FAQs about single malt

If you have an unopened bottle of single malt, you should store it in a cool and dry place that's out of the sunlight. Placing it in direct sunlight can cause the color to lighten. Fluctuating temperatures can cause the liquid in the bottle to expand, eventually damaging the bottle and cork.

Keep the bottle upright, so the alcohol doesn't degrade the cork. Unopened bottles can last indefinitely, so you don't need to worry about the alcohol going bad, but the cork might begin to disintegrate after a while. However, you should also care about the cork and keep it moist. About once or twice a year, tilt the bottle horizontally, so liquid soaks the cork to keep it fresh. Make sure to put the bottle back in the upright position, though.

Unlike wine, single malt whiskey doesn't age in its bottle. For instance, a 15-year-old bottle will remain one, even 50 years from now. Opened bottles of single malt are best consumed with two months, if possible. This isn't a hard and fast rule, but it's recommended because oxidation begins the minute you open the bottle. The flavor compounds begin to change, and you might notice the whiskey doesn't taste the same.
