We've been making this for about 5 years now.
Yes, it ages very well. As a matter of fact, we always make enough to keep in the fridge for a year to enjoy the next year. With all that booze, it is preserved, just like a German Eierlikör, and if anyone is worried about fresh eggs and salmonella, it's not going to live in all that alcohol.
That said, I try to procure fresh farm eggs when we make it, just because.
If you're making this for the holidays, I would suggest making it now, follow the recipe, do not sub and/or leave out. It is absolute perfection as is.
