Golden yellow color. Intricate and smoky aromas of peat, toasty nougat, dried stone fruits, and chocolate cake batter with a supple dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a long, complex finish with notes of honey, peppery spice, white cigar ash, and grass dancing on the palate. A must try blend with cigars.

Rarely has a blend caused as much excitement as this one, but with good reason. This is also known as the Shackleton whisky, and is a recreation of the whisky abandoned in the Antarctic by explorer Ernest Shackleton more than 100 years ago. It has lemon, spring blossom, and wafts of smoke on the nose. The taste is full and citrusy, with peat and pepper in attendance. Beautifully balanced and outstanding, but there are just 50,000 bottles, so snap it up.
