Personally, I would not have opened the seal and uncorked it. Just get another bottle and leave it sealed. And, of course, enjoy the rest of the open bottle.
If you must keep that one, seal it with wax. That's probably your best bet at a good seal for the long term.
Here's another idea for you. Buy a bunch of whisky as it's released that was distilled in his birth year.
