I work in an airline (cabin crew), and I know for a fact that there is no published list for such a thing. Beside the famous (bomb, explosive, hijack, etc.) words, which is usually said by naive people trying to be funny, the current political situations and international or national threats related words/sentences would raise a flag.

In general the laws pertaining to age for consuming alcohol and purchasing alcohol apply to people within the international departure area of an airport. You are within the territory of the country the airport is in, so you are subject to that country's laws.

Note that whether stuff is boxed, new, etc. or not does nor make a difference in general - it may make a difference for determining the value of the goods, though (new vs. used). An almost-new product ...

The first goal should always be: Do not get arrested in the first place. If you travel common sense demands that you know the most important rules to obey. Traveling books and other information sources will inform you what is legal and illegal and what is polite behavior. This gains importance if you are moving in another culture and it even more important ...

Going to answer this part: "Will it be safe to bring them without risk of paying tax?" Yes it will. Make sure your items are not boxed and wrapped in paper. Unless it looks like your going to sell it, the airport personal will not be bothered.
