watch this vid, the guy knows what he's talking about.

edit: fwiw i would more find it more probable this would happen with, as he said, an independant bottler, because the company size probably creates a situation where 1 or 2 people check quality and if they have an off day it could happen that one bottle slips through the net.

edit: if you liked his fix in 85, watch 86 it has an awesome winter scotch recipe that i'm dying to try one time if i have some whiskey to spare :P.
