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.
