This is how some of us fruitcake nuts get cakes to go 7-12-20 years.

The alcohol is the preservative and it also mellows it out. Choose the booze you like. You can use any. Whisky, Scotch, Bourbon, Cognac, etc. You're just sprinkling it on to keep the cheesecloth moist and not dousing the cake with it. While the aroma of the booze is there, it's not really a tipsy cake that you would get a buzz on.
