Hey berto,

Thanks - means a lot coming from you. Added a few more tidbits from the SB.com write-up, too. Wink

Thought I'd ask this here.

I picked up two bottles of the latest ECBP. So I grabbed the release 10, I have had in storage since spring of 16. The cork had shrunk so much it doesn't seal the bottle. The plastic holding the top on was in place and there isn't a noticeable amount evaporated, a little hard to tell due to the fact I spilled a little taking off the plastic from around the top.

I store unopen bottles in my basement which is cool year round.

Just curious has anyone had a cork shrink this much in just 16-18 months. I suspect it was a bad cork when I bought it.

Should I seal the top on with saran wrap (wrapping tape around the top seems like a bad idea)

If I have a cork issue I've only ever used a replacement cork (usually from another bottle of the same whiskey) and treated them as open bottles, assuming it hasn't affected the flavor. I've never tried to (re)seal it and keep it as backstock.
