100 year-old Whisky is Discovered

30 year-old single malt whisky can cost an individual as much as $200. I wonder what a bottle of 100 year-old whisky would cost then. Well three bottles of whisky that were abandoned in the Antarctic ice has been sent back to Scotland and its original bottler for testing. Found among the belongings of explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton and the British Antarctic Expedition of 1907, the bottles were apparently completely frozen in the minus 30 degree temperatures yet the whisky was still in liquid form. It is believed the whisky was bottled somewhere around 1896 or 1897. Analysts will apparently spend the next few weeks examining the whisky even tasting it to see how well it preserved over the last century, what a tough job that must be.
