Crafted from over 20 of the finest highland single malts, this blended malt is based on Mackinlay's Rare Old Highland Malt, a whisky discovered under the ice of the Antarctic, left behind from Sir Ernest Shackleton's 1907 expedition to the South Pole. Eleven bottles of Mackinlay's were discovered in 2007, ten of which were in perfect condition. Whyte & Mackay's Master Blender, Richard Paterson, then spent weeks in the laboratory nosing, tasting and deconstructing the components in order to recreate the lost malt. Using this recreation as a foundation, Paterson then built upon the blend to create a new Scotch with a real warmth and depth of character, much like Shackleton himself. Note: If you add an engraving to your order, the message will be displayed on the back of this bottle. Read More

Hamish Says...

Our Hamish has had a sip and jotted down his thoughts.

Nose:  vanilla, toffee apple and honey-covered brioche with marmalade before cinnamon, banana bread and ginger cake, with wisps of smoke and liquorice.

Palate: treacle and molasses running over sweet sultanas, followed by glazed pineapple, mango cake and mulled wine.

Finish: Pontefract cakes, praline chocolates and Oolong tea complete the enigmatic blend.
