    I'm amazed that you know this... Did you like leave an unfinished glass?? (horrors!)

    Obviously, I don't know the extent of the partial seal, but whiskey exposed to the air will deteriorate pretty quickly. How fast? An unfinished glass of whiskey, if it doesn't all evaporate, will be undrinkable the next day.

    Want to make a bet!! It made not be as good as the night before but it certainly is drinkable. Never waste bourbon. It will definitely "wake you in the morning". Usually I have poured myself another glass, which I realy don't need, and end up falling asleep before I get to finish that nightcap.
