Pancho dug it up. He works for the city. He's got the keys to the backhoe or whatever. He was all lowbuck one night and swiped the brandy.

That's why the pirate captain always kills the burial detail in the movies.

That's really odd, maybe the bottle exploded from the pressure? I have witnessed old bottles of alcohol suddently explode for no reason before, but there would at least be broken glass in there so who knows.

The brandy would have gone stale and rancid. Brandy is not like wine in that it does not get better with age.

A 25 year time capsule is weak. I have magazines over 25 years old in my bathroom.

LVD, you should know better

If the seal has not been broken, brandy is neither better nor worse. Brandy only ages and improves in the barrel, but it doesn't get worse in a sealed bottle.

Wine is another story. If corked (no screw tops allowed!) and properly stored, it gets better for decades but eventually it sours. Even then it may be good wine vinegar.
