Mackinlay's Original Blended Scotch
Mackinlay's // Scotland, Scotland
Named for the brand of whisky carried by (and left by) Ernest Shackleton on his failed attempt to reach the South Pole in 1907-1909, this offering is a blend of Scottish malt and grain whiskies, all of which are at least 5 years old. Primarily based on malt from Glenkinchie in the Scottish Lowlands, this is the entry level bottling from Whyte & MacKay's in Glasgow, who also produces a recreation of the 1907 Scotch recovered from Antarctica after the expedition returned to Britain. We encourage you to take a few swigs before you look too deeply into the story behind Shackleton himself. Bottled at 40% ABV.
BlendedComprised of both single malt(s) and single grain(s) often from many different distilleries; if Scotch or Irish must be aged for at least three years in oak barrels; Irish may include single pot still whiskey in the blend.
