    The actual pour, which was consumed immediately after pouring from the bottle stored in a very warm pantry.

    I pulled 85 degrees out of my hat; the temperature varied in that pantry but I figured that was about the average.

    Re: bourbons closest to rye

    I don't mean to derail the thread more, but while the whiskey itself can stand up to wide temp fluctuations you may want to keep an eye on those corks. I'm not convinced they will fare as well.

    Edit: in response to the guys storing bottles in the garage.
    I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.

    +1 - I personally have always heard that bourbon should be stored at room temperature for long periods. I don't know if the heat would change it, but I would imagine it would increase pressure, hurt the cork, and likely increase evaporation rates.

    I don't think the heat will hurt the whisky but I wouldn't store the cork closed bottles in it.

    Re: bourbons closest to rye

    Late to this......the James E. Pepper 1776 base product bourbon is 38% rye. I was gifted this bottle so I don't know the price off hand, but you can really pick up the rye on the nose and almost mistake it for a rye.

    the garage stored bottles are screw caps. The Dickel 9 is kept in the home cellar, not the garage.
    Think about how stupid the average person is.....then realize that half of them are more stupid than that.

    Y'all have convinced me. This weekends project will entail moving several cases of the bunker from the garage to the basement.

    I also need to write on each box what is inside.

    Label them 'books' in case the wife is watching.

    Or, perhaps, 'Book(er)s'.
