However, I'm now aware that Scotch oxidizes over time, and since I'm not a heavy or even regular drinker I fear I may not be able to outrun the oxidation process (especially should I ever reach the half-way mark of the bottle).
I've been told clean marbles are a good way to prevent oxidation (though I'm slightly worried the marbles may affect the scotch), but is there anything else I can do to help it last for at least a year or two without the taste lessening or becoming affected?
Personally, I wouldn't be too concerned - especially if you're planning to drink up the whisky in a year or two.
I have a few more questions though: I know you're not supposed to have the bottle in direct sunlight, but what about dim sunlight? In the place I'm keeping it there's a tiny Window that's covered by a thin curtain. The room is fairly dim, but some sunlight does come through. I'll be mostly keeping it in its case, but do you think this will matter? Do artificial lights have any effect on the contents? (You know like light bulbs and such)
Also, how would you guys recommend drinking it? Room temperature, frozen, or on the rocks?

Experiment and see how you like it.
Me? I like it at room temeprature.
I saw nitrogen canisters in the grocery store tonight, for about nine bucks, in the wine department. That will go a long way to prevent oxidation.
