Is this a good thing?

Continuing the food and drink theme of the last post, I've just read, in this week's on-line Popular Science weekly summary, how Scottish scientists have recreated the hundred year old whisky Ernest Shackleton drank. 

Is nothing sacred?

In my opinion, part of the lure of enjoying Scotland's liquid treasures is the inherent impermanence of their availability.  

Why are we all so obsessive about recreating our past. What's next? The Black Death -oh, that'll be fun!
