    Angels Envy popped cork in trunk

    So I was in Houston a couple of weeks ago to attend the Astros/Angels series. I stopped by Spec's and picked up 2 bottles of Angel's Envy Rye. I put them in my trunk and sort of forgot about them till I got home the next day.
    Well it gets hot in Texas and my trunk must have been over 125 degrees.
    When I opened the trunk to get my bottles out I noticed the sweet smell of the bourbon. I had both bottles inside a soft sided cooler. One of the bottle's cork had popped off, thankfully it was sitting straight up so I did not lose any juice. The other bottle was fine. Angels Envy only uses a paper seal on top of the cork, so it did not take much pressure to tear that off.
    So I did learn a lesson, keep my bourbon cool and out of a hot trunk.

    You are more fortunate than I, my car/trunk smelled like Bourbon for weeks.

    Same here Squire but it was beer in my case. Got pulled over and the cops weren't too impressed.
    I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.

    Had a customer leave a Highland Park 18 in his motorcycle saddlebag all day. Cork popped up and it leaked everywhere. He said the smell is quite nice but it was an expensive air freshener.

    This happened to me recently with an Angel's Envy bottle for TomH. About a third of it spilled in the trunk.

    Re: Angels Envy popped cork in trunk

    I've had similar things happen in my garage where I store some of my bottles. It's only been already opened ones or wax sealed ones that have popped on me. I hope you enjoyed the series. Watching minor league baseball can be really fun.

    You mean you guys don't transport your whiskey bottles in a car seat?
