Mackinlay's Shackleton Blended Malt Scotch Whisky


Quite delightful.  Smells of vanilla, ginger, and dutch apple with a floral hint.  First taste is of muscovado sugar and honey, dried cherries, apricots, mandarin orange and pineapple with a sweet dark chocolate glaze and finishes with a very light (very light) peat smoke.  Absolutely delightful.

This is patterned after Mackinlay’s Rare-Old Highland Malt Whisky taken on Earnest Shackleton's 1907 expedition to Antarctica.  In 2007 several bottles of the Mackinlay's Scotch were found at Shakelton's base camp, perfectly preserved.  A master brewer then tried to recreate the elixir... and, according to accounts, succeeded pretty darned well.  I can't testify to that, only to the excellence achieved.  
This is a great "get together" Scotch... good for deep discussions on the transdimensional implications of warp drive with a great cigar or pipe and good low background music from Brahms or Beethoven.
... and world peace...

Oh yeah,  and it's cheap, too...
Opinion,untempered by fact,is ignorance.

There are some who do not fear death... for they are more afraid of not really living
