Sounds like it has been exposed to enough oxygen over the years that all the alcohol has evaporated. It isn't dangerous to drink its just going to have that "Medicinal" flavor you spoke of. Although i wouldn't risk it and just cork it up and keep it as a collectable. Or just dump the old crown out and just keep the bottle..... i know its hard to pour out booze
