Century-Old Whisky Found Under House

Following the indications of a vague rumour doing the rounds about a former inhabitant, the new owners of a New York abode have managed to get their hands on a true treasure of urban archaeology: 66 bottles of one-hundred-year-old whisky. It seems likely it was a bootlegger’s “stash” from the US Prohibition era. Every non-oxidized bottle of “Gaelic Old Smuggler “ has been estimated at around 1000 dollars… Quite a windfall for the couple, who intend to keep one or two bottles for personal consumption. We should, without further delay, remind the lucky finders that having an old “bottle” is no guarantee that you’ll be drinking a fine vintage. If it has not aged naturally in its cask, and especially after a century of slow evaporation in its bottle, the whisky will probably taste a bit like an old soda gone flat…
