Manufacturer Description

In the early years of the 20th century, Sir Ernest Shackleton led one of the most famous expeditions to the Antarctic, overcoming tremendous obstacles to ensure that all of his men returned home safely. Shackleton ordered 25 cases of Mackinlays Rare Old Highland Malt Whisky to take on his expedition of 1907. In 2007, eleven intact bottles containing this perfectly preserved whisky were recovered from under the ice beneath Shackletons base camp. Inspired by Shackletons story, Master Blender, Richard Paterson, has recreated this lost whisky in a personal and deeply felt project. Building on his recreation of Mackinlays Rare Old Highland Malt, combining the best Highland malt whiskies and allowing them to marry over a long period, Paterson has created an enigmatic blended malt with a dash of body and a whisper of smoke. With complex notes of vanilla, honey and orchard fruits, the whisky has real warmth and depth, much like Shackleton himself.

Product Features

Inspired by adventure and the result of years of fine-tuning, this is a premium blended malt scotch that's bold, rich and imbued with a whisper of smoke. Shackleton Whisky has a rich and rewarding taste with an initial wave of treacle toffee, molasses, demerara sugar and sweet sultanas, followed by glazed pineapple, freshly baked bread, mango cake and hot mulled wine, finishing with a sprinkling of Pontefract cake, praline chocolate and oolong tea Nose : Buttery vanilla, toffee apple, brioche with marmalade, followed by cinnamon spice, cooked apples, banana bread and ginger cake, finishing with a hint of gentle smoke, salted bananas, liquorice and crème Brule Colour : Dazzling amber with flashes of gold
