Surprisingly well balanced for a relatively cheap single malt. Will keep it in the mix for my daily scotch.

Not the best taste...but I bought it for the story.

Shauna,
Priced to be a "working man's scotch." I bought it thinking it would be sweet and floral, what i got was a mouth full of smoke. However, I learned to like it mid way through the bottle ;), but i cant recommend it.

Eric,
Great flavor profile. The licorice is subtle but noticeable. Great value.

Michael,
Easy on the nose, vanilla and honey. Lighter in color than I thought it would be. Smooth up front with a slight warmth on finish.

Very light flavor. Small hint of sweetness and floral taste.

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.
