This Is How You Properly Store Your Whiskey
How many times have you experienced your whiskey going bad? Have you observed mold, a foul smell, or discoloration after storing it over time? Or tasted it and had a milder impact on your palate than before? If you have, chances are your whiskey might not have been stored properly.
Like any other liquor, whiskey must be stored properly in order to preserve its true quality and taste. However, it entails a different storage process. The shelf life of whiskey depends on whether or not it has yet to be opened. The taste of whiskey in a bottle that has been opened does not change as much as wine does; nonetheless, it will change over time. Whiskey in an unopened bottle is more likely to retain its taste even after a long time. But whatever the case may be, certain steps should be followed if you do not want to let your precious whiskey go to waste.

If unopened and stored properly, even old whiskey can still taste the same, even though so much time has passed by. Here’s how you can store it properly

If you have changed your mind and are suddenly dying to taste that aged whiskey, and decided to open the bottle, there is a way to properly store the remaining whiskey and minimize the changes in taste and quality.
That precious unopened bottle of whiskey which has been finally handed down to you by your great-grandfather can even be passed on to your future grandson if you store it properly. And if you do decide to have a taste, you can still keep it for as much as a year before the quality starts to deteriorate if preserved properly.
