'tis a wee bonnie Scotch Ping.
Thought that part of the requirement to be a scotch is to be aged at least ten years.
Since the three cases were only discovered approximately five years ago and then analyzed; how long has the new stuff been aged?
£81.63 + VAT tax (0.0) + Delivery Charge to u.S. £32.00 (1) or 38.00 for 2 bottles.
Scotch Whiskey tastes very VERY bad no matter how old or expensive it is.
I call bs - no real scotsman would have left 3 cases of whisky behind.
This was on the History Channel a few months ago. Very interesting show.
Road trip! I mean, boat and dog-sled trip!
What is the F equivalent of -32C? I can’t remember the formula. Thanx.
What a waste. I'm an historical preservationist, but this is ridiculous. Good thing I don't drink anymore, or I'd be organizing a salvage expedition.

Those Who Dared: Stories from the golden age of exploration
Phenol and related phenolic compounds show up in Scotch whiskies, referred to “peaty,”
Highland Single malts are not described as peaty, generally. But to protect the rest of you from that licorice crap, I am willing to “take one for the team”.
Send me a case of it, and I will thoroughly test it, and tell you if it is too “peaty”. If it is, I will dispose of the rest of it for you all.
