Default Whisky Packaging Keep or Throw?

My whisky sits in a nice dark cool cupboard. Not on display or in sunlight. Is there any point keeping whisky in its box or just have the bottles?

I am not wanting to keep boxes for any reason other than if the whisky should stay in the box until finished.

The bottles kept dark and cool as you stated, I don't see the packaging as necessary.

Having said that, I do keep mine in the box/sleeve. My whisky is kept in a small closet, cool and out of light, but whisky isn't the only thing in the closet. We're occasionally going in there for other things, so the sleeves give a little added protection.

If the packaging is fancy I keep it.

I'm with John in that I tend to keep the boxes to prevent bottles from hitting each other, but if I had a bar set up, I'd just throw them out.

I save the boxes for when I throw the empty bottle out. 2 birds with one throw. No double handling of refuse here.
Keep my opens unboxed in a dark cabinet at floor level.
