Whiskey and Bourbon are ideally stored in the same temperature range as wine, only standing as the higher alcohol content will deteriorate and taint the flavor of the whisky. While common consensus on exact temperature is hard to find, all experts agree consistent cooler, cellar like temperatures, and darkness are best for aging your whiskey, scotch or bourbon.
“Ideal conditions range between 15 to 20 degrees Celsius, (59-66 degrees Fahrenheit). One should be careful however to avoid temperature fluctuation when storing whisky (no more than 3 – 4 ºC within the above mentioned range).
This is because with every fluctuation, air-oxygen can flow in the bottle, causing damage to its valuable content. To ensure the best possible temperature avoid having the whisky closet near sources of heat.”1
“Generally speaking, it’s best to keep whisky stored at around 60°-65°F (15°-18°C). The same goes for nosing whisky as well. The best location for storing whisky is in a cellar, or “cellar conditions.””2
