I prefer to finish my whiskies quickly for the most part, though there are some with off notes and tastes which improve with time as long as the off note leaves more quickly than the good ones.
As for what you did wrong, how is the cork? I've had bad corks from Diageo.
The cork looks OK, but I'm no expert on this. Could be that it doesn't close well.
Is there a list or something of whiskys that loose their character or taste relatively fast? I already have the following personal expierence:
Lagavulin 16yr - loses character within a couple of weeks
Balvanie DoubleWood - loses character withing 2-3 months
MacAllan Fine Oak - changes taste, but it seems to taste better to me
Glenmorangie 10yr - doesn't change much in my opinion
