Shackleton Blended Malt Bottling Note

Inspired by the whisky left behind by Antarctica by Sir Ernest Shackleton in the early 1900s and discovered frozen but intact over 100 years later, this blended malt continues in the footsteps of The Discovery and The Journey. It's created once again by Master Blender Richard Patterson based on the flavour profile of Shackleton's favourite tipple, though now more accessible than the aforementioned limited edition releases.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Golden Grahams and crunchy brown sugar. A hint of cinnamon-dusted malt.

Palate: Juicy apple and orange, with contained honey richness.

Finish: Lingering butterscotch and waxy orange.

Mackinlay's Shackleton Blended Malt Reviews

Not complex, easy going and a nice starter whisky

Blended whisky review☺️

Shackleton is based on a sample from the perfectly preserved bottles found at Shackletons base camp for his 1907 Nimrod expedition. Master blender Richard Patterson was tasked to create a dram that replicated the drink the team took out. About thirty notes on Amazon.

Colour added. I think chill filtered. Nice bottle design but shame it doesn’t come in a box.

Nose:-Very sweet so I liked straight off. Vanilla. Caramel. There’s a hint of smoke. Not strong. Hint of baked bread. It is very light on the nose. You can see it will be light from the get go.

Taste:-Icing sugar. Slightly syrupy. Very very light. Baked pastry. Vanilla. It’s exceptionally light. Glenmorangie light. Summer drink. Only 40% though so no ice needed. There’s no fruit. It isn’t overly complex but has a nice dry Sherry finish.

I like this. It’s perfect for the summer, or to introduce someone to whisky. This ranks with the Cutty Sark Prohibition edition. They are not hard work. You can sit with mates and enjoy these blends without concentrating on them.

Recommended.

OK interesting flavours but you have to search for them !

I’m picking up a bit of orange here, its quote an interesting flavour and good for £20.00 per bottle if thats the going rate as noted by other reviewers.

For £20, you got yourself a good cocktail mixer

Nose: Quite heavy on the sugar notes, brown sugar with a slight hint of sour mash maybe?
Palate: pepper pinch, light and sweet in fruit notes, maybe pear or apricot hints, thin honey, slight oiliness which I always find a nice feel.
Finish: The best part, but doesn't last very long however, pepper pinch, light oil coating mouth feel, fruit comes out and a lovely little hint of peatyness comes.

When its there it's nice, but it goes quickly, meaning you will drink this fast, rather than savour it. I think this would be a great mixer for a burnt cinnamon old fashioned twist or a refreshing ginger ale and lime thirst quencher.

Great Blend

It’s a wonderful old-fashioned blend with a little bit of ‘peat’ in the mix. A very very good scotch and makes a marvellous Whisky Mac.

Smooth.. simple but far from dull. Very drinkable

Really odd to see poor ratings for this absolute gem.

This is a minimalist whiskey that really really works. It's just GOOD.

If this whiskey were a colour pallette then it would be pastel from start to finish. It is subtle and moorish, it is sweet but not sickly. It is pure and a really clean drink that leaves you with little to no hangover.

A real find - begone you over complicated connoisseurs.. this is gold.

Warm and comforting

This whisky has a very warm and comforting nose and palate. I bought my first bottle two years ago, on the way home from work on a rainy night. It was the perfect pick-me-upper at the end of the day. I prefer this over any Johnny Walker.
