Shackleton Blended Malt
Whyte & Mackay // highlands, Scotland
Inspired by the famous Shackleton's expedition story, Richard Paterson, Whyte & Mackay's master blender, has tried to recreate the lost whisky legend by combining different casks of "the best Highland malt whiskies" and allowing them to marry over a long period.
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.
"A pleasant nose boasting notes of cereals, lemon tart, and baked apples covered in creamy caramel sauce. This is followed by maple syrup and a touch of peat. The mouth is also very much on the malty side of the force with tea biscuits, sweet spices, pears, buttery vanilla, and underlying earthy tones. Overall, it's great value for money but it lacks a bit of depth. "
