While reading one of the Whisky magazines this month I noticed an article on the possibility of bottle aging of whiskies. I can see how an opened bottle of spirits, exposed to air might interact with elements in the air to produce differing flavors. I can even see how alcohol can escape past an older cork to lower a proof level after a number of years. I can see how light, heat or cold might alter flavors and colors in whiskys. What I cannot see is how a sanatized bottle, properly sealed, filled with virgin spirit can possibly allow variables inside that would induce continued aging inside a glass container.
