It contains whiskies fromSpeyside, the Islands, the Highlands, and some rare 1983 Glen Mhor . Whyte and Mackay produced 50,000 bottles. This distillate is morenovelty than good whisky. Over-priced, over-hypedbut it is a bit of fun and if you have an opportunity to sip a dram, well this is a greatopportunity for story-telling. As I develop my skills in the area of whisky appreciation, my neighborhood adult beverage depot storemanager and I learned that we share a love of good whisky. One day while visiting his establishment, he quickly pulled me aside and wewalked to a back room. There, with a big smile on his face, he told me the story of Shackletons Mackinlay Scotch Whisky, and thenpoured me a wee sample. Although not one of my favorite whiskies, it did provide an opportunity for two whisky connoisseurs to cometogether, experience the moment, share a story and marvel at the unending pleasures provided by this aqua vita.Watch the movie by clicking here.M rating: 3Ms MMMs Cost: __
