    If the bottle's still sealed and has been stored away from heat and direct sunlight, it should be good to drink. (Here's more info about when to toss old liquor: As for the value of your bottle, we'd recommend getting in touch with Edgar Harden: His company buys and sells old spirits of all kinds.

    I have a very old bottle of Mandarine Napoleon that still has a US Internal Revenue & stamp code number. Does it have any value? Is it still good to drink? Any comments would be appreciated!
