Does whiskey go off after its been open for a bit?


#1

Honest question. I’ve a half empty bottle left from the Christmas morning. Will it go off, and if so, how long would it be good to drink for? Sorry but I’ve no idea.


#2

It’ll be grand for years mate but drinking half a bottle of whiskey was not the way to start Christmas Day.


#3

Ah it was the fourth bottle (litre). I had help though.


#4

If it’s a very good bottle ( single malt or similiar) then drink in the next few months. If it’s a bog standard bottle then don’t worry, it will last for years.


#5

Jameson. We had an Irish coffee party for the friends that were about. Some would say a waste of both whiskey and coffee but I love it on a Christmas morning. Thanks a million. No rush so.

Dont let that stop you nailing it tonight Flatty!


#7

Had a rough enough time at work these past few weeks so I’m off the ale , or the spirits at least until I’m right. Can’t drink on a school night anyway.


#8

Yeah you’re better off getting your homework done.


#9

#10

Crested 10. Not bad.

:see_no_evil:


#12

Is this stuff any good?


#13

Only one way to find out I suppose


#14

True, I have a 12 year old Jameson there that’s already open that I have to finish off first though


#15

I got a 12 year bottle of Middleton when the eldest was born. That was 15 years ago and it’s still untouched. How it escaped I don’t know.

:smiley: save it for when Limerick bring home Liam?


#17

Fuck. Twill be buried with me so


#18

Not a whiskey question but how far out of date would a case of Bud need to be before fucking it away? Can I offload it to visitors over the holidays when it’s best before date was Sept 16?

Give them to the in laws

They wouldn’t touch the alcohol.
