100-year-old Scotch pulled from frozen crate

Full story: TwinCities.com

A crate of Scotch whisky that was trapped in Antarctic ice for a century was finally opened Friday - but the heritage dram won't be tasted by whisky lovers because it's being preserved for its historical significance.

Why is this in the "Weird News" section? Sure, it's a bit unusual, but cold preserves things; it's not all that "weird" of a story. If they want to find weird news, just look at almost any story from Wisconsin.

I believe 'aging' stops once the liquor is removed from the barrel. Once it is in the bottle/flask/jug/paper sack it is just hooch. Possibly excellent hooch, but it stopped aging over a century ago. Now it is just old whiskey.

But judging by its journey it is indeed rare whiskey.
