Answer
Hi Lynn

This is a kind of brandy, and is distilled up to 38% alcohol.  At that level the alcohol is so high that it doesn't change much once is goes into the bottle.  So this one is still good to drink ( nothing bad can live in 38% alcohol!) but it won't have appreciated in value the way some fine wines do.

Sorry that I can't give you more exciting news.
