  1. What is the shelf like on Kessler’s wiskey? I was cleaning the basement, and found a case of it?
    It’s probably 40 yrs. old………… it still good?

  2. When my wife and I were in Puerto Rico, the people at the Bacardi distillery, which does not distill there, told us a Cuba Libre is make with dark rum and Coke. Yours says otherwise.
