Buffalo Trace is one of my favourite whiskies. Last week I had some in a bar from a bottle that was 80% full and it tasted pretty average.

I figured the bottle was too new to have spoiled. The whisky was very warm when it was poured, as a consequence of having been stored under bright lights and I wondered if this cooking had spoiled it in some way.

My friend had a rum and that tasted fine.

Has anyone else noticed this ?
