Product Description

Featured in the 1001 whiskies you must try before you die book

An amazing recreation of the whisky that accompanied arctic explorer Ernest Shackleton and his crew on their unsuccessful expedition to reach the South Pole in 1907. This special bottling is presented in a replica bottle with a large wooden storage trunk.

The first release limited to 50,000 bottles

A replica of the whisky featured in Ian Buxton's 101 legendary whiskies you're dying to try but (probably) never will book.

Made up of Single malts from the Highland, Speyside and Island regions of Scotland and includes some old Glen Mhor (now a closed distillery) from a 1983 distillation.

Nose: Lime juice on fresh pineapple, freshly baked bread, apple strudel, nutmeg and clove, salted vanilla, buttterey cake mix, candy floss and ginger.

Palate: More of that baked bread and pastry influence here on a sooty lime and pineapple led palate with aromatic spice, lemon sorbet, almond and toasted vanillin oak.

Finish: Herbal lime cordial, subtle smoke, salted vanilla, almond milk, baked biscuits with aromatic spices, ginger and a dusting of white pepper on ripe melon.

An interesting experiment and a curiosity amongst History and whisky buffs alike.
