a 30-year-old bottle of scotch in front of me and a 30-day-old bottle and I couldn't fucking tell you the difference.

    Same thing with wine. I just nod and tell people how much better this is than the last glass I had. Damned if I can tell swill from swell. :dontknow:

    You could tell the difference. Whiskey is extremely raw unless it's aged a minimum of three years in wood. My guess is that this stuff is about a 4-6 year old whiskey.

    Someone told me that they heard that Heineken is the latest manufacturer to start watering down their beer. I drank more than 8 last night and damned if I can tell the difference. :jj:

    I used to drink that, for several years, but since I switched to Heineken Light, I can't stand Amstel.

    Weird how your tastes change, huh?

    OP story pisses me off. Several years back, my aunt came into possession of several bottles of 100+ year old Cognac, and set aside a bottle for me, one for her son, one for her daughter. My goddamned psycho cousin (the daughter) swilled down every bit of it (not at once)....:mad: :pissed:
