"Rarely has a blend caused as much excitement as this one, but with good reason. This is also known as the Shackleton whisky, and is a recreation of the whisky abandoned in the Antarctic by explorer Ernest Shackleton more than 100 years ago. It has lemon, spring blossom, and wafts of smoke on the nose. The taste is full and citrusy, with peat and pepper in attendance. Beautifully balanced and outstanding, but there are just 50,000 bottles, so snap it up." Malt Advocate 92 points Dave Broom, whisky expert, rates Richard Paterson's recreation of Shackleton's whisky as sublime, "Well-balanced with soft fruit characters and a touch of smoke. Close to the original." By the way, Dave Broom tasted both the Shackleton and the Mackinlay.
