    I plan to buy a bottle of whiskey for my birthday, which is exactly 9 days from today. I want to buy the whiskey now, because it is on promotion. However, I hesitate, because I don't want it to expire or go bad in some way until my birthday. If I keep it unsealed and stored in my closet for 9 days, nothing will happen to it, right? Also, will the warm summer temperature in my room affect it in some way? I also have to mention that the bottle of whiskey is also closed in a metal tube, which I hope is good. Thank you.

    Wiskey, opened or not, keeps nearly forever. Just keep it some place coolish and out of direct sun.

    and... :party:

    Thank you! But like I said, the room is not cool, but a little bit warm instead. Warm to the degree that I use a fan to keep it cool. I can keep it in a dark place, however, I can't keep it out of the warm room temperature. Are you sure that nothing will happen to it?

    Don't worry about it. Put it under your bed. You have a greater chance of opening it before your birthday then it going bad. A long time whiskey drinker..

    I wouldn't worry too much about temperature, certainly, a fan isn't necessary. It's not like it's going to spoil like milk or something. Just keep it tightly closed so nothing evaporates.

    I wouldn't leave it in the trunk of your car for several 90 degree days in a row, but your room will be fine. I have a bottle of 21-year-old The Glenlivet that a friend gave me for Christmas in 2010. (It was a special gift since I had been laid off.) I promised I wouldn't open it until I got my dream job, and it's still sitting on my counter. Don't worry, and enjoy. BTW - What type are you getting?

    I just bought it. It is a 12 year-old Glenfiddich Single Malt Scotch whisky:

    I will probably store it in my wardrobe or laid under my bed.

    One of favorites. The scotch will be fine. Hopefully you will enjoy it. If not I'm sure I can find a good home for it.

    I'll keep it for you, if you want to be safe.

    It's generally more comfortable to get laid on top of the bed, but whatever makes you happy. :D

    That's a good friend.

    I couldn't tell you, a bottle of whiskey normally doesn't last a week in my house...

    You could put it in your closet for the next 10 years and it will be just fine.

    Just don't try it with chocolate milk ;)

    Yes - it will go bad - you need to search for 50 year or older whisky and send it all to me. ;)

    lol 12 year old scotch isn't going to go bad in 9 days!!

    Alcohol only goes bad in your stomach, after you've put too much in there...
