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?
But be carefull when it isnt as full as you describe. I had a 30yo Ardbeg miniature I drank on one occasion about half of it, saving the other half for a later date, as I prefer to write notes based on at least 2 tasting sessions. It wasnt much later at all (a month?) and the sample had gone all stale and flat, yuk!
So from my experience: you have to be extra carefull with miniatures when they are not filled up max....
