does time spent bottled affect taste?
Hello all, i was just given a bottle of Canadian Club that has the seal on the cap still. It says 1974. So to me that means this Rye was bottled 30 years ago. is this correct?
I am wondering what i should do with it? I do not expect it has any monetary or worth in dollars, but since it was passed to me, and it has been in the bottle 30 years I am curious.
Does time elapsed (30 years) in the bottle affect the product? taste? smoothness? or anything? or would it still be just the same as it was when it was bottled?
Basically just curious weahter it is harmful to drink after such a long time in the bottle, or If i should crack it and enjoy it on a special occasion due to it's bottling date .... i'd like to enjoy a good glass of it, but I'd also like to pass it on one day perhaps.
thank in advance for any responsed, opinions, etc... thanks
