My #1 Rule to keep my whiskies from oxidizingJuly 22nd, 2011
That’s what happened this past Saturday night when I noticed this bottle of 1974 Longrow getting that low. As you can see, our mission was accomplished!
My #2 Rule is to use an inert gas spray to displace the oxygen in my open bottles. (I use a a product called Private Preserve.) It’s probably more important than my #1 Rule, but it’s not nearly as much fun. That’s why it’s #2.
These two practices combined work really well for me. I have not encountered any problems at all.
