Mackinlay Shackleton´s The Discovery Edition no. 1, 47,3 %

Review #139
Also called “Rare Old Highland Malt”. It has a fascinating story, so go read it if you have the time! It is a remake of Mackinlays Rare Old Highland Malt from 1907 from Glen Mhor, which was found on Antarctica in 2007. The smell is typical Highland. You get some light peat, barley, grass and fresh fruits.

The taste is very warming, and luckily it wasn’t watered down to 40 %. It is full of spices with some oak, nuts and a light creamy sugary finish.

They believe that the whisky from 1907 was matured in sherry wood and the peat was from Orkney. It is fun trying to taste whisky like it did more than a hundred years ago. I will rate this 89/100 (21/23/23/22).
