Now, wait a minute. Are you pulling our collective legs here just a bit? If so, I salute you- you certainly elicited a gasp from me with your original posting
If not, I suggest you do return to the tried and true methods of warming in the hand or a splash of warm water over the glass.
Not that the topic of accelerated warming of whisky is without merit. I often take my drams to the office in my house. Potentially, I could run an infra-red connection from a warming plate to my pc. A motion sensor, triggered by placing a glencairn glass on the plate, would instruct the pc to remotely start the warming. An internal temperature gauge would turn off the plate as the bottom of the glass reached a pre-set temperature.

If you're going to warm it in a microwave (even only once) try chilling it in a snow drift. A'bunadh crisps up nicely at -42 below. Musky P.
The idea of someone holding their whisky bottle under their armpit for 5-10 minutes is quite hilarious, no wonder people think whisky drinkers are insane.

However, be very careful, as a cork malfunction can have dire consequence for the duvet
Flambeing should never be attempted in conjunction with the Oxter method, of course.
