What's the worst that could happen:
"Exposure to excessive levels of lead can cause brain damage; affect a child’s growth; damage kidneys; impair hearing; cause vomiting, headaches, and appetite loss; and cause learning and behavioral problems. In adults, lead can increase blood pressure and can cause digestive problems, kidney damage, nerve disorders, sleep problems, muscle and joint pain, and mood changes." The latter would seem to normally be associated with alcohol consumption.
Now - to add to the BS quotient - perhaps the phenols resulting antioxidant capacity would help to offset the lead; otherwise there's always chelation therapy!!!
After all - you are talking a rare dram with a wee history!!! Dave.

[B]Thunderball, remember the make tasting notes available here in WWBBS immediately after consuming a dram or two of that whisky. So that the description of the taste among you won't move into history ... Of course, if you manage to survive, remember to inform that too here, so that others can taste it without taking risks.
Will do, Ize, but it may be some time yet. Given the history of this particular bottle, I'm waiting for a special occasion to open it.
If you can't wait - Robbie Burns B'day is next Saturday (the 25th). You wouldn't have the burden of an obsessed Canadian at your doorstep that night, as we're hosting our annual Burns Dinner then - for 20 of our closest friends (and 20+ Scotches probably!!!).
P.S. - Our province's Premier can't make our Burns Dinner this year ...something about giving up drinking...go figure!!!
