Century-old Spirit of exploration trapped in ice.
 
Sir Ernest Shackleton was quite a crazy S.O.B. who led three British expeditions to the Antarctic. Since it's rather cold up there, he ordered 25 cases of fine Mackinlay's Rare Old Highland Malt Whisky for the Nimrod expedition in 1907. Many of those cases were left there mostly intact for more than a century until 2010, when the New Zealand Antarctic Heritage Trust discovered the icy treasure. The nerds were able to revive the lost formula like it was T-Rex DNA caught in amber. Shackleton Blended Malt Scotch Whisky is based on the ancient Highlander, bringing back the flavors of the yesteryear.
 
Master Blender Richard Paterson wanted to capture both the century-old character of Scotch and the very essence of Ernest himself. The sweet and citrusy expression is more accessible than the previous premium releases Journey and Discovery, and is (naturally) best enjoyed on ice.

Matt
Matt,
Pretty good whisky. Honestly, I mainly bought it because of the story behind it, and I was curious to see what Ernest Shackleton's Scotch would taste like. It's a nice blend, better with a bit of ice. Not bad!

Extra star because if the story. Something I would break out for friends and a scotch club that didn’t know the story. Moving past the story it is a good scotch. Vanilla. Graham crackers. Apples and oranges.
