So I just bought a few bottles of Glenfiddich Cask of Dreams from a retailer in the States. Both bottles were a bit dented (as many seem to be from shipping) but I bought anyways as this was a tough bottle to find.
Eack tin canister is sealed with tape and the tape was perfectly intact. However, when I opened, the bottle looked like none I have ever purchased. The foil wrap (as the top) was partially torn (where you normally tear the strip to open) and the cork was pushed a bit out. It looked like the foil was pushed under the cork a bit which caused it to make the cork lift slightly. As the canister tape was intact, leads me to believe it was a manufacturing fault. None leaked and I opened and consumed.
Has anyone else had this happen with any whisky? I doubt it could have been from the severe dent in the cannister as I see no way that could have impacted the foil. Or could it??
