Ceramics
75% full original closed

For ceramics and nontransparent bottles we estimate the filling level. Of course all items are original closed.

75% full means:
The contents of the item consists of
75% Whisky and 25% "air".

The contents may change in case of evaporation and differ from the original quality.

Additional capsule

Some collectors use additional capsules to prevent evaporation. In this case we leave it on the bottle.
