That special drink


Recommended Posts

If you have that bottle that you just do not want to open.....how best do you store it for long term? Or until that special occasion pops-up that desires the best that life can offer?


after you have opened and sampled that rum how long can you keep it? occasionally having a glass how would you then store it?

drink it before it goes bad or loses its touch but how long is that?

questions, questions questions

Store your rum like other things of value, in a cool dark place. High temp won't kill the spirit but it may make it evaporate through a seal that has shrunk due to the higher temp. I like to make sure the cap is tight and then store rum on it's side.

After about half the bottle is gone you may notice that the spirit has oxidized and you will loose some of the lighter alcohols and esters, less full flavor.

When there is less than 25% of the bottle left, I start to drink it up.
