What would you do with these whiskeys?

I couldn't accept this.
Something to consider is that quite a few people have said this unevenness will subside over time. I have no personal experience with this sort of QC issue, but I've heard others in the past claim the opposite -- that unevenness can get more pronounced over time.
My stance with new shoe QC or fit issues is to assume they will never change.
