When Antarctic explorer Ernest Shackleton abandoned one of his polar missions in 1907, he also abandoned a crate of Scotch buried in the ice near his hut. 100 years later a New Zealand conservation crew working on restoring the old base discovered ten bottles, creating a ripple of excitement throughout the Scotch world. Three of the bottles were flown to Scotland where scientific analysis revealed their taste profile, alcohol level, the fact that Orkney peat was used in the malting and that the spirit had aged in American white oak that in which sherry had previously been stored. Efforts to recreate that old whiskey have resulted in a blend of malts from Glen Mhor and Dalmore distilleries, some others from Speyside and a few from elsewhere. The whiskey is soft and smooth and light honey in color.
