Heat/Cold

Does heat or cold (outside temperatures) affect Jack Daniels, vodka, etc. different kinds of alcohol, meaning difference in flavor? I have some of this stuff since Christmas and had to keep outside on breezeway. I poured some jack daniels in glass and flavor doesn't seem too good. Do I have to pour it out? Or is it safe to drink?

Shame to let this stuff go to waste just because don't have room in the kitchen.

Thanks

I keep vodka in the freezer; with the high alcohol content, it doesn't freeze, but it's ice-cold when you want it. You could probably do the same with JD. As GRK said, heat and light isn't very good for it.

Heat will ruin Jack Daniels. Out of curiosity, why did you HAVE to keep it out on the breezeway?

Meh, I don't think that it would be harmful to drink. The taste might be screwy, but after 3 of them, who cares?!:-) Heat i don't think is your enemy as it is aged in heat, and cold, with open air aging rooms. The different climates help develop the character of the spirit. SUN, on the other hand, can do weird things.

And if you dump it, I will report you for alcohol abuse.

Crazy

Once again you all don't think I AM crazy for the questions I ask! Thanks for understanding. Just that this kitchen I have is so small and seems to be getting smaller. Making room for any kind of liquor is out of the question that is why I put it on the breezeway. Such a shame to throw out so guess like TATT said would be alcohol abuse or use for something other than drinking. I just tried some and it doesn't even taste like Jack Daniels. Very weak.

Thanks for your thoughts and understanding.

just because it tastes "weak" does not mean the proof has changed much.......was said bottle opened or factory sealed? If it was sealed, then you might just have some really smooth forced aged whik'key!

And if the kitchen is that small, I would recommend consuming faster
