No it doesn't...it's a 29-year-old bottle of 10-year-old whiskey. 8)

Right. (Sigh, again...) For those who see $$$$ in their old bottlings: whisk(e)y, unlike wine, is basically inert after bottling and does not continue to age; and, many were produced in industrial-sized production runs, thus age does not necessarily equal rarity, even after many years. Old bourbons are interesting to a pretty small collector/aficianado base, and while they command a premium in many cases, please don't get starry-eyed.
