I once kept a bottle open for over a year and when I tried it then, the whisky's profile was ruined. It went bitter. It was a nice whisky too, the most expensive one I had bought in my whisky journey so far. It also helps me stay disciplined in drinking and finishing a bottle before making another purchase. It's easy for me to buy more than I can drink in a year, so I only allow myself to replace what's finished with a new bottle.

anywhere from 10-15 usually and I also take 10cl out as soon as the bottle is opened for the years to come.
For lower abv bottle I also decant when the level is a quarter to a third in the bottle, 60% stuff lasts a lot stronger for obvious reasons and many high strength malts benefit from a little air. _________________ Pour me a glass please.
