At that price, everyone loves single malt.

The new was a little richer or deeper in flavour but there was not a lot in it. A third taste some minutes later and again I couldn't tell any difference.

So what can I take away from this. Hmm... Seaworthy has a much more worthy palate than Wot but just to be sure, I will (in the future) make sure I don't leave any bottles almost finished. Will just have to ensure they are properly emptied as soon as they are less than half full

Thanks for the idea SWL
Wotname, I have an alternative suggestion following your published results:
Just make sure you always have more than two sips .
