It’s delicious and refreshing, but after 61 years on the shelf?

“As a connoisseur of Coke,” Cersosimo said. “It tastes like a day old, like you drank half a Coke and you just left it out over night, wake up in the morning, ‘Oh there’s the half bottle of Coke left.’”

The cork under the cap was colored green but the caramel-colored beverage still had some carbonation. The pair describe the libation as musty and compare the taste to licking an old couch.
