Storing Scotch In My Apartment/Closet Temp

Postby dman777 » Mon Apr 15, 2013 6:11 pm

I live in Texas in a 1 room efficiency. I stocked up on Lagavulin Distler Edition bottles(4) and I also have the special 21 year old release. I store them in my closet. When I am gone I keep my apt. thermostat at 81 degrees. Will this be ok for storing my scotch?

Also, sometimes I leave the light bulb on in my closet. Would this create extra heat that could mess up my scotch?

Ultimately store them upright, out of sunlight, and at a steady temperature range and you'll have no problems.

Honestly, the temperature won't matter much. Think about American whiskies, which are generally not temperature controlled during maturation. They taste fine.

Just keep it out of direct sunlight, upright, and turn the bottles over occasionally so that your cork doesn't dry up.
