A friend of mine works at McMurdo. Wonder if he's up for some late night sneaking around?:)

Just kidding.

But I would LOVE to have a shot of that scotch. Wow.

If it's being preserved for it's historic significance,what significan good will it do or serve being put back under the floors and refrozen again? Granted,they might be able to replicate the scotch blend,but jeeze,at least keep a few bottles preserved in a whiskey maker's museum somewhere.Not necessarily to drink but to be able to appreciate the physical antiquity and history associated with it.You cannot appreciate history if it's buried under ice.

Sir Shackleton must have been a real Nimrod to leave that case of scotch behind.

Take a bottle, drink it, put the rest back. Every 100 years, pop a cork to the new century. NEVER waste Scotch!

Why don't they auction it off with the proceeds going to a charity?
