Any comments or ideas as to what has happened will be most welcome. Thanks in advance.
First off, Les ... if "Bubbles" is in your whisky, send him back to the trailer park! (Canuckistani humour)
Secondly, I've only espied a "string of pearls" in my CS whisky when I've covered the glass mouth and given it a shake or two. As this Yamazaki is bottled at 43% maybe the CS bubble effect is there, however, due to the length of endurance of the bubble effect, I suspect that the actual viscosity or surface tension of the product is causing this anomaly.
(by the by, for the rest of the world, "Fairy liquid" is a type of dish soap sold in the UK - not something offensive)
