Not sure that is a Question.. but Yes...
So what is everyone opinions on this topic do you decant? does the lack of an air tight seal mean that you are handcuffed to drink this whisky fast as oxidization will happen quickly?
I have used a Decanter in the past for whisky - looked pretty (and use them all the time for wine)... and pretty much - yes - once decanted you are on the fast track to drinking it (or pouring it out). Decanting is normal when you have a small bar and you have one or two whiskies that you are drinking. They can last a while (several weeks to a month(s)), but it all depends on how good your seal is (I had one with a silicone ring that did pretty good).
Or are there special (expensive im assuming) glass decanters for whisky that have some sort of plastic seal that keeps them even more air tight then cork and a bottle ?
I have not seen one, but google may be able to tell you. But with about 90+ open bottles it would take a lot of money for me to buy a pile of good seal decanters..
Good questions thought... Cheers Steve...
