Whisky Reviews for Mackinlay's Shackleton
8 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 77.23 points
- Nice bottle, nice story, tastes good with a smoky note, but is somehow too young and too spicy
- Undermatured, unimpressive. Thanks, but I'll pass.
- honestly better with soda or "highball" style.
- I cant believe the great explorer Shackleton, would have taken such a rubbish whisky on his expedition - this is perhaps the worst I have tasted in a long while.
Tasted 2020. Early bottles were rated highly, so the blend must have declined considerably since then. My advice is buy something else.
New make spirit, pear drops, 3 y/o lowland whisky. Zero cask influence.
Spicy, again lowland whisky (but not as young as the nose), mint, quite sharp and prickly. This is the best part of the whisky and if it wasnt for the nose and finish it would be almost drinkable. Loch Lomand in the blend?
So short ! vanishes quickly leaving a sour taste in the mouth. You really dont want another sip. Truly awful, should never have been bottled.
- a little more complex malt blend reminiscent of the Speyside, sometimes a bit sprightly. Easy drinkable, fruity and mild, but not overly impressive.
The best thing is the memory of Shackleton, one of the most important and humanly impressive men in the field of official research
- An interesting, uncomplicated, average whiskey - its history is best. Compared to the "The Journey" a clear step backwards!
For 33,00 € / liter (2018 / DEU) now an acceptable price!
mild, slightly fruity (apples, pears), malt, honey, vanilla;
on arrival malty, sweet (honey), caramel, some vanilla, spicy oak, creamy, quite simple;
short, malty, touch of oak;
- Simple and well balanced
Smoke, sea, exotic dried fruits then appear prunes
Smoky and sweet notes, hidden appricot,
Short, smoky and sweet
- This reminded me a little of a young Strathisla?
