I've been trying not to buy any more Scotch...

...but at "just" £100 for a 700ml bottle, this is not something I'm going to pass up.

Now that's a healthy pour!If you're not in a clicking mood, 50,000 bottles have just been released of Whyte & Mackay's careful reproduction of the whisky from the bottles of Mackinlay's Rare Old Highland Malt that were left behind by Ernest Shackleton's Antarctic expedition over a century ago. Shackleton and his team abandoned several crates of the stuff when they fell short on their attempt to reach the South Pole, and three crates were unearthed (well, I guess "uniced") in 2007.

Richard Paterson, W&M's master blender, has spoken pretty glowingly of the stuff, so I'm really looking forward to tasting his recreation.
