I’m fairly new to this hobby and am currently in the exploring fase – curious and wanting to taste the many whiskies I read and hear about.
On the other hand I can’t just indulge – work, girlfriend and all the other day to day activities that fills a life impose some constraints, (which is probably quite good for my health
) and most weeks I have just a few drams in the weekends – 2-5 on average, I think.
So, keeping in mind that one should’nt have to many bottles open at a time due to detoriation, it is slow going and I often find myself impatiently looking at the bottles in my modest collection, waiting for the time that I finally can finish a bottle and thus open the next one.
I find myself whishing that there were more halfbottles (35 cl) on the shelfes of the shops I frequent. It would obviously make it possible to buy and taste more different distilleries & expressions and help a lot to finish a bottle in due time.
And therefore this poll. I’m simply curious to hear your thoughts on this – do you find smaller bottlings desirable or do you think that the standard 70 cl bottle is the optimal size ?
