Letting your whisky breathe...
True, it could be said for some Scotch also....I had a 1950's Black & White
that seemed to be losing a little too much of an angel's share for my taste,
so I popped it open and had a shot or two.
Wasn't too horribly impressed, and went on to something more to my taste.
A few days later, I offerd to share a whicky tasting experiance with a friend
interested in learning about whisky...so I shared a few with him to get an idea
of the variances, and included the Balck & White I had opened, In trying it for
the second time myself, I'd have to say that it had lost some of the unpleasent
'sharpness' it had when I had first opened it.
Personally, I'm going to open a few bottles, and see how they differ in taste
after a series of time periods.
