You're probably gonna have to just push it through and decant it.
This. Had same with a bottle of hazmat Stagg a few months back, despite tipping bottles monthly. Or you could pass it through a strainer and funnel back into bottle and cork it with a new cork..

I think I’m resigned to some form of this. Might hit up the Goog for opinions. I (stupidly, in hindsight) attempted using a corkscrew for one of the bottles. Failed comically.

Lol...
I was just going to suggest a corkscrew.
I've operated on a few rotted corks with a corkscrew with success.
You have to go slow and easy, and just pretend it's delicate brain surgery.

Excellent! Nutty, oaky, hint of raisin, some stone fruit. Super long finish even at low strength. I haven’t had many Dailuaine but I do remember their juice being high quality.

bought a 12 year cask strength of theirs recently - looking forward to trying it.

Flora and fauna series is still amazing. I had an Old Particular Dailuaine that really turned me on to what they are doing. The label says smoky finish but I dont buy it. Good stuff.

I can never find Flora and Fauna series, but have heard great things

Signatory never disappoints. Their mid nineties Glenlivets were excellent and quite affordable.

Heading to my spot tomorrow to pick up some gift bottles.
They have Octomore in @ $175.
I may not be able to resist...

I like Octomore, but man, the prices have gotten insane. Pretty sure I'd rather have three bottles of Laphroaig cask strength.


Which, by the way, is tonight's dram.

I want it!!
But that's kind of how I feel about Johnny Walker Blue vs 2.5 bottles of Green.
