Unhappily for some this is just further evidence that the stuff was made to be drunk (with water sometimes :wink: ) and the packaging was not designed for long term storage. I'll bet even the Aberlour a'bunadh with it's heavy wax seal leaks a little.

Drink them while you can because if you don't somebody else will and most likely with Coca Cola.

Are you on good terms with the angels? They're the only ones who can help you. I would expect a half-evaporated bottle to be bloody awful, and beyond all hope. It's a total loss for the shopkeeper, so maybe you can convince him to open it and give you a sample.
