Hmmm...I had always had a very different perspective, in that I always thought that corks were *better* precisely because they seem to keep more oxygen out (and so more whisky in). But you guys are making me reconsider my thoughts on the matter...

As far as I am now concerned, it's a win-win situation. I like corks and feel comfortable with them and now, thanks to your posts, I seem to like screw-caps. The whisky was never an issue...so the conclusion is that whisky is good and capping it with something is good.

Therefore, it's all good.
