It might be due to extreme temperature variations but It should be more likely to notice evaporation in such conditions...
Are You sure the bottles never took blows?

Now I'm beginning to wonder if I should check my whole collection for cracks in the glass.

Although I can honestly say that this is the first time I heard of anything like this.

Sorry Lambda, I'm sitting here giggling now as I read your last post as choice (Do you have kids, or do you have pets?).

Glass is pretty stable unless it is exposed to temperture variations, and even then it is still pretty stable, windows would be useless otherwise. My guess is that they are a bad lot of bottles. The fact that they are from 2006 supports this as well.

C_I

prob just bad bottles.

with all the cost cutting at distilleries these days in an attempt to drive up profits, the thickness in the glass in the bottles is somthing that they may have tried to reduce.

we did simiar things with somthing with a company i worked for a couple of years ago.
