A few months ago, I purchased a number of sample bottles from LFW.
I have since occasionally saved 10cl samples of whiskies that were special - or that I just thought I would'nt be replacing any time soon.
(And sometimes also just to cheat a little... presto - the bottle is empty - now I can open a new one )
I do my best to fill the sample bottles to the rim, but in some there are a few millimeters of air in the neck.
My question is: I know about deterioration in normal bottles, but I'm a little unsure on what will happen to the samples if stored over a period of several months - or even longer.
Has anybody here any experience to share? Will the whisky deteriorate and how fast will the process work?
