Mackinlay’s Shackleton Rare Old Highland Malt The Journey

Antarctica? Pah. They have land beneath their ice and snow, that’s cheating. And all those penguins that a certain retailer seems to think have something to do with Christmas!? No, no, no. The Arctic, that’s the place for me. Polar bears, reindeer, narwhals and Father Pugmas. North side massive.

In fact, it wasn’t until Ranulph Fiennes popped by for tea a few years back that I gave much thought to the likes of Ernest Shackleton, who always seemed to have an unhealthy obsession with the wrong pole for my liking. Chose a great whisky for his men back in 1907 though did ol’ Ernest, so I was delighted when Richard Paterson recreated it (twice) over one hundred years later! The Journey blended malt contains rare Glen Mhor (1980) and heavily-peated Dalmore(!) as well as whiskies from Glenfarclas, Mannochmore, Tamnavulin, Ben Nevis, Aultmore, Fettercairn, Pulteney and Jura.
