Mackinlay's Shackleton Blended Malt Scotch Whisky

Description

"Spicy young ginger gives way to vanilla, black licorice, sweet smoke, and a touch of spearmint. Mellow and smooth on the palate with a marked minerality, it showcases fresh tropical fruit, sweetgrass, and brown spice anchored by a touch of smoke." 95 Points, 2018 Ultimate Spirits Challenge

This is another blended whisky from MacKinlay commemorating the Shackleton misadventures.

"One hundred ten years after the Nimrod expedition, blender Richard Paterson’s adventurous marriage of over 20 Highland malts brings fresh green fruits, manuka honey, vanilla, banana muffin, cantaloupe, fresh herbs, spice, and a wisp of smoke. Refreshing palate of green melon, light honey, vanilla, cinnamon, cooked apple, and gooseberry, becoming sour. More complexity on the finish: spice, smoke, cooked fruits, and chalky Sweethearts candies. Pair with mature prosciutto." 90 Points
