Bourbon and Scotch Storage

reality check | Jul 5, 2006 10:06 AM

I was helping a friend move and she found a huge box of bourbon (Jim Beam, Marker's Mark, Knob Creek) and scotch (Black label Johnny Walker, Chivas, Royal Salute).

They were in the original boxes and then stored inside another box. The box was stored in her garage which of course went through lots of temp. changes, hot summer and cold winters for about five years in the LA area.

I checked a couple bottles and they all looked fine but we didn't drink any. So can the scotch and bourbon go bad in those type of conditions? Will they be safe to drink?

I got my eyes on the Royal Salute!!
