    World's Oldest Whisky

    Aisla T'Orten 105 Year Old Bottling

    "This needs little introduction. The world’s oldest whisky, and the only
    bottle of whisky ever made at the Aisla T’Orten distillery in the Highlands.
    This was distilled on the 17th February 1906, and the distillery was
    tragically destroyed on its first day of operation after a catastrophic
    fire. The whisky has lain, resting in a sherry butt for 105 years, and
    it was bottled on the 8th March 2011."

    I believe the date of its release is significant.

    I have heard the Nik Metop Distillery in Michigan is doing the actual bottling.
    Hope is subversive, for it limits the grandiose pretensions of the present by calling into existence the possibility of something better.

    D'oh!
    Does it still count as a Fool's if it's a day late?!
    They went to pretty extravagant measures to
    create such a detailed page & history.

    This totally got me, I even replayed it to another board and forwarded it to my friends before realizing my folly
