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.

    A very nice blend, pleasant and easy on the palate, would even bring a smile to non-whisky-drinker's face.

    Bland, soft to the point of anonymity and lacking character.

    Delightful, non-challenging but in a good way. An excellent whisky to offer good friends for a celebration, and it goes well with sharp, salty Cornish cheese.

    Reminds me of Johnnie Walker Black but a little less intense with less smoke and a touch more sweetness. Not unhapppy for the price.

    It reminds me of trying whisky when I was much younger. Is there an 'old fashioned' taste? This is good hopefully and Whisky won't go out of fashion of course. I think it's a fine blend and this is proved by the fact the bottle is reducing more rapidly than others in the cupboard with 'possibly' a better pedigree.

    Light, dry and definitely a hint of ginger - almost refreshing. Lacks body and finish, but a nice summer whisky.

    Just as "Bifter" said; "Young, hot and one dimensional.".

    Lots of body and flavour, and very smooth. Tasting notes are the most accurately descriptive I’ve read. Definitely a quality blended whisky that kicks a lot of single malts in the same price bracket into the long grass. I was a single malt whisky snob until trying this whisky - not any more! The heritage of the whisky also supplies a feeling that is as warm as its finish. My rating here reflects the above and the price I paid (?25).

    Better than most entry level single malts, despite its branded credentials, it displays a wonderful complexity and sophisticated dryness on the palate, with a hint of peat in the finish. Not too much added caramel and something a bit different - if you are choosing between this and a familiar branded single malt, I would give this one a go

    Somewhat thin but quite smooth. It's in the same class as Monkey Shoulder...a bit sweeter though. Very good value so it gets an extra star.

    A very very good entry level blend. Beautiful light floral flavors, honey, vanilla, and thyme. Great pairing with a cigar or a summery beer.
