Mackinlay’s Shackleton Whisky – Journey Edition

by Oliver Klimek on December 19, 2012

47.3%


My Tasting Notes:

Colour: Bright gold
Nose: Smoke from a camp fire with faint hints of tar but also a bit grassy, vanilla, grapefruit zest, hints of honey and apples, ginger and black pepper.
Palate: Mild but noticeable peat, vanilla, liquorice, grapefruit and apples again, hints of wax and pepper.
Finish: Long, dry and slightly smoky.
Overall: This vatting intends to recreate an old-style Scotch. It manages in almost shy way, the flavours need time to develop on the palate. I only tasted the first version informally, so I can’t draw a proper comparison, I’m afraid.

Rating: 84/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
