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)
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.
Low on the peaty scale. I liked it a lot.
A splendid blend
It tastes really good, and definitely worth the money if you can get it. It's only 40% alcohol compared to 43% which most whiskies are. It has a malt-forward nose with vanilla, toffee and a little astringency on the nose (very mild wine vinegar) and some fatty-acid esters. Golden yellow in color (very little brown tint). Taste - very balanced, no harsh peaty or medicinal notes, definite vanilla, esters, toffee-apple flavor - like many Speyside malts, slight solventy aftertaste but not unpleasant.
Possibly the worst whisky I have paid for in a long time. Which is strange because other reviews are positive - I can only guess the whisky blend has changed to much younger spirit. Because this is VERY young whisky - not good, even at a knock down price.
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 ;)
