Re: Storing whisky upright or lying down?
Storage of Whisky should be upright. The alcohol content of Whisky can deteriorate the cork. Also there is enough evaporation in the bottle to keep the cork moist for a long time. For a sealed bottle, pretty much indefinably (unless tampered with). For an open bottle it should be good for years or at least until you are down to the last bit of Whisky in the bottle. Then you can work on finishing it off or transfer into a smaller container.
