Old mead

I have one bottle left of an 18% cherry mead that I brewed 17 years ago. 😢
I'm just here for the beer.

Rookie,
Drink them both, right now!
Take pics (obviously).
Give us a side by side review, when you sober up a little bit! :D

They are both in 25 ounce bottles and when I do get to drinking them it won't be both at the same time. I may have to spread each one out over two nights.

There will be, but I kind of hate drinking the last bottle of either one especially since I've held out all this time.
