Why so serious?
Wow, that would be a serious disappointment.My wife’s cousin had done quite well for himself very early in life, and about 20 years ago, in his mid 30’s, he built a beautiful home with a budget of 1.5 million dollars.
It had all the cool things like a theater room, a small gymnasium, and a wine cellar. In his business at the time, he entertained frequently, so when his home was completed, he promptly placed an order for as many of the finest wines as necessary to fill that wine cellar. If memory serves, he spent about $20,000 on wine alone.
Fast forward 15 years, and we caught up to talk about things we always used to talk about, and he mentioned that he had an unexpected experience. He was winding down his career, and started to work on some of that wine. He was a little humbled in that he now had a cellar that was largely filled with vinegar.
Many of them were just fine, of course, be he wanted to drive home a point. “Enjoy it all while you can”, he said with a smile.
the only that that harms hard liquor is evaporationWith whiskey, you have maybe two years from when you open it, half a bottle lasts half a year. Quarter bottle, well just have a bigger pour and finish it. It's all about how much air is in the bottle. At least that's what I remembered.
