(Newser) – You'll soon be able to crack open and swig down a can of… Scotch whisky? Liquor company Scottish Spirits Imports plans to introduce aluminum cans filled with Scotch to the US by February 1. Each can will contain 12 ounces of the 80-proof liquor, or about eight shots' worth, reports the Huffington Post. The retail price: $5 a can.

But cans, of course, can't be resealed. "The problem you run into is who is going to bang out 12 ounces in an evening?" Click for more.
