Expedition launched to uncork 100-year-old Scotch from Antarctic ice
ELLINGTON, New Zealand - On the rocks . . . and nice aged! A New Zealand team will be using precision drills to free some 100-year-old Scotch from the Antarctic ice, where it's been chilling since British explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton left it there during his disastrous 1909 expedition.

That's what I thought too until I found out that the coolest part of that expedition is the temperature. Even though the bottles might very well be the most valuable Scotch on the planet, they are only taking samples and must leave most of it for historical preservation under international BS law, believe it or not. I was following this story but it is going to suck.
