Whyte & Mackay // Scotland
Mackinlay’s The Journey is a 2nd edition blended malt released to coincide with Tim Jarvis’ re-enactment of the Shackleton’s epic journey to Antarctica. Richard Patterson once again has been called on to create the blend which again uses malts from Glen Mhor and heavily peated Dalmore in addition to others including Glenfarclas, Ben Nevis, Mannochmore, Tamnavulin, Jura, Aultmore, Fettercairn, and Pulteney.
Blended MaltComprised of malted whisk(e)y from two or more distilleries; aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
"The whisky is pale yellow and very fluid in the glass. The nose is pleasant and slightly buttery with touches of sand. The body opens with a touch of cedar and gentle notes of allspice. It is slightly briny and rich with malt. The finish is peppery and filled with dried Lapsang Suchong tea and aged cigars. "
