My father gave me an unopened bottle of chivas regal 12-yr that was purchased in 1984. Was curious if that’s still good to drink?

If it hasn’t visibly evaporated out of the bottle (indicating a bad seal) then it is ok. Won’t be any better for the extra age, but it’s not going to be noticeably worse off either. I got a couple of bottles from my grandmother the same way. No idea how old they are (late ‘90s at least) but they’ve been totally fine.

Good to know. It’s was stored sideways, I don’t see any signs of evaporation. Thx.

Enjoy it like Hunter S. Thompson🥃

It was never good to drink. Can’t imagine 37 years helped. Sorry, that was single malt snobbery. But seriously, if unopened should be fine.

In that case, I will keep it unopened for another 37 years and just passing it down! Lol

Didn’t get any better, but didn’t get any worse either 🤷🏼‍♂️

Just open it and report back!

Deloitte leadership is acting like a baby who wants the lollipop. I agree that working from an office has its advantages. But, post WFH era, they need to understand that people love and want that flexibility of working from any location. I mean calling employees back to base location is just gonna cost well being of some employees. Those who want to work from office should feel comfortable working from office. Same should be for those who are more productive with WFH option.

Great quote form Mimi Slater of @cosbar on motherhood and work: “I don’t think my career path has changed because I became a mother. But, I think my approach to work has changed for the better. I didn’t realize how hard it would be to leave a 12-week-old at home, but I’m so glad I forced myself to get to work in those early days. It took me a while to get back into the swing of things, but now I think that being a mother is a total asset in the workplace. I don’t waste a minute of my workday. I’m better at juggling priorities, and I think I’m more empathetic, certainly towards other working parents.”

Any parents who are still on the safe side with Covid? We have a 1 year old and being safe and staying mostly home is really getting to me. Most of our friends have kids who are able to mask up or are vaccinated and it’s getting quite isolating. Especially now mask mandates are being lifted feeling like we can’t go anywhere without risking our kid.

So I started a new job in March and also got pregnant the same month. The new job is at a small firm and they never had a pregnancy so they do not have policies in place. Who do I tell? There’s one head admin person, two named partners one of which is generally MIA. So nervous about it.
