Reviews and Tasting Notes

Appearance / Color
Golden Straw.

Nose / Aroma / Smell
Complex doesn’t begin to related the depth of flavor — from fresh-baked peasant bread and whipped butter to crushed apples and herbs.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
Viscous and mouth-coating — but light at the same time — with more autumn fruit, orange zest, butter-nut toffee, and more.

Finish
Rich with a strong finish that adds shortbread cookies to the flavor profile.

Top reviews for Mackinlay's Shackleton Rare Old:

— Not too sweet. Just the right smoothness

— Smooth for it's ABV, with a mild attack and sweet finish. The zest and fruitiness mixed with the buttery/toffee finish make for a relatively unique expression. Enjoyable, but not in the way most scotch whisky's are. It's a 7 with a bonus point for being 47% ABV. Well worth it for the price and a fine addition to any bar.
