It may have been done before it was realised what the bottle actually was


They knew very well what they had.

But I just read that what he sampled was from an 1870 Madeira cask, not the 1796 Madeira bottles, so who knows.


Kean sampled wine from an original 1870 cask of Madeira that was still palatable, saying it tasted akin to sherry.
CNN


It has not been decided if a bottle will be opened or who might get to take the first sip.

Madeira is a fortified wine that is cooked, or gradually heated. This makes it practically indestructible. Which is good if you want to keep it in your cupboard for a few months.


I just looked up what a 1975 vintage bottle of Medeira costs, and it was $200.00.

These will be very much sought after.


As an independent appraisal:


According to the rare wine company, each bottle is estimated to be worth somewhere between $10,000 and $25,000. They could go for more at auction.

But it was tasted and found to taste like sweet sherry.

Evidently the catering department of the museum haven't been practicing proper stock rotation. That was surely meant for the Trustees' annual dinner in 1817.
While they are at it, I hope somebody is checking the "best consumed by" dates on all the sandwiches.

P.S. "Have some Madeira, m'dear. I've got a small cask of it here..."

A US/UK Commonwealth and the world is ours. I can feel the EU, Russia, China, NK, and the M.E. Fiefdoms trembling at the thought.

LOL...LMAO.....a US/EU..."common wealth".......LMAO....the Royal Family are the ones who husband humanity through the coming earth changes.....hidden under the floor of the Coronation room is a message which outlines the job the Royal Family is tasked with....they are the single group in control of HUMANITIES future......zero to do with Royal blood and EVERYTHING to do with continuity of the human race.

Nobody "owns" anything and borders are blusters......there are no real divisions or countries which are not prescribed and allowed.

Humanities birthrate has been intentionally inflated globally....its a numbers game.....some of us MUST SURVIVE ....and its a global whitewash with zero guarantees for anyone anywhere.

There is a much bigger picture to be seen if one knows where to look.

Bottles of sediment probably, valued more for their age and label than to drink.

Who wants alcohol you can't drink?


Don't be so sure:


Liberty Hall President John Kean said he sampled the wine. He compared it to a sweet sherry.




If that is true then the value of that particular bottle has just massively decreased.


He's the official Museum 'Taster'. Like the lost / find 'story' , I hardly believe this one ether.

That should have said a US/UK Commonwealth Alliance. It would be most powerful alliance the world has ever seen. Not even the Synagogue of Satan could stand against it.

So it is reported in the history books.


Updated news:




Throughout the late-17th and 18th centuries Madeira wine was the preferred liquor of the American gentleman. Indeed, George Washington himself is said to have been a keen admirer of the spirit from the Portuguese island of the same name. Liberty Hall was once home to William Livingston, New Jersey’s very first governor and a signer of the Constitution. It is thought that most of the 50 bottles and 42 demijohns discovered at the museum were exported at the behest of millionaire wine merchant Robert Lennox, who was based in New York.




Although as of yet no price has been put on the find, it is expected that each bottle would receive as much as $10,000 each should they ever head to auction.
