Cold due to Power Outage
Due to the Oct snowstorm in the northeast, we were without power for 3 days, during which time the temp in the house dipped to the low forties.
Will the temp swing from normal (about 68), then down 25 degrees and then back up have a detrimental effect on the quality of the scotches? There are 4 bottles, all partially used. They range from maybe 1-2 drams left in one, about half in 2 of them and 2/3 in the other.
I haven't had a chance to have any as we're just settling back in but wanted to get some thoughts.
Having just replaced the refrigerated and frozen food, I'd hate to replace the scotch now!
There is only one way to find out for certain...
I wouldn't worry about it. Whisky is not as fragile as wine. You might notice some clouding in any bottles that are not chill filtered. It should go away back at room temperature.
Shackleton, Amundsen, etc didn't protect their whisky from the extreme freezing temperatures of the Antarctic. They warmed it up to drink!
