Description

The Mackinlay's Rare Old Highland Malts are re-creations of the original malt whisky shipped to Antarctica in 1907 by the explorer Ernest Shackleton to fortify his 'Nimrod' expedition.

The story of how several wooden crates of this precious whisky were abandoned to the Antarctic winter in early 1909, then rediscovered over a century later, is one that celebrates the enduring spirit of both man and malt.

This edition is an exact replica of the whisky left in Antarctica by Sir Ernest Shackleton during his Antarctic expedition between 1907 and 1909. The whisky was recreated down to the very last detail by Whyte and Mackay’s blender extraordinaire, Richard Paterson. The final replica bottle of Mackinlay’s blend contains whiskies from Speyside, the Island, and the Highlands, and the recipe even includes some very rare 1983 Glen Mhor!

Tasting Notes

Colour - Light. Honey, straw gold with shimmering highlights.

Nose: Delicate aromas of crushed apple, pear and fresh pineapple kicks things off as the spirit itself is exciting and vibrant with attractive notes of oak shavings that release hints of buttery vanilla, creamy caramel and nutmeg.

Palate: Harmonious and exhilarating, throughout there are whispers of gentle bonfire smoke which slowly give way to spicy rich toffee, treacle and pecan nuts. These enticing flavours linger lovingly on the palate but are soon combined by a sensual, complex array of creme brulee, orange rind and freshly baked bread.

Overall: A remarkable whisky full of tantalising taste sensations which truly rewards the palate.
