Following the success of Journey and Discovery, this release of Shackleton is a mainstream, accessible version. With notes of vanilla, honey and orchard fruits, this is a fitting tribute to the great explorer.Tasting Notes (1)
Shackleton Blended Malt
Tasting Notes from the Producer
Vanilla, toffee apple, brioche, Manuka honey and hints of marmalade followed by cinnamon, banana bread and ginger cake.
Treacle toffee, Demerara sugar and sweet sultanas, glazed pineapple, freshly baked crusted bread and mango cake.
Hot mulled wine, praline chocolate and oolong tea with a final whisper of gentle bonfire smoke and crème brûlée.
Pleasantly surprised at this price point, as good if not better than a lot of other 12 year old blended scotches. Definitely drink over ice and let it sit for a minute or two before your first sip... then enjoy. Smooth start and finish with almost a rum sweetness at the end. Great scotch for the price, enjoy responsibly ;)
we tried it for the novelty and interesting story- it has mid island tastes with neither peat nor iodine in large doses, and not as sweet as the dessert tasting notes suggest.
I rate this one for daily dram, I think it is reasonable value as is, but often gets reduced to £20 around holiday periods in Supermarkets and then is a steal. I find a bit of bitterness (in a pleasant way) in the finish and get a slightly maritime note and vague hint of Old Pultney but apart from that pretty much the tasting notes. Not one of my 'top drawer' whiskies but a pleasant and affordable drink.
Best when taken with ice, leave for a minute or two for all the flavour to release, so good I’ve bought a few bottles to see the winter through. Can be a bit harsh neat but when taken with ice, superb,better than most of my single malts.
Great tasting whisky
