Default Helped clean out the Grandparent's basement...

My grandparents are getting up in age and my mom and uncle are starting to help them go through 50 years or so of their stuff.

Here is what I get for being a good grandson, as you can see I have already gotten into a couple of them (all were still sealed) -











Harvey Wallbanger anyone?






I believe they are all pretty much around the same vintage (early 80's). The Swing is absolutely stellar.

That JW Swing bottle is pretty sweet. Love how it rocks back and forth. It tastes very good as well. Enjoy!!!

That's awesome! I was gifted some VO from '63 and '66. The '63 is gone, working on the '66. I'm not sure if it evolves or ages per se, but I think it tasted different (better) than the current production stuff. Kind of had that musty nose but was very very smooth and quite good. I had a thread over at CS about it that had some interesting discussion about if it ages/changes. When you try it, let us know what you think!

I just helped clean out my wife's grandparent's condo as they moved to Florida permanently. Unfortunately they drink too much and all the booze was new.

I've been into it, it is really good. Very smooth.

I'm saving the rest to enjoy when we go to the superbowl this year Joel!
