But whisky is best tasting at room temperature than colder, and since Glenmorangie is an single malt scotch, it is best served at room temperature, and there would be no point paying extra for an single malt if you're going to drink it colder than room temperature.

Depends what you mean by overheated. I don't think the typical temperatures to be found in a habited building would effect a whisky so don't worry.

Doesn't the light go off when you close the door?

To be more exact, I find that the flavour of a colder whisky is 'selectively masked' when compared to the same spirit served at around room temperature. More subtle notes (both aromatically and flavour-wise) will be suppressed. However, primary characteristics (such as prominent fruit-like tastes and viscosity) can sometimes be selectively highlighted. The same phenomenon can often occur when serving a whisky 'on the rocks'.
In short, if you want to experience the full aromatic and flavour range a whisky has to offer, serving it cold isn't the best idea.
Also the fridge in question is one of those mini fridges that has no light.
Maybe I should just keep it in another room....not sure.
